Statoil selects Irap RMS modeling suite

Statoil awards Roxar a multi-million deal for provision of reservoir modeling software.

Statoil has selected Roxar’s Irap RMS as its main tool for reservoir modeling in a five year deal. Following a year long tender process, the multi million dollar agreement will allow Statoil’s geologists, geophysicists, and reservoir engineers unlimited global access to Irap RMS.


Irap RMS will enable the Statoil teams to work within 2D mapping, 3D geological modeling and well planning, on all available hardware platforms running on Windows, Linux and Unix.


Sjur Talstad, Statoil senior VP for E&P Technology said, ‘This is a milestone agreement. By partnering with Roxar, Statoil has set out its clear intention of continuing to improve recovery from its producing fields as well as meeting its requirements for efficient workflow—making better 3D reservoir models in less time. With our new operatorships it is essential that we continue to invest in and apply the very best sub-surface reservoir modeling technology.’
