Webinar: Investigating specific uncertainties in the reservoir modelling workflow Ava General Online, 10 April 2019
Effectively exploring subsurface uncertainties is one of the challenges facing geoscientists when investigating and modelling reservoirs. Join our webinar to see how incorporating analogue data into reservoir models and investigating multiple saturation height functions, can help provide insights into some of the uncertainties within a reservoir.

Do you work within geomodelling? Join us for an evening of networking, where we’d like to learn more about you and your work, as well as tell you a bit more about ourselves too. Optional demos of our products will also be available. 

Spaces are limited. Please RSVP: mike.bosco@pds.group.

Webinar: The impact of saturation height functions on real-world reservoir models Saturation Online, 15 January 2019
Saturation height_functions are of great importance for the determination of hydrocarbon volumes in reservoir models.
Join our webinar to see how applying different saturation height function methods can lead to
differing views of fluid distribution within a hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir and the impact on volumetric ranges.

We are proud to be sponsoring this meeting and taking part in the scientific programme. Look out
for members of Team Ava if you want to learn more about our products.
