Ridgeway Kite was formed in 2013 by a group of highly experienced reservoir simulation developers with the aim of improving and simplifying reservoir simulation software and the service provided. With the release of 6X, Ridgeway Kite increases the productivity of engineers.

Working closely with our clients, we strive to understand and capture the engineering and geological complexity in your models, to improve workflows. Through this collaborative approach we can create unique and innovative functionality in 6X.

Ridgeway Kite has formed Technology Partnerships where collaborative R&D on specific domain themes rapidly produces new and advanced solutions for our partners.

Technology Partnerships

Ridgeway Kite Technology Partnerships offer the following benefits:

  • Collaborative R&D
  • Domain/theme focus solutions
  • Focus on solving specific partners’ problems/models
  • Priority simulator development
  • Priority support and problem solving
  • Synergistic & long term relationship
  • High bandwidth of communication
  • Improved access to licenses

Total A.S licenses Ridgeway Kite 6X reservoir simulator. / 20th December 2019

Total A.S has installed several licenses of 6X on a massive HPC cluster farm at their technical Center in Pau, France. This will enable Total A.S to take full advantage of the highly scaleable nature of the software, applying it to both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. “We are extremely excited to add Total as a […]

Canadian SPE Booth 1333 / 29th September 2019

Come by and see how we can help you create sensible child well production forecasts, and make sense of their production history. Find a better way to manage your unconventional reservoirs.  

Denver Users workshop / 8th August 2019

Great workshop with a cross section of 6X users in Denver in July. Getting their valuable feedback, insight and priorities on what they need us to be working on in the software to help meet the demands of their projects. Giving our senior developers first hand feedback ensures no dilution of the message. Let us […]

6X Public Training Workshop for Unconventionals / 1st July 2019

Last week saw the first of a well supported program of complimentary public training workshops in Houston. A class for reservoir engineers working on Unconventional resources. If you would be interested in joining a future workshop or to find out more please contact Bill Baksi in our Houston office.
