Ridgeway Kite was formed in 2013 by a group of 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 aims to increase productivity of engineers.


Ridgeway Kite strives to work closely with clients, understand the engineering and geological complexity in their models, to improve workflows and to create innovative functionality in 6X.


Ridgeway Kite has formed Technology Partnerships where collaborative R&D on specific domain themes have produced new, advanced solutions for our partners.

Technology Partnerships

Ridgeway Kite Technology Partnerships offer the following benefits:

  • Synergistic & long term relationship
  • Collaborative R&D
  • Domain/theme focus
  • Focus on solving partners’ problems/models
  • Priority simulator development
  • Priority support and problem solving
  • Regular meetings, workshops and visits
  • Improved access to licenses
