Global Major licenses 6X

To help model their unconventional reservoirs, another global major energy company has licensed multiple copies of 6X in North America.
“This is the second major international energy company to have licensed 6X in the last couple of months. It is a clear indication of the acceptance of 6X in providing a unique solution for clients to model the added complexities of unconventional reservoirs, improve production and reduce costs” commented Tommy Miller, RKS CEO.

Denver Users workshop

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.
