Ridgeway Kite has published a new Technology Bulletin on Enhanced Geothermal Systems Modeling. This demonstrates the use of 6X to model renewable energy generation using enhanced geothermal processes.
Ridgeway Kite at URTEC 2022
Ridgeway Kite will be exhibiting at URTEC 2022 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, Texas, from June 20-22. Come and visit us at Booth 1408.
Webinar – The 6X Reservoir Simulator
The 3rd in our series of Webinars was presented by Pete Forster on On Wednesday 25th May 2022. Unlike previous Webinars, that focused on the web interface 6XONLINE, this Webinar concentrated on the more advanced features available by using the underlying simulator 6X. The session was well-attended and gave rise to an interesting Q&A session.
As usual you can access the slides or the video from these links.
Webinar – Introduction to 6XONLINE (Part 2)
On Wednesday 30th March 2022 Pete Forster of Ridgeway Kite presented the second in our series of well-attended Webinars introducing 6XONLINE. 6XONLINE is a web interface to the 6X simulator, allowing users to create simple models of hydraulic fracturing scenarios within minutes. These can then be submitted to run on local hardware, or on servers on the cloud.
If you missed it you can still access the slides or the video from these links.

Enhanced Oil Recovery Technology Bulletin
Ridgeway Kite has published a new Technology Bulletin on Enhanced Oil Recovery. This demonstrates the use of 6X to model EOR strategies, such as cyclic gas injection (huff and puff), in the context of unconventional reservoirs.
Stress Shadowing Technology Bulletin
Ridgeway Kite has published a new Technology Bulletin on Stress Shadowing showing how the stress field generated by hydraulic fracturing of one stage can affect the extent of subsequent stages. The modelling of this phenomenon is possible due to the coupled stress and fluid flow simulation in 6X.
Infill Wells Technology Bulletin
Ridgeway Kite has recently published a new Technology Bulletin on Infill Wells. This shows how to manage spacing and scheduling of infill wells while limiting fracture-driven interactions.
