A senior official at Rock Flow Dynamics, a Russian energy engineering company, announced that it has delivered 160 versions of a significant oil and gas reservoir simulation software, namely tNavigator, to Iranian universities for educational purposes.

Speaking on the sidelines of a ceremony for signing a memorandum of understanding worth $23 million on the donation of the software to Iran’s prominent universities, Kirill Bogachev, RFD’s chief technology officer, said the MoU is to benefit both Iran and RFD, which can result in productive educational collaboration between the two countries, Shana reported.

Rock Flow Dynamics develops software for the petroleum industry. It offers many advanced innovative tools for reservoir engineering implemented in tNavigator. Apart from software, RFD also provides a wide range of consulting services.

The company’s industry-leading tNavigator is the first and only product on the market, which dynamically combines a fully interactive 3D graphical user interface and a record-breaking parallel supercomputing engine.

Bogachev added that tNavigator is a software that, while checking available data, can create new models for predicting oil and gas reservoir’s behavior and be employed in reservoir planning.

“In view of Iran’s economic conditions, RDF plans to design different modules for the country’s oilfields in cooperation with Iranian specialists,” he said.

Referring to the Persian Gulf country’s progress in oil industry, Bogachev noted that many Iranian companies are exporting their products.

Iran has reiterated that its main factor in cooperation with foreign firms is the transfer of technology.
