Agreement Highlights Commitment to Oil and Gas Research and Education

Khalifa University of Science and Technology has signed an agreement with Petroleum Experts (Petex), a UK-based petroleum engineering and structural geology company that has contributed the equivalent of £3,360,244.76 to Khalifa University through the renewal of its licensed software programs to enhance research capabilities in the oil and gas sector.


In addition to this, Petroleum Experts has granted Khalifa University access to their licensed software programs which are part of Petex’s Integrated Production Modelling software (IPM). The IPM suite of licenses models oil or gas production systems, including reservoirs, wells, and surface networks through the GAP, GAP Transient, Prosper, MBAL, PVTP, Reveal, Move, and Resolve licenses, enabling engineers to design complete field models seamlessly.


According to the agreement, Petroleum Experts has also committed to providing ongoing technical support and assistance related to the software and the associated hardware device called Hardlock. Support services include network-related issues, replacement of inactive or lost bitlocks, assistance with software installation, and free software upgrades when available.
