IRT and CMG announce strategic partnership (Dec 31, 2011)

IRT are pleased to announce the adoption of the Computer Modeling Group (CMG) suite reservoir simulation software IMEX, GEM and STARS - as our preferred choice for on-going and future projects. While we retain licenses from other vendors, you, our clients, will still have a large say in which software we use in your studies. However, if asked for a preference, we will now be using and recommending the appropriate package from the CMG Suite.

As users of CMG software for over 9 years, IRT have been impressed with its ability to solve the many challenging problems encountered in our shop. We have successfully applied CMG systems to primary, secondary IOR, and tertiary EOR projects. We have also successfully reproduced results from other reservoir simulation packages during large scale project conversions.

The GEM and IMEX applications include advanced features as part of the basic package which are optional or nonexistent in the competition's software. Examples include modeling thermal effects as well as having dual porosity/dual permeability options.

The BUILDER pre-processing module has shown great versatility in importing complex, faulted geocellular models from different vendors. Alternatively, a simulation model can be built from the ground up from basic geologic elements, such as well logs and maps.

Perhaps even more important to us is the clear dedication shown by CMG management to provide the highest quality software AND support. In our view, the CMG team are far more responsive to issues that arise than their commercial competitors. It appears to us that their business model is much better aligned with the reservoir simulation community due to a corporate focus on our needs.
