30 January 2023

Move Software

Staff and students at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences will be able to gain fascinating new insights into geological modelling of the subsurface through new gifted software.

Petroleum Experts (Petex), a well-known petroleum engineering and structural geology company, has kindly donated 10 licenses of their latest Move structural modelling and analysis software to the 3D Seismic Laboratory to help with research and education.

The software suite, valued at £1,872,218.26, is considered the industry standard for geological modelling and structural analysis of Earth’s deep interior.

Cardiff University has used the Move software to support 30+ international publications over the past 8 years and in postgraduate and undergraduate projects.

The software will be used by students and researchers at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences to model fault reactivation and associated fluid flow at distinct scales of analysis.

We sincerely thank Petex for this generous donation.
