RING Consortium

The RING Consortium welcomes companies, universities and research institutes who want to:

  • Advance the state of the art of subsurface modeling at basin and reservoir scales.
  • Contribute to research and technology in subsurface data and knowledge integration.
  • Support training of graduate students in geosciences and software development. 

RING is currently funded by a worldwide consortium of universities and companies, including both international and national oil companies and service providers.
