Schlumberger said Tuesday it has acquired Rock Deformation Research (RDR), a UK-based company specialized in geological software development and structural geology consultancy for the oil and gas industry.

RDR’s Structural and Fault Analysis module provides users with tools to reduce risk and quantify uncertainty, Schlumberger said.

‘The acquisition of RDR will allow us to provide our customers with an integrated solution to address fault and structural geological exploration and development challenges,’ said Uwem Ukpong, president, Schlumberger Information Solutions.

Professor Rob Knipe is the founder and chairman of RDR.

He said, “As our industry goes through a significant crew change with young professionals filling the gap of retiring experienced staff, Studio Advisor provides software-guided workflows that improve decision-making processes and enhance knowledge sharing and best practices.”

RDR has about 40 employees. Most are based in Leeds, UK.
