PDS Group develops software applications and eServices that leverage the latest advances in computer and data sciences, to solve our customers' most difficult problems. Working collaboratively with our customers, we take the best technologies that IT can offer, and use them to craft software products that not only apply better science, but enable the science to be applied more effectively in everyday workflows.


Want to improve your workflows, or review your existing Petrel* E&P software platform models? We have a team of geoscientists ready to help you with reservoir and basin modelling. We also offer consulting services for a range of digital transformation projects, including systems integration, big data analytics, and artificial intelligence.
