No matter where you are located, you can enroll for any training with us - because all our training sessions are delivered online by live instructors using interactive, intensive learning methods.

Originally developed by ECL or Exploration Consultants Limited, Eclipse is an oil and gas reservoir simulator software tool which is currently being developed marketed and distributed by SIS which is a division of Schlumberger. The software tool provides end-to-end and robust mechanical solutions for all kinds of reservoirs and development models for petroleum refineries. The Eclipse simulator has created a benchmark for commercially distributed reservoir simulation tools with its immense capabilities, robust nature, swiftness, parallel scalability and widespread platform coverage. The Eclipse simulator has proven to be one of the most feature-rich and interactive reservoir simulators in the market which covers the entire spread of reservoir models such as black oil, compositional, thermal finite volume, streamline simulations and more. The software tool also provides a wide array of add on options such as grid refinement, coalbed methane, gas field operations etc. The entire simulation can be easily tailored and customized to suit the need of the organization to provide the correct simulation results.
