Our desire to build fully-integrated and consistent geologic models requires the use of software that is highly compatible with this goal. For 1D maturity modeling we use Novva, software that we have created ourselves. Novva will also be available for licensing by exploration companies, petroleum agencies, and universities. It is designed to be both an educational tool (for upper-level university classes, graduate courses, theses, and company training for young geoscientists) and a uniquely valuable exploration technology.
