The Challenge

With a decades-long working relationship of building their in-house simulation capabilities with the support of SIMULIA technologies, ExxonMobil wanted to further strengthen their simulation toolkit to enable them to better address the many challenges involved in the subsurface extraction of shale gas. 

Dassault Systèmes Response

SIMULIA worked closely with Exxon to develop state-of-the-art general-purpose material models, finite-element technology, and computational procedures including fluid dynamics (CFD) and particle flow dynamics (PFD)—aimed at identifying solutions that could be applied in the field.


This collaborative effort between ExxonMobil and SIMULIA led to fundamental enhancements to the power of simulation to address key drilling, completion and production challenges. SIMULIA’s advanced simulation technologies and 3D visualization are playing an increasingly vital role in the success
