Ryder Scott designs reserves management systems that combine and integrate processes, software and personnel to enable a company to efficiently track changes in reserves quantification and classification. The systems enable management to make decisions on property portfolios, including acquisitions and divestitures, exploration and development, reservoir and field management and other upstream activities.
The design of the reserves management process includes charting workflow, timing events and integrating the process with proper software and databases. Ryder Scott collaborates with software vendors to enhance commercial applications to more efficiently manage clients’ reserves databases.
Solutions vary from custom to commercial to integrated, hybrid systems that help eliminate redundancy and inefficiency. Ryder Scott develops custom software applications for reserves evaluations and other technical tasks if commercial programs cannot meet client needs.
The firm offers low-cost proprietary programs to clients as a courtesy. Ryder Scott’s primary business is not software development or vending.
Furthermore, the firm has no ownership interests in any hardware or software developers. This ensures that Ryder Scott recommendations are unbiased.
