Sciencesoft are a Scottish company and a world leader in 3D visualisation and analysis software for the global oil and gas industry. The company was co-founded in 1995 by two brothers, Dr Lindsay Wood (Director of R&D) and William Wood (Director of Sales & Marketing). Dr Angela Wood was pivotal in establishing the company and is now director of Business Support.
Sciencesoft’s Reservoir Simulation Suite of products helps engineers analyse reservoir simulation results, enabling engineers to make multi-million dollar field planning and development decisions.

Since then pre-processing, sector modelling, scheduling and history matching tools have been added to the growing portfolio of products.
Sciencesoft’s success is based on constant innovation designed to meet the needs of a fast moving oil and gas industry. Sciencesoft’s efforts have been recognised by prestigious awards, such as the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, and the John Logie Baird Award for Impact through Innovation.
