Landmark Learning Central Update  Sign in required

The Nexus® Getting Started Course describes the features and workflows offered in Nexus software. Nexus is the first reservoir simulation environment software with fully-coupled surface and subsurface formulation. The course videos provide an overview of the product, information on building simulation models (single or multi-reservoir), pre- and post-processing applications, model conversions, instructions for running simulations, history matching, and forecasting. A dataset is available to use for practice and to assist with learning from the course.

The DecisionSpace® Fracture Productivity Getting Started Course provides an exciting learning opportunity for new users to quickly run a basic Fracture Productivity simulation. Well-explained video illustrations cover the fundamentals of building a case, setting reservoir properties and incorporating fractures (both natural and hydraulic).

Landmark is constantly expanding its learning resources; therefore, check back regularly for updated content.
