SOUTHPOINTE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 16, 2009-- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that it will showcase its oil and gas industry solutions at the 2009 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), one of the sector’s most popular events. Due to uncertainties and risks in this market, engineers and designers increasingly rely on engineering simulation software in their ongoing exploration and production projects. Solutions from ANSYS assist oil and gas organizations in a broad range of applications, equipment and processes, enabling them to explore fields once considered inaccessible and to develop the technology needed to cost-effectively drill, produce, transport and refine the resources.
OTC is a leading forum for those who develop offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production and environmental protection. To address the technical and engineering challenges that are present in this industry, ANSYS will highlight the specific and unique capabilities of its portfolio targeted for the oil and gas sector. Product demonstrations and technical staff at the OTC will emphasize ANSYS software features relevant to industry applications, including drilling and well completion, offshore structure safety, oil and gas machinery, riser design, piping, flow assurance, subsea structures, marine applications, sensor and control systems, and signal integrity.
“Software from ANSYS is a valued tool for many in the oil and gas industry. The technology has been used for years to develop innovative products and improve performance and reliability in demanding offshore and subsea applications,” said Ahmad Haidari, director, industry marketing at ANSYS, Inc. “OTC attendees will have the opportunity to put the power of ANSYS to work for them, no matter the application — fluid dynamics, structural, electromagnetic, hydrodynamic or thermal analysis.”
ANSYS will be at booth 4705 at the OTC, which takes place May 4 to 7 in Houston, Texas, U.S.A.
