Midland Valley is the world leader in the field of structural geology, providing expert consultancy and the Move™ suite of geological software. We work with a wide range of sectors around the world including: upstream oil and gas; mineral exploration and resource development; carbon capture and storage; radioactive waste management; geothermal; and geotechnical engineering industries. Our software suite Move is the technology set of choice for more than 250 commercial clients worldwide.
We live by our founding principle – by geologists for geologists – and this ensures that the company displays a single-minded commitment to the needs of our clients.
For more than thirty years, geoscientists at Midland Valley have used restoration and balancing techniques to unravel geological evolution and extract unseen information from available data. Our ground-breaking approach minimises technical uncertainty, and enables companies to reduce risk in a methodical and cost-effective way.
We maintain close links with university research groups and we are continually looking at ways to invest in the future of our science and to assist the next generation of geoscientists.
Move is the core application of the Move suite. It provides a powerful stand-alone environment for data integration, cross-section construction and 3D Model Building and forms the base for the specialist structural modules.
The Move suite is the most complete structural modelling and analysis toolkit available. It provides a full digital environment for best practice structural modelling to reduce risk and uncertainty in geological models. The Move suite provides a platform for integrating and interpreting data, cross-section construction, 3D Model Building, 2D and 3D Kinematic Modelling, Geomechanical Modelling, Fracture Modelling, Stress Analysis, Fault Response Modelling, Strain Capture and Fault Analysis.
The 2018.1 release of Move includes substantial new features, as well as improvements to the existing functionality and usability. This first section provides an overview of the new features, enhancements, and performance improvements to all current modules and tools and is followed by a more detailed breakdown of the changes to Move Core and the Modules.
