Original Founders Snap Up Ownership of Knowledge Reservoir

Knowledge Reservoir, a leading global geosciences and engineering consulting services company, has announced the completion of a Management Buy Out of the remaining shareholding held in the company by Ziebel AS.

Dr. Ellul, President and CEO of Knowledge Reservoir, stated, "This is an excellent time to be back at the helm of the company, given the ever increasing need for agility in delivering products and services to our client-base."
