About the Webinar

Shell FRED 2020 replaced the previous version of the software (FRED v7.1.1).

This webinar discussed the software’s new, intuitive modernized interface which will enable users to rapidly understand a broad range of consequence predictions, complemented by specialized models for specific requirements.

Shell FRED 2020 has been developed and validated through Shell’s extensive program of large-scale experiments, a substantial investment, joint industry projects, and published scientific literature.
