Compositional Simulation, Artificial Intelligence Optimize Water Injection
The complete paper discusses optimization of a development plan involving low-salinity water injection.
AI-Based Decline-Curve Analysis Manages Reservoir Performance
Decline-curve analysis is one of the more widely used forms of data analysis that evaluates well behavior and forecasts production and reserves. This paper presents technologies that apply DCA methods to wells in an unbiased, systematic, intelligent, and automated fashion.
Adaptive Drilling Application Uses AI To Enhance On-Bottom Drilling Performance
An intelligent drilling optimization application performs as an adaptive autodriller. In the Marcellus Shale, ROP improved 61% and 39% and drilling performance, measured as hours on bottom, improved 25%.
AI Meets HMI: Next-Gen Robots Take on the Tough Tasks To Reduce Risks on Rigs
With their gee-whiz—albeit artificial—intelligence, robots may be the industry’s answer to jobs deemed dangerous, dirty, distant, or dull.
Baker Hughes Adds an AI Option
Baker Hughes is still a GE company, but it has partnered with a second company for artificial intelligence expertise, C3.ai. The deal is expected to speed the integration of AI into oilfield operations by the company which also markets GE’s device analytics platform, Predix.
How Southeast Asian Upstream Operators Are Digitalizing
Malaysia’s Petronas, Shell Malaysia, and Thailand’s PTTEP are now in the midst of full-scale digital adoption. The companies are beginning to see results, but none is counting on a “big bang” in development of the technology soon.
BP and Startup Beyond Limits Try To Prove That Cognitive AI Is Ready for Oil and Gas
BP has invested more than $100 million into nine different startup companies in the past 2 years—but only one of them wants to turn your brain into a piece of its software.
An Artificial Intelligence Belief System Reduces Nonproductive Time
A new detection and alerting methodology, validated on more than 100 North America onshore wells, blends well information and real-time data to determine a probabilistic belief system. An operator used the system to detect, predict, and alert rig crews to washouts and pump failures.
Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Support Marine Mining
Technologies are being developed that have the potential to support marine mining in all stages from prospection to decommissioning. These developments will likely have substantial influence in the oil and gas industry, itself searching for ways to maximize exploitation of assets.
Total, Google Cloud to Team on AI for Upstream
Total is expanding its development and use of artificial intelligence to bolster its exploration work, collaborating with Google Cloud—which is stepping up its presence in the oil and gas industry.
The Industry of the Future: What Does It Look Like?
A look at how policy, future workforce perception, and industry standards will shape energy companies in the near and distant future.
Artificial Intelligence Requires Left-Brain Thinking To Boost Reliability
How can AI systems incorporate processes mimicking the slower logic- and causality-based reasoning patterns of the left brain?
Halliburton-Microsoft Strategic Alliance Hopes To Speed Industry Transformation
Halliburton and Microsoft believe that by working together they can step up the pace of digital transformation across the E&P industry.
Artificial Intelligence Holds Promise for Seismic and Drilling Data
As artificial intelligence makes a significant impact on various industries, an expert examines the roles it could play in streamlining oil and gas operations in the near future.
Devon Energy Rises to the Top as a Data-Driven Producer
