Assisted History Matching Using Bayesian Inference: Application to Multiwell Simulation of a Huff ’n’ Puff Pilot in the Permian Basin
The dynamic nature of unconventional-reservoir developments calls for the availability of fast and reliable history-matching methods for simulation models. In this paper, the authors apply an assisted-history-matching approach to a pair of wells in the Wolfcamp formation.
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.
Data Privacy and Data Security Are Not the Same
It's not just semantics. Companies that fail to understand the differences between data privacy and data security put their brands and bottom lines in jeopardy.
Compositional Simulation, Artificial Intelligence Optimize Water Injection
The complete paper discusses optimization of a development plan involving low-salinity water injection.
Johan Sverdrup’s Digital Operations Drive Efficiency, Safety
The complete paper describes the development of the “digital field worker” at Johan Sverdrup, an initiative that has changed the approach toward not only construction and completion but also operations.
A Digital Approach to Reducing Human Error
As companies begin to embrace the concepts of digitalization and big data, the main challenge remains: How do we make a step change in reducing human error in heavily paper-based operating and maintenance procedures?
Column: Could “Mindful AI” Be the Key to Successful AI?
“Being mindful is about being intentional,” said Ahmer Inam, chief AI officer at technology consulting firm Pactera Edge. “Mindful A.I. is about being aware and purposeful about the intention of, and emotions we hope to evoke through, an artificially intelligent experience.”
Top 5 Programming Languages for Data Scientists To Learn
Data scientists working with large data sets or in high-performance computational environments may find these programming languages essential to extracting data quickly and effortlessly.
What Is an "Edge Cloud?" The Wild Card That Could Upend the Cloud
It would literally be a world full of data centers, including the largest and the smallest varieties. But whose networks would they be? The answer depends on where these data centers are—or perhaps vice versa.
