Event #1 Description/Presentation Abstract: Optimizing brownfield production using machine learning, reservoir physics, and advanced mathematics


Generating production growth from brownfields does not have to be linked directly to capital spending or overly aggressive reservoir management. Digital Oil Recovery™ is providing a compelling alternative to traditional approaches by using machine learning, reservoir physics, and advanced mathematics to create a behavioral model of the reservoir and optimize its development, delivering production gains of up to 20% or more without capital investment.
