Description

Petroleum Data Analytics (PDA) includes the science and engineering application of Artificial Intelligence in petroleum engineering. PDA’s objective is petroleum engineering problem solving and decision-making. PDA will fully control the future of science and engineering in the petroleum industry. It is highly important for the new generation of scientists and petroleum professionals to develop a correct and realistic understanding of Artificial Intelligence.

Like the application this technology in other engineering related disciplines, Petroleum Data Analytics addresses two major issues that determine the success or failure of this technology in our industry: (a) the differences between “engineering” and “non-engineering” problem solving and decision-making, and (b) how Artificial Intelligence is differentiated from traditional engineering problem solving and traditional statistical analysis.

In the past few years, lack of success or mediocre outcomes of Artificial Intelligence in our industry has been quite common. To a large degree, this has to do with superficial understanding of Artificial Intelligence by petroleum engineering service companies and vendors and their concentration on marketing schemes rather than on science and technology.

Shahab D. Mohaghegh, a pioneer in the application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the Exploration and Production industry, is Professor of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering at West Virginia University and the president and CEO of Intelligent Solutions, Inc. (ISI). He is the director of WVU-LEADS (Laboratory for Engineering Application of Data Science).


Including more than 30 years of research and development in the petroleum engineering application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, he has authored four books (Shale Analytics, Data Driven Reservoir Modeling, Application of Data-Driven Analytics for the Geological Storage of CO2, Smart Proxy Modeling), more than 230 technical papers and carried out more than 60 projects for independents, NOCs and IOCs. He is a SPE Distinguished Lecturer (2007 and 2020) and has been featured four times as the Distinguished Author in SPE’s Journal of Petroleum Technology (JPT 2000 and 2005). He is the founder of SPE’s Technical Section dedicated to AI and machine learning (Petroleum Data-Driven Analytics, 2011). He has been honored by the U.S. Secretary of Energy for his AI-based technical contribution in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon (Macondo) incident in the Gulf of Mexico (2011) and was a member of U.S. Secretary of Energy’s Technical Advisory Committee on Unconventional Resources in two administrations (2008-2014). He represented the United States in the International Standard Organization (ISO) on Carbon Capture and Storage technical committee (2014-2016).
