Reservoir management and advanced optimization for thermal and thermal-solvent based recovery processes using fundamentals, scaled models, and machine learning

The project deals with optimization of thermal and solvent aided processes for heavy oil recovery. Using machine leaning methods, scaled models and real-time data integration; a work-flow for steam allocation under uncertainity for SAGD multilateral well pad operations will be developed. Big data analytics and artificial intelligence algorithms will be applied to improve the economic, environmental, planning, and forecasting aspects of reservoir management.
