HR-285 Neural Networks and Machine Learning Applications in Petroleum Exploration


Geoscientists, engineers and technical staff who want to understand statistical and machine learning theory and how to apply these increasingly critical techniques.


- A comprehensive overview of the generation of seismic attributes
- A discussion on how to derive complex relationships between seismic attributes and petrophysical parameters
- An understanding of how to recognize reliable attributes when estimating reservoir parameters
- Basic theory of neural network and machine learning technologies
- Application of neural network technology in well log prediction, petrophysical volume generation and seismic lithology classification
- A combination of theory and practical exercises, which equip the user with the necessary skills to apply the Emerge software module to challenging geoscience tasks

Learning Objectives

Each section will include both numerical exercises and real data examples taken from geoscience. The objective of the course is to get behind all the current “hype” around the subject of machine learning and to understand the fundamentals of neural networks and machine learning. Mathematics will be fully explained.
