Intelligent Reservoir Characterization

Since the early 1990s Intelligent Solutions,Inc. has been focused on promoting intelligent technologies in the oil and gas industry by developing state of the art solutions and tackling important and challenging problems. This is evident from more than 100 technical articles that we have contributed to the art and science of application of AI&DM in the exploration and production industry.

Intelligent Reservoir Characterization

ISI's has been a pioneer in application of AI&DM to reservoir characterization. We started this process in early 1990s. ISI has a significant number of publications that is dedicated to this topic. Our intelligent models for reproducing results of core analyses from well logs and other available geological data and interpretations have been extended from sandstone formations to complex carbonates and recently to shale plays.

ISI's technology on application of AI&DM to reservoir characterization can help engineers and scientists to successfully populate static models for reservoir simulation studies. Our technology, unlike some of the canned routines in popular geological modeling software applications that are trying to surf the waves that have been created by genuine AI developers such as ISI, provide tools to validate the results of the intelligent modeling technology. Unfortunately, reservoir characterization using AI technology has been an early victim of the marketing ability of those that have a limited understanding of the technology.

Another unique workflow that has been developed by ISI is the use of SCAL data in conjunction with wireline logs and geological information to develop models for Rock Types. Correlating the Rock Types to wireline logs and eventually to seismic data provides a powerful tool for developing a comprehensive static model of the complex reservoirs.

ISI's software product for Intelligent Reservoir Characterization will soon be released. This product that is called IMpress™ will include all the workflows that has been developed by ISI on this topic over the years.
