SPE Workshop: Merging Data-Driven and Physics-Based Models for Enhanced Reservoir Insights and Predictions 19 - 20 Nov 2019 Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort San Antonio, Texas, USA

About the Workshop 

​​Reservoir performance predictions and optimization of field development have traditionally relied on computationally expensive physics-based models for flow and transport in porous media. More recently, there is an increasing trend to use purely data-driven models based on big data and machine learning techniques. The goal here is to exploit the multitude of data sources to extract intelligence, improve operational efficiency and optimize reservoir performance.  In this workshop, we explore the opportunities presented by combining the data-driven models (data scientists) with physics-based models (domain experts), to provide a balanced and informed view of reservoir insights and create predictive and generalizable models while enforcing known physical constraints and addressing gaps in the data.

What is an SPE Workshop? 

Why Attend 

An SPE workshop is a multi-day event that fosters knowledge sharing in an intensive learning experience. It provides brief technical presentations followed by extensive Q&A and discussion. 

Staged in an intimate setting, an SPE workshop brings together E&P professionals with common roles and challenges to share ideas that advance both technology and best practices. They provide an environment for frank, open discussion. Press is not invited to attend. 

The workshop’s program committee members solicit presentations from top industry professionals. This ensures a robust technical program with presentations that are laser-focused on best practices, lessons learned, and case studies. 

What You Receive 

  • Released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the conclusion of the workshop. Speakers do not write formal papers and are not expected to release their presentations for publication. 
  • Attendees at this workshop qualify for 1.6 SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU). One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A permanent record of a participant's involvement and awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE. 

What You Won’t See 

In remaining consistent with workshop objectives and SPE guidelines, commercialism in presentations will not be permitted. Company logos should be used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter(s).
