About Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is used in all fields. Kuang et al. described the applications of artificial intelligence in the field of oil development in the academic journal “Petroleum Exploration and Development”. The outline of the article is as follows.
According to the actual demands of petroleum exploration and development, this paper describes the research progress and application of artificial intelligence technology in the field of petroleum exploration and development and discusses the applications and development directions of artificial intelligence technology in the future. Machine learning technology has preliminary application in lithology identification, logging curve reconstruction, reservoir parameter prediction, and other logging processing and interpretation, and has shown great potential. Computer vision is effective in the seismic first breaks picking, fault identification, and other seismic processing and interpretation. Deep learning and optimization technology has been applied to reservoir engineering and realized the real-time optimization of waterflooding development and prediction of oil and gas field production. The application of data mining in drilling and completion, surface engineering, and other fields has formed intelligent equipment and integrated software. The potential development directions of artificial intelligence in the field of petroleum exploration and development are intelligent production equipment, automatic processing interpretation, and professional software platform. The focus of development is digital basin, fast intelligent imaging logging tool, intelligent node seismic acquisition system, intelligent rotary steering drilling, intelligent fracturing technology and equipment, real-time monitoring, and control engineering of separate layer injection and production.
