Companies worldwide are seeking solutions for their digital transformation initiatives and face a make-vs-buy decision when it comes to their E&P software tools. This talk will show how the commercial, off-the-shelf Paradise AI workbench can be a robust and cost-effective component of the new digital infrastructure. Using a combination of machine learning (ML) and deep learning applications, geoscientists apply Paradise to extract greater insights from seismic and well data for these and other objectives:
- Identify and calibrate detailed stratigraphy
- Distinguish thin beds below conventional tuning
- Classify seismic facies
- Detect faults automatically
- Interpret Direct Hydrocarbon Indicators
- Reveal fracture trends in shale plays
- Estimate reserves/resources
The brief introduction includes single-slide use cases in different geologic settings to illustrate the general-purpose application of ‘AI’ technology. The summary also will provide some context to the other presentations available at the Geophysical Insights virtual booth.
