Drilling Simulation and Risk Assessment of the IDDP-2 Geothermal Well in Iceland

The Reykjanes reservoir, lying in a volcanic environment in Iceland, is assumed to contain supercritical fluids, whose energy content is about ten times higher than conventional geothermal systems. Drilling a well in this environment has to cope with very high temperature and pressure as well as an intensely fractured subsurface. A detailed well design can help minimize the likelihood of drilling and completion problems that could compromise the success of the project.

Mitigation of Geothermal Induced Seismicity Through Data Integration and 3D Geomodeling in a Cloud-Hosted Environment

Geothermal energy is a key resource for providing clean, reliable and sustainable energy. Induced seismicity events, with magnitudes large enough to be felt by local communities and impact surface infrastructures, are an undesirable potential result of geothermal operations, and significantly impact social acceptance. Mitigating adverse effects is of upmost importance if one wishes to increase the number of safe, sustainable geothermal projects.

Unsupervised Machine Learning for Seismic Facies Classification Applied in Presalt Carbonate Reservoirs of the Búzios Field, Brazil

Seismic data can provide useful information for prospect identification and reservoir characterization. Combining seismic attributes helps identify different patterns, for improved geological characterization. Machine learning applied to seismic interpretation is very useful in assisting with data classification limitations.

Hybrid Approach in Velocity Model Building: A Case Study from Western Offshore Basin, India

In depth imaging, depth calibration using well-tie updated velocity is generally applied to poststack data. This is the most correct type of depth calibration as it positions structures in their proper places.

Anisotropic Full-Azimuth Velocity Model Building Using Joint Reflection-Refraction Tomography

One of the main challenges in seismic imaging, especially of land data, is building the near surface velocity model, as it is normally characterized by very low velocity values with different types of local anomalies. Resolving the near surface velocity model using only refraction data is insufficient, as it does not provide the required lateral resolution. Using only reflection data is equally insufficient, as it does not provide the required vertical resolution.

Digital Twins: The Accelerated Path to Autonomous Operations

The concept of digital twins has been around since 1960s, but the term was first introduced nearly a decade ago by NASA's John Vickers. Until very recently, adoption of digital twins has been inconsistent, but acceptance looks to be accelerating with recent market shifts. Today’s users are seeing exponential benefits by deploying multiple digital twins across sites. The next wave of digitalization innovations, powered by digital twins and AI, is creating new levels of agility and flexibility, paving the way to autonomous operations.
