Bertrand Groulx presenting machine learning case study at SPE workshop

Verdazo Analytics President Bertrand Groulx will present a machine learning case study at the Society for Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Subsurface Data Analytics workshop on February 27, 2019 at The Bow in Calgary. The case study utilizes GLJ Petroleum Consultants’ Spirit River regional geologic study and incorporates both geoscience and engineering data to characterize which geological, reservoir and completion data contribute most significantly to well production performance. John Hirschmiller of GLJ will join Groulx for the presentation. As part of the presentation, Groulx will outline how machine learning models provide objective, analytical means to interpret large, complex datasets. The presentation will provide interested parties with practical applications of machine learning, particularly for assessing the commercial viability of resource development, optimizing completion designs and informing reserves evaluations. Groulx’s presentation takes place from 8:00-9:30 a.m on February 27th. The SPE workshop takes place February 26-27 at The Bow in Calgary. To register or for more information, click here.
