Verdazo Analytics expands Machine Learning Division

November 26, 2018 by

Verdazo Analytics added five full-time staff to its team in November in an expansion of its Machine Learning Division.

Since launching the division in January 2018, Verdazo Analytics has delivered consulting services to clients and producers, and in partnership with other industry-leading consulting firms. The company has helped the Oil & Gas industry understand and realize the practical benefits offered by Machine Learning in the areas of production performance prediction and completion optimization.

The expanded team joins Tyler Schlosser, the company’s Senior Technical Advisor for Machine Learning and Reservoir Engineering. Together, they’ll work on developing Verdazo Analytics’ forthcoming Machine Learning software and helping clients understand and adopt machine learning technologies and methodologies.

“A larger, diverse team allows us to respond to the growing interest in leveraging complex datasets to produce valuable insights that contribute to the bottom line” says Verdazo Analytics President Bertrand Groulx. “The success we have enjoyed in our most recent consulting projects has allowed us to craft our technology and processes to extract insights from a broader collection of data.”

The new staff bring extensive experience and education across geophysics, geomechanics, reservoir engineering, completions design, drilling, infill programs, enhanced recovery, economics, math, physics and software engineering. Many of the new team members also have recent experience using machine learning techniques to tackle some of the most complex problems at major producers.

“Our team has domain expertise, knowledge of Oil & Gas data sources, and deep machine learning expertise,” says Groulx. “This combined skillset is compelling on its own, but when you empower the team with the VERDAZO visual analytics software platform for data integration and visualization – that’s when things really get interesting.”
