Fred Aminzadeh, a member of SMART  Technical Advisory Group is the lead author on a new book titled Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics for Energy Exploration and Production. This  book will help accelerate the energy transformation through offering a better understanding of artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytic (DA) concepts and help unleash AI-DA power for faster and more cost-effective exploration and production (E&P), involving subsurface characterization, carbon sequestration and reservoir monitoring.

The book covers fundamentals of different aspects of AI-DA such as:

  • Introduction to Modern Intelligent Data Analysis
  • Machine Learning and Human-Computer Interface
  • Artificial Neural Networks 
  • Fuzzy Logic
  • Integration of Conventional and Unconventional Methods
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Data Science and Big Data Analytics

It continues with chapters dedicated to AI-DA applications in different stages of E&P, including Exploration, Drilling, Reservoir Characterization, Production Forecasting, Production Optimization, Reservoir Engineering, Artificial Lift and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). A few examples of AI-DA  applied to geothermal energy extraction and carbon capture and utilization (CCU) are also highlighted. The book concludes with many future developments for AI-DA.
