Well Production Prediction and Visualization Using Data Mining and Web GIS
Massive data sets have been accumulated in the oil and gas industry. As strategic assets, voluminous data of different data types should be leveraged and turned into information for agile and accurate decision-making. Three oil and gas data-related studies are covered in this thesis. Firstly, a data-driven model is proposed for predicting well production using time-series production data from analogous and adjacent wells. Secondly, interactive visualization tools are designed and implemented for oil and gas spatial and temporal datasets, following an “Overview first, zoom and filter, then details-on-demand” guideline (Shneiderman, 1996) in order to maximize information delivery in single displays. Thirdly, a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) application is designed and implemented for a Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) dataset to provide users convenient access to public and proprietary SAGD data, as well as some data analysis and visualization functions.
