Neural networks predict well inflow performance
MetadataShow full item record
Predicting well inflow performance relationship accurately is very important for production engineers. From these predictions, future plans for handling and improving well performance can be established. One method of predicting well inflow performance is to use artificial neural networks. Vogel's reference curve, which is produced from a series of simulation runs for a reservoir model proposed by Weller, is typically used to predict inflow performance relationship for solution-gas-drive reservoirs. In this study, I reproduced Vogel's work, but instead of producing one curve by conventional regression, I built three neural network models. Two models predict the IPR efficiently with higher overall accuracy than Vogel's reference curve.
