2018 SEG Beijing Workshop: Maximizing asset value through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

17-19 September 2018 | Beijing, China


17-19 September 2018
Beijing, China

During the last two decades, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have become deeply embedded in and impacted many industries such as finance, retail, communications, and oil & gas.  Specifically, the oil & gas industry has experienced a digital transformation initiated by recent advancements in AI and ML. In the low commodity price environment, increasing efficiency, reducing cost, and maximizing asset value have become the top priority for many oil & gas companies. By gathering large volumes of information and translating those into actionable insights, AI & ML have enabled new opportunities and business models in the exploration & production (E&P) lifecycle for the industry. Current adoption of AI & ML in the E&P lifecycle finds its application in several areas including seismic processing and interpretation, reservoir characterization, drilling, completion, and production forecast.

This workshop will highlight new ideas that arose during the oil & gas digital transformation enabled by AI and ML. It will explore the challenges, opportunities, and trends of AI and ML adoption in the E&P business.

Specialists from oil & gas and technology companies and researchers from universities and institutions will come together to exchange new ideas related to the latest adoption of AI & ML in the E&P business. Case studies and active panel discussions will enable participants to set up new industry benchmarks.

We look forward to your participation and contribution.

We invite abstracts for the following topics:

  • Applications in geophysics and geoscience
  • Applications in reservoir characterization and performance prediction
  • Applications in drilling and completion
  • Applications in production surveillance and optimization         
  • Expectations and future trends
