We had a great year for groundbreaking work in image-based rock physics. Working with our collaborators, we applied our software platform I2S to take on some of the biggest challenges in the simulation of petrophysical properties of conventional and unconventional reservoir rocks. See below for a recap of our collaborations and work in 2019 and onward.
Continuing on our work in 2019, we are developing solutions for the following challenge areas. Reach out for more information.
DigiM has a new white paper on our approach of using machine learning to segment and quantify complex mineralogy and porosity. The paper, titled “Machine-Learning Methods in Image Processing and Analysis of Porous Materials,” is available for request.
Working with our collaborator Alan Byrnes from Whiting Petroleum Corporation, we published a new paper titled “Properties Upscaling in Porosity Systems with Under-resolved Features Using Image-Based Rock Physics.” Submit a request for the paper.
DigiM’s paper on the “Uncertainty Quantification in Image Segmentation for Image-Based Rock Physics in a Shaly Sandstone,” from the 2018 SCA Meeting, was published in Petrophysics in their “Best of SCA” volume. The paper highlights the identification of uncertainty quantification requirements in image processing, as well as a framework to assess differences between simulated and measured properties. You can read the abstract or request the paper.
DigiM was invited to speak at the SPWLA Special Interest Group (SIG) annual meeting on Petrophysical Data Driven Analytics. DigiM’s James Howard presented a talk titled "Machine-Learning Methods: Analysis of Rock Images and Beyond."
DigiM attended and exhibited at the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference in Denver, Colorado. At URTeC, Alan Byrnes of Whiting Petroleum presented a collaborative paper with DigiM titled, "Properties Upscaling in Porosity Systems with Under-resolved Features Using Image-Based Rock Physics." Read the abstract or request presentation.
We look forward to meeting you at these conferences in 2020:
