BOAST-NFR

BOAST-NFR: BOAST-NFR is a reservoir simulation tool based on BOAST (Black Oil Applied Simulation Tool) and it is a modified version of BOAST-VHS program code. Therefore, BOAST-NFR also allows specification of any combination of horizontal, slanted, and vertical wells in the reservoir. BOAST-NFR program was designed to be used in Windows environment. Input and output data are written in MS EXCEL spreadsheets while the main computer code executes subroutines in Visual Basic (VB). The user's guide gives a detailed explanation about the input data required for running BOAST-NFR, a black-oil reservoir simulator for naturally fractured formations using a dual-porosity, dual-permeability model. The program was prepared by Dr. Michael Wiggins (Principal Investigator), Jose G. Almengor, Gherson Penuela, Raymon L. Brown, Faruk Civan, and Richard G. Hughes of the Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering, The University of Oklahoma under the DOE contract (DE-AC26-99BC15212). User’s Guide. Min. Req.

RISK ANALYSIS AND DECISION MAKING SOFTWARE

MONTE CARLO SIMULATION SOFTWARE

Monte Carlo Simulation Software: A Monte Carlo simulation is used to solve certain stochastic (involving a random variable) problems where the passage of time plays no substantive role. It is widely used to solve certain statistical problems that are not analytically tractable. The simulation requires that a mathematical relationship (model) be established between the event outcome (expectation) and influence factors (input variables).

Monte Carlo Risk Analysis is the "method of choice" for mathematical modeling where:

- The Input Data has Uncertainties;
- The "answer", or Output, must accurately represent the Input Data;
- The calculated uncertainty in the "answer", or Output, must accurately reflect the Uncertainty in the Input data; and
- The calculated uncertainty in the "answer", or Output, must be an accurate measure of the validity of the model.

The application is a 32-bit MS Windows application. It contains a help system with an example and background information on Monte Carlo Simulations.

NEURO3 - NEURAL NETWORK SOFTWARE

Neuro3 - Neural Network Software: Neural networks are systems that are constructed to use some organizational principles resembling those of the human brain. They are information-processing systems that demonstrate the ability to learn, recall, and generalize from training patterns or data. They are good at tasks such as pattern matching and classification, data clustering, and forecasting. Common oil and gas applications include forecasting of reservoir properties from wireline log signatures, extension of reservoir properties for simulation, and seismic interpretation. While this application was written for the oil and gas community, it is generic enough to apply to any problem for data-mining, correlation, or categorization needs.

The application is a 32-bit MS Windows application. It contains an extensive help system with a tutorial and background information on neural networks. The application also has a spreadsheet interface to allow import and export of external data sets.

TREE 2000 - DECISION TREE SOFTWARE

TREE2000 - Decision Tree Software: Decision tree software embodies a highly customizable tool for risk management and informed decision making. Variables such as price, production, and operating costs contain unknowns that must be accounted for when looking at the value of a given decision or project. Decision tree software allows you to apply all the information you have on various unknowns and give you the 'big picture' of the situation, showing how that information affects your future and current choices. This assistance will illustrate possible outcomes of decisions and better inform you of where to invest effort in reducing uncertainties.

The application is a 32-bit MS Windows application. It contains a help system with an example and background information on decision tree construction.

FUZZY EXPERT EXPLORATION TOOL

Fuzzy Expert Exploration Tool - Incomplete or sparse information on types of data such as geologic or formation characteristics introduces a high level of risk for oil exploration and development projects. "Expert" systems developed and used in several disciplines and industries have demonstrated beneficial results. A state-of-the-art exploration "expert" tool, relying on a computerized database and computer maps generated by neural networks, is being developed through the use of "fuzzy" logic, a relatively new mathematical treatment of imprecise or non-explicit parameters and values. Oil prospecting risk can be reduced with the use of a properly developed and validated "Fuzzy Expert Exploration (FEE) Tool."

The Fuzzy Expert Exploration Tool will eventually be generalized so that users in any part of the world will be able to add their own knowledge and data and make rapid evaluations of a large number of potential drilling sites in a systematic and consistent manner via the internet. Below are links to install standalone systems for the Delaware Basin specific FEE Tool and the Devonian specific FEE Tool.
