Abstract:

THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL SEEK TO ADVANCE SEARCH THEORY TO APPLY MORE DIRECTLY TO PROBLEMS IN PETROLEUM EXPLORATION.STOCHASTIC MODELS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO REPRESENT SUBSURFACE STRUCTURES AND OIL BEARING SANDS. THESE WILL BE COMBINED IN A BAYESIAN FRAMEWORK TO ALLOW PRIOR ESTIMATES OF DRILLINGSUCCESS TO BE UPDATED AS NEW INFORMATION IS OBTAINED FROM GEOPHYSICAL SENSORS AND FORM BORE HOLE DATA. THE APPLICATION OF THE WORK WILL BE TO IMPROVE THE ESTIMATION OF SUCCESS PROBABILITY IN DRILLING VENTURES. THIS SHOULD LEAD TO BETTER EXPLORATION DECISIONS IN COMPLEX SITUATIONS WHERE SPARSE GEOLOGICAL DATA MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO ESTIMATE THE SUBSURFACE STRUCTURE IN A DETERMINISTIC WAY.
