Texas A&M Reinforcement Learning Algorithm Automates Oil and Gas Reserve Forecasting

Mar 1, 2021 |

Oil and gas extraction is a messy business, not least because much of the initial discovery process relies on educated guesswork that often proves fruitless. O&G companies are always searching for ways to reduce these false positives and thereby the costs of their discovery operations – and now, a team of researchers at Texas A&M University have produced a new algorithm that automates prediction of oil and gas reserves.
