Massive Database Generation for 2.5D Borehole Electromagnetic Measurements using Refined Isogeometric Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Borehole resistivity measurements are routinely inverted in real-time during geosteering operations. The inversion process can be efficiently performed with the help of advanced artificial intelligence algorithms such as deep learning. These methods require a massive dataset that relates multiple Earth models with the corresponding borehole resistivity measurements. In here, we propose to use an advanced numerical method —refined isogeometric analysis (rIGA)— to perform rapid and accurate 2.5D simulations and generate databases when considering arbitrary 2D Earth models. Numerical results show that we can generate a meaningful synthetic database composed of 100,000 Earth models with the corresponding measurements in 56 hours using a workstation equipped with two CPUs.
