Combining Physics-Based and Data-Driven Modeling for Pressure Prediction in Well Construction

Oney Erge; Eric van Oort

This poster introduces a novel framework to combine the physics-based and data-driven modeling, aiming to attain the best features of both approaches for well construction. Gaussian processes, neural networks and deep learning models are trained and executed together with a physics model that is directly derived using the first principles. Then the results are combined through a decision-making algorithm, a hidden Markov model. The approach is tested within the scope of wellbore hydraulics on a dataset from an actual drilling operation. The results suggest the proposed approach has a good potential to allow safer, optimized drilling operations.
