  1. Can we trust the data-driven VFMs?

    Published April 23rd 2021, 06:08

    A data-driven VFM presents an estimate of the flow rate, but how certain is really the model about this value? In a study performed on data-driven VFM modeling, we spent some time digging into calibration plots to assess the quality of the models.

  2. Calibration plots - how confident is your model about itself?

    Published April 9th 2021, 01:09

    Calibration plots can be used to analyze probabilistic models. In short, the plot casts light upon how confident or uncertain a model is about its own predictions, and if we, as users of the model, can trust this uncertainty. Let us explain how.

  3. Traditional data-driven VFMs have inherent challenges that make them unsuitable for widespread use across O&G fields

    Published March 26th 2021, 02:00

    This post presents our findings from a comprehensive study of data-driven VFM modeling. We looked at model performance and generalization, the impact of more sophisticated modeling methods and the effect of data quality vs. quantity.

  6. Inspecting flow rate measurement accuracy with cumulative performance plots

    Published March 1st 2021, 01:44

    For those out there working with multiphase flow meters (MPFMs) or virtual flow meters (VFMs), the cumulative performance plot may be an easyread plot. Yet, when first introduced to the plot, it can confuse the best of us. Let us deep-dive into it.

  8. On the challenges of modeling data-driven virtual flow meters

    Published February 17th 2021, 12:30

    A cornerstone of ML applications is available data. Yet, in industrial applications the data may fail to suitably represent the underlying process behavior. We discuss some data challenges faced by data-driven VFMs.

  10. Why are we not seeing more data-driven VFMs in operation?

    Published February 3rd 2021, 10:27

    In time with improved instrumentation of petroleum assets and increasing amounts of data, the buzz around AI and Machine Learning reached the petroleum industry. Is there a reason why such solutions shouldn't kick-ass in production flow modeling?
