Applications of AI and Expert Systems to the Petroleum Industry: Oil and Gas Exploration, Production, Refining, ...

[T]he possible use of computing tools for automatic recognition of risk patterns in oil installation is of high value. Risk is always present in submarine, marine, land or underground installations, either at short, medium or long terms. Risks can come from natural forces like earthquakes, hurricanes or volcano eruptions; or due to illegal human settlements. The prevention of such risks could be made at low cost and high precision using intelligent systems able to process the large volume of data with the required accuracy and efficiency. The economic savings and the decrease of risks to humans is possible using such information management tools.
