Expert systems for well completion using Bayesian probabilities, and a packers consequence node dependent on wellbore fluids, hydrocarbon types, completion fluids, packers decision, and treatment fluids nodes Patent uri icon


  • Systems and methods are provided for expert systems for well completion using Bayesian decision networks to determine well completion recommendations. The well completion expert system includes a well completion Bayesian decision network (BDN) model that receives inputs and outputs recommendations based on Bayesian probability determinations. The well completion BDN model includes a treatment fluids section, a packer section, a junction classification section, a perforation section, a lateral completion section, and an open hole gravel packing section.
