Exploring Careers in Sciences: Applied Mathematics in the Oilfield Industry


The search for oil and gas has three objectives: to identify and evaluate hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs; to bring hydrocarbons to the surface safely and cost-effectively, without harming the environment; and to maximize the yield from each discovery. The first part of the talk will focus on some areas of research in applied mathematics in Schlumberger. These areas include forward modeling and inversion, uncertainty analysis, telemetry, pattern recognition as well as signal and image processing.  The second part of the talk will focus on use of downhole nuclear magnetic resonance data to infer petro-physical
