What is it about?

This paper proposes an artificial intelligence-based methodology to identify hydraulic fracturing parameters. This methodology integrates artificial intelligence techniques to match borehole pressure curves. In this context, the genetic algorithm minimizes the error between the observed and the predicted data. Furthermore, the multilayer perceptron (a feedforward neural network) is adopted to build a proxy model

Why is it important?

Predicting the behavior of petroleum reservoirs is challenging and includes, as a crucial step, determining its geomechanical parameters


We aim to contribute to the estimation of geomechanical parameters for problems related to the petroleum industry based on an efficient approach
