In this talk, various pertinent predicting parameters are presented. Integrated various data-mining algorithms (clustering,modelreduction) is given. In SAGD data-mining the priorities are set such that PCA prior to k-means. Great potential of data-driven modeling to be integrated directly into most existing reservoir management and decision-making routines is shown.
