Title and Bio:
"A Learning-based Data-driven Forecast Approach for Predicting Reservoir Future Performance" - Hoonyoung Jeong (Seoul National University)
Hoonyoung Jeong is an assistant professor in Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Seoul National University since 2018. He received B.S. and M.S. in Civil, Urban, and Geosystems Engineering from Seoul National University, Ph.D. in Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering from University of Texas at Austin. Before working for Seoul National University, he worked for Korea National Oil Corporation as a reservoir engineer from 2009 to 2011, Bureau of Economic Geology at University of Texas at Austin as a postdoctoral fellow from 2016 to 2018. His primary research focuses on fast assessment of reservoir performance, geostatistics, history matching, optimization of well placement and controls, reservoir modeling, data science for geoscience, geological CO2 storage, and nuclear waste disposal.
"Application of Convolutional Neural Networks for Infill Location Determination" - Baehyun Min (Ewha Womans University)
Baehyun Min is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Climate and Energy Systems Engineering at Ewha Womans University, where he has been since 2017. He is also a joint faculty professor in the Interdisciplinary Program of Social Economy at Ewha Womans University since September 2019. He received B.S. and M.S. in Civil, Urban & Geosystems Engineering from Seoul National University in 2005 and 2007, respectively, and Ph.D. in Energy Systems Engineering from Seoul National University in 2013. From 2013 to 2014, he worked at the Research Institute of Energy and Resources at Seoul National University as Postdoctoral Fellow. From 2014 to 2017, he worked at the Department of Petroleum & Geosystems Engineering and Center for Subsurface Modeling at the University of Texas at Austin as Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Associate.His research interests span petroleum engineering, carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration, and system optimization. Much of his works have been on improving the understanding, design, and performance of reservoir characterization, history matching, and production maximization, mainly through the application of geostatistics, evolutionary algorithms, and data-driven technologies. As of August 2019, he has published 22 research articles and presented 52 technical presentations.
