Mining Association Rules from Tucker SAGD Database


Tucker project is Husky Energy’s first major project in the Alberta’s oil sands and it uses the Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) oil recovery technology. Large amount of geological, operational, drilling and testing data has been collected for over 5 years in Tucker project, which contains implicit knowledge to improve the oil production. The first part of this study will focus on analyzing the geological and well placement data to identify key factors influencing the oil production. The second part is to find patterns from historical injection-production data what operational conditions will result a high oil production. Results from the proposed study may help Husky Energy save the production cost of the Tucker project and enhance the well placement in the future drilling projects.
