Deconvoluting Mixed Petroleum and the Effect of Oil and Gas-Condensate Mixes on Identifying Petroleum Systems – AAPG ACE 2020

Virtual talk at AAPG ACE 2020

Watch recent virtual talk by Ken Peters at AAPG ACE on using Pirouette’s unmixing algorithm for evaluating oil production.

 

 

Two points made in the talk are:

  • You cannot use ratios as the input variables and need to use concentrations instead.
  • The alternating least squares algorithm performs well to untangle mixed sources accurately.
