about

Applied Statistical Modeling and Data Analytics: A Practical Guide for the Petroleum Geosciencesprovides a practical guide to many of the classical and modern statistical techniques that have become established for oil and gas professionals in recent years. It serves as a "how to" reference volume for the practicing petroleum engineer or geoscientist interested in applying statistical methods in formation evaluation, reservoir characterization, reservoir modeling and management, and uncertainty quantification.

Beginning with a foundational discussion of exploratory data analysis, probability distributions and linear regression modeling, the book focuses on fundamentals and practical examples of such key topics as multivariate analysis, uncertainty quantification, data-driven modeling, and experimental design and response surface analysis. Data sets from the petroleum geosciences are extensively used to demonstrate the applicability of these techniques. The book will also be useful for professionals dealing with subsurface flow problems in hydrogeology, geologic carbon sequestration, and nuclear waste disposal.



  • Authored by internationally renowned experts in developing and applying statistical methods for oil & gas and other subsurface problem domains
  • Written by practitioners for practitioners
  • Presents an easy to follow narrative which progresses from simple concepts to more challenging ones
  • Includes online resources with software applications and practical examples for the most relevant and popular statistical methods, using data sets from the petroleum geosciences
  • Addresses the theory and practice of statistical modeling and data analytics from the perspective of petroleum geoscience applications
Dr. Srikanta Mishra is Institute Fellow and Chief Scientist (Energy) at Battelle Memorial Institute, where he leads computational modeling and data analytics activities for geologic carbon storage, shale gas and oil development, and improved oil recovery projects. He joined Battelle in 2010 after a distinguished 20+ year career in geos...
