Machine Learning and Data Science in the Oil and Gas Industry: Best Practices, Tools, and Case Studies explains critical facets around machine learning that are specifically tailored to oil and gas. Practical in its approach, this reference provides a chapter devoted to the early career engineer that is just starting in the industry. It then builds to a full-scale project that is supported by real-world case studies from various industry and academic contributors. Lessons learned and technology drivers are also discussed, creating a path for future engineers to apply.

Rounding out with a glossary, this book delivers a reference that cuts through the hype to help today's petroleum engineers understand machine learning and where it can benefit their operations.
