Global optimization of grey-box computational systems using surrogate functions and application to highly constrained oil-field operations

Computers & Chemical Engineering 2018

B. Beykal F. Boukouvala C.A. Floudas N. Sorek H. Zalavadia E. Gildin

This work presents recent advances within the AlgoRithms for Global Optimization of coNstrAined grey-box compUTational problems (ARGONAUT) framework, developed for optimization of systems which lack analytical forms and derivatives. A new parallel version of ARGONAUT (p-ARGONAUT) is introduced to solve…

Dimensionality reduction for production optimization using polynomial approximations

Computational Geosciences 2017

B. Beykal C.A. Floudas F. Boukouvala E. Gildin N. Sorek

The objective of this paper is to introduce a novel paradigm to reduce the computational effort in waterflooding global optimization problems while realizing smooth well control trajectories amenable for practical deployments in the field. In order to overcome the problems…
