... a comparative analysis between ANN and SVM models as tools for predicting sand production. Analysis of the Niger Delta data set indicated that SVM outperformed ANN model even when the training data set is sparse. Using the 30% test set, ANN gives an accuracy, precision, recall, and F1 - Score of about 80% while...

The numerical simulations predicted local rock failure for the weakest rock in the envisaged drawdown and depletion scenario. Sand production experienced from the Fensfjord Formation supports this conclusion...
