The variability of soil is well known to affect the geotechnical performance of structures. As probabilistic design methods become more commonly used, the ability to measure the variability of soil becomes more important. However, by using only the point statistics of soil parameters in design (e.g. the mean and standard deviation), typically an...

This ‘white paper’ proposes to develop a data-informed operational system to forecast induced seismicity, and the associated seismic hazard in the Groningen natural gas field. The goals of developing and maintaining such an Operational Earthquake Forecasting System (OEFS) are 1) to provide a unified environment to test and align research efforts...

We study fast and robust iterative solvers for large systems of linear equations resulting from simulation of flow trough strongly heterogeneous porous media. We propose the use of preconditioning and deflation techniques, based on information obtained frfrom the system, to reduce the time spent in the solution of the linear system.An important...

The Random Finite Element Method (RFEM) has been shown in many theoretical publications to offer advantages in the quantification of the probability of failure. However, it has rarely been applied in real situations (geometry, material properties, soil layers) and seldom, if at all, to a well instrumented geotechnical failure. This paper reports...

The paper investigates the stability of slopes with spatially variable and cross-correlated shear strength parameters in 3D. The influence of various cross-correlation coefficients between these parameters on the probability of 3D slope failure has been considered for different levels of anisotropy of the heterogeneity in the shear strength....

This paper investigates embankment reliability based on the ultimate limit state (ULS). The ULS is generally not clearly defined and, especially for flood defences, the ULS is currently under discussion. According to Dutch law [1], flooding which leads to either casualties or substantial financial damage is considered as the ultimate limit state...

Over the past decade, a steep increase in the number of seismic events has been observed in the Groningen gas field, the Netherlands. It is generally accepted that these are induced by compaction of the reservoir rock due to extensive depletion, causing a buildup of strain energy in faults that may be released seismically. We address the...

Improbable slope failure is addressed in the framework of reliability analysis of slopes in heterogeneous cohesive soils, as the small subset of realisations that fail without additional measures to trigger failure. The mode of these slope failures, located at the weak tail of the reliability curve, is demonstrated to differ significantly...

In reservoir engineering, it is attractive to characterize the difference between reservoir models in metrics that relate to the economic performance of the reservoir as well as to the underlying geological structure. In this paper, we develop a dissimilarity measure that is based on reservoir flow patterns under a particular operational...

Model-based dynamic optimization of the water-flooding process in oil reservoirs is a computationally complex problem and suffers from high levels of uncertainty. A traditional way of quantifying uncertainty in robust water-flooding optimization is by considering an ensemble of uncertain model realizations. These models are generally not...

Advanced data acquisition and process modelling technology provide ‘real-time’ data and decision support capacity for different aspects of the resource extraction process. Closed-loop approaches have recently been applied to utilize information extracted from these data in combination with advanced computing technology for improved production...

Further research into seismicity caused by natural gas production from the Groningen field is necessary to improve the assessment of seismic risk and develop means to control and reduce it. Research into subsurface aspects is primarily of relevance to assess the seismic hazard component in the cause-and-effect chain that governs the seismic risk...

A new method for continuous observation of aerosol–cloud interactions with ground-based remote sensing instruments is presented. The main goal of this method is to enable the monitoring of the change of the cloud droplet size due to the change in the aerosol concentration. We use high-resolution measurements from a lidar, a radar and a...

LIBS was applied to 19 Au-Ag ore samples to investigate if this technique can be used to distinguish between economic and sub-economic ore either by direct detection of these elements or by using other elements as indicators. However, the Au and Ag grades of the samples are below the detection limit of the LIBS setup that was used. Furthermore,...

We present a method to determine lower and upper bounds to the predicted production or any other economic objective from history-matched reservoir models. The method consists of two steps: 1) performing a traditional computer-assisted history match of a reservoir model with the objective to minimize the mismatch between predicted and observed...

Conflicting objectives are frequently encountered in most real-world problems. When dealing with conflicting objectives, decision makers prefer to obtain a range of possible optimal solutions from which to choose. In theory, methods exists that can produce a range of possible solutions, some of which are “Pareto Optimal”. The application of...

Gravel pit lakes form when gravel is excavated from below the water table of a phreatic or shallow confined aquifer. Typically many of these lakes are concentrated along naturally occurring sedimentary gravel deposits in areas where gravel is needed for construction. Most gravel pit lakes are relatively young features: most are less than 50...
