ARCO has had many technical successes in the use of Genetic Algorithms and related technologies
The modified bit climber with memory has worked well in most, but not all, of the applications we’ve tried at ARCO: material balance, gaslift optimization (except one) and seismic multiple suppression.
ARCO will no longer exist, per se, after this year. The new name: BP Amoco
Could these events be related…nahhhhh!
