Neuro-simulation, which conjoins hard computing protocols with soft computing protocols, has been adapted to various applications in petroleum industry. This approach offers the advantage of optimizing number of model/simulation studies that need to be conducted. Simulation/ model studies, in this context, refer to various modes of operations through which data are collected and results generated. Thus, experimental protocols followed in laboratories, field tests and operations conducted, and analyses carried using numerical and/or mathematical models are all considered as components of these studies. In this paper, an example implementation of neuro-simulation in the optimization of number of experiments that need to be conducted in measuring relative permeabilities is illustrated.
