Author Affiliations +
This paper discusses the design and implementation of PLAYMAKER: a knowledge base system for characterizing hydrocarbon plays. PLAYMAKER is a component of XX (eXpert eXplorer), a workstation-based tool that aids exploration geologists in a number of different tasks: sediment and carbonates simulation, play and field characterization, retrieval and storage of information in a geological database, comparison of play or field under study with other fields in the database, and report generation. PLAYMAKER is implemented using MIDST (Mixed Inferencing Dempster Shafer Tool), a rule-based expert system shell that incorporates mixed-iniative reasoning and inexact reasoning based on the Dempster-Shafer evidence combination scheme. This paper discusses the effectiveness of a two-level knowledge base structure adopted for the design and implementation of PLAYMAKER.
