One of the leading challenges in hydrocarbon exploration and production is predicting rock types and fluid content distribution throughout the reservoir away from the boreholes.  In this presentation, we will demonstrate the application of a neural network-based machine learning methodology called Democratic Neural Network Association (DNNA) to the problem of finding oil-filled packstones in the Middle Wolfcamp, Eastern Shelf of the
