As more and more types of geophysical measurements informing about different characteristics of subsurface formations are available, effectively synergizing the information from these measurements becomes critical to enhance deep reservoir characterization, determine interwell fluid distribution and ultimately maximize oil recovery. In this study, we develop a feature-based model calibration workflow by combining the power of ensemble methods in data integration and deep learning techniques in feature segmentation. The performance of the developed workflow is demonstrated with a synthetic channelized reservoir model, in which crosswell seismic and electromagnetic (EM) data are jointly inverted.
