Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm, second version (NSGA-II) is used as a stochastic optimization technique successfully in different engineering applications. In this study, a data-driven optimization strategy based upon evolutionary neural network algorithm (EvoNN) is developed for providing input into NSGA-II optimization. Evolutionary neural-network data-driven model is built and trained using initial solutions generated by NSGA-II optimization coupled with the reservoir simulation model. Evolutionary optimization incorporated in the EvoNN strategy is applied in the trained data-driven model to generate the Pareto optimal solution, which is then used as a guiding input into NSGA-II optimization. The described method is applied in two case studies (i.e. Brugge field model & water injection pattern model). The Pareto optimal solutions obtained with data-driven model guided NSGA-II in both models show improvement in convergence and diversity of the solution. The convergence to the Pareto optimal solution has improved by 9% for case-1 (i.e. Brugge field) and by 43% for case-2 (i.e. water injection pattern model). In addition, the Pareto optimal solution obtained by the proposed hybridization has shown improvement in the water oil ratio (WOR) up to 6% in the Brugge field and up to 97% in the water injection pattern model. This improvement can lead to wide applications in using evolutionary optimizations in real field simulation models at acceptable computation time.
