The standard real-time pore pressure modeling workflow contains several steps of human interaction, e.g. drawing and adjusting shale and normal compaction trend lines, and also manual picking of a final pore pressure curve. This introduces a subjective component to the modelling procedure and the result will very likely depend on the skills and experience of the analyst. In the frame of a case study, we present how automation of the pore pressure modelling workflow can be approached to support the real-time analysts. The results from the algorithms are compared with a standard pore pressure analysis. This can be important in a real-time analysis when a project is shared by several analysts who work on shifts or when several experts share the analysis (such as in remote operations). In this context, automation does not necessarily stand for a fully autonomous system in which the user plays no or only a supportive role. Automation of single functions or part of the workflow shall support the analyst, who is still requested to confirm or reject proposed information and solutions.
