In China, Tahe Triassic oil field block 9 reservoir was discovered in 2002 by drilling wells S95 and S100. The distribution of the reservoir sand body is not clear. Therefore, it is necessary to study and to predict oil production from this oil field. In this study, we propose an improved Random Vector Functional Link (RVFL) network to predict oil production from Tahe oil field in China. The Spherical Search Optimizer (SSO) is applied to optimize the RVFL and to enhance its performance, where SSO works as a local search method that improved the parameters of the RVFL. We used a historical dataset of this oil field from 2002 to 2014 collected by a local partner. Our proposed model, called SSO-RVFL, has been evaluated with extensive comparisons to several optimization methods. The outcomes showed that, SSO-RVFL achieved accurate predictions and the SSO outperformed several optimization methods.
