Conventional machine learning methods are incapable of handling several hypotheses. This is the main strength of the ensemble learning paradigm. The petroleum industry is in great need of this new learning methodology due to the persistent quest for better prediction accuracies of reservoir properties for improved exploration and production activities. This paper proposes an ensemble model of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) that incorporates various expert opinions on the optimal number of hidden neurons in the prediction of petroleum reservoir properties. The performance of the ensemble model was evaluated using standard decision rules and compared with those of ANN-Ensemble with the conventional Bootstrap Aggregation method and Random Forest. The results showed that the proposed method outperformed the others with the highest correlation coefficient and the least errors. The study also confirmed that ensemble models perform better than the average performance of individual base learners. This study demonstrated the great potential for the application of ensemble learning paradigm in petroleum reservoir characterization
