Who should attend?

Audience

    • Geoscientists, technical or non-technical managers interested in prospect assessment.

Level

  • Proficiency
  • This course provides a practical, comprehensive understanding of that part of the E&P value chain that deals with the technical evaluation of an exploration asset.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand prospect definition workflow and to estimate OHIP (Original Hydrocarbon In Place) estimation parameters,
  • understand risks and uncertainties related to OHIP calculation methods and to use related results accordingly,
  • review fundamental concepts of portfolio management and to learn how to define adapted exploration strategies.
Course Content

RISK ANALYSIS

1 day

  • Identification and assessment of risks and uncertainties related to:
