This 3-day course covers the major aspects and essential elements to generate and evaluate play and prospect for hydrocarbon exploration. This course offers a qualitative and quantitative play/prospect assessment procedure easy to apply and reply in any industrial context. It is mostly focused on the evaluation of geologic uncertainties and risks, and practical procedure to quantify opportunities in the exploration phase.
In this course the participants will act as an exploration company following a ready-made workflow based on a real case and will learn the procedures used in oil companies. Lessons will focus on risks, limits, typical problems and uncertainties of the play assessment, especially in quantifying geological risks. Economic analysis and assessment, aggregation and presentation of data and best practice will help participants to provide insights for managers.
