The course will cover the major aspects and essential elements to generate and evaluate play and prospect for hydrocarbon exploration. The course focuses on the recommended procedures to evaluate correctly the main geological risks and the opportunities, using real cases and standard procedures used in oil companies. Lessons will emphasize on risks, limits, typical problems and uncertainties of the play assessment, especially in quantifying geological risks, also in complex stratigraphic/structural settings. Economic analysis and assessment, aggregation and presentation of data and best practice will help participants to provide insights for managers.
Course Duration: 3 modules of max. 4 hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 1 module which will be no more than 4 hours in length with ample time for delegates to break for refreshments.
