Prospect Maturation and Evaluation, From a Lead to Drillable Prospect

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. It is mostly focused on the evaluation of geologic uncertainties and risks, and practical procedure to quantify opportunities in the exploration phase.
This course explains how risks and volumes can be assessed in a realistic manner, based on a sound understanding of the geological details of the prospect as well as of its regional geological setting and current play understanding.

At the end of the course the participants will have a good understanding of the essentials for realistic risk and volume assessments of exploration prospects.
