Global experts will share hard-won lessons on decision tree analysis, post mortem case studies, probabilistic analysis for conventional dry holes, privileged insights from global direct hydrocarbon indicators (DHIs), critical elements in look-alike analogs, and how corporate look-backs reinforce the importance of maintaining and regenerating healthy prospect inventories. The goal of this session is to help explorers improve their success rate through illustrative methodologies and examples.

Speakers:

  • Decision Tree to Determine the Key Failure Mode for Segments in Conventional Petroleum Prospects: A.V. Milkov, J.M. Samis
  • Probabilistic Failure Analysis for Conventional Dry Holes: M. Morris
  • Lessons from Global Direct Hydrocarbon Indicators (DHIs): H. Pettingill
  • Basin Neighbors: Why One Succeeds While the Look-Alike Next Door Fails?: J. Dribus
