Course description

Prospect Generation, Maturation and Risking

This practical, hands-on course is designed to enable attendees to enhance their skills of mapping and assessing prospects. This course teaches participants how to use play fairway mapping and petroleum system analysis to identify high potential plays and prospects, even in areas with sparse data. Once prospects are identified, the course teaches how to get map-derived, geologically based, objective inputs for prospect assessment and risking. This approach creates documented results that can be used to rank opportunities and make business decisions confidently.

Suitability - Who should attend?
