This course investigates the classification and categorisation of resources within both the SEC and the SPE-PRMS systems. Using case studies, the course rigorously studies the boundaries between class and category when assessing resources for management and financial disclosure. The resource estimation toolkit, using volumetric, decline curve, material balance and reservoir simulation, methods is described. Practical exercises and illustrations of the pitfalls and issues in resource categorisation are illustrated by examples.
Course Structure: 3 modules of 3 hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 1 module which will be no more than 3 hours in length with multiple breaks.
