Probabilistic Method for Estimating Future Growth of Oil and Gas Reserves By Robert A. Crovelli and James W. Schmoker Introduction In the United States, the estimated size (cumulati ve produc­ tion plus remaining reserves) of oil and gas fields typically increases through time as fields are discovered, developed, and produced.

Oil and gas exploration is arguably the riskiest of all commercial activities. As a result, the utilization of probability and statistics in the oil and gas industry is becoming widely accepted as a method to estimate oil and gas exploration prospect size. Analysis typically utilizes the Monte Carlo simulation method and one of the commercial.

) Empirical methods of estimating reserves When performance trends have not been properly established with respect to oil and gas production, estimates of future production rate and proved reserves may be made by analogy to older reservoirs in the same geographic area that have similar characteristics and already established performance trends.

A probabilistic model for oil exploration can be developed by assessing the conditional relationship between perceived geologic variables and the subsequent discovery of petroleum.

Such a model includes two probabilistic components, the first reflecting the association between a geologic condition (structural closure, for example) and the occurrence of oil, and the second reflecting the.

is dependent on them being consistent with the purpose of the reserve estimate, appropriate contract obligations, corporate procedures, and government regulations involved in reporting the reserves.

probabilistic methods. ()=pdf.). Estimating volumes of reserves and resources to provide a “book value” (total assets of a company) is mandatory for any publicly listed oil and gas firm. The primary objective of this process is to arrive at a consistent volume and associated value assessment for companies, investors, lenders, and.

A hypothetical gas reservoir demonstrates some of the problems inherent in probabilistic methods. Table 1 lists the Probabilistic method for estimating future growth of oil and gas reserves book parameters required to calculate reserves with a probabilistic method.

Defining and modeling trends in these historical data and extrapolating these trends into the future to estimate some aspect of the remaining resources form the core in these methods. Simple decline rate models (e.g. exponential, hyperbolic) are sometimes used to describe exploration success and total resources (Dolton et al., ).

of the volumetric contribution of reserve growth to the future supply of oil and natural gas. Understanding past methods of estimating future volumes based on the data assembly meth-ods that have been used can lead to a better understanding of their applicability. The statistical nature of past methods.

Figure 1: Magnitude of uncertainty in reserves estimates The oil and gas reserves estimation methods can be grouped into the following categories: 1. Analogy, 2. Volumetric, 3. Decline analysis, 4.

Material balance calculations for oil reservoirs, 5. Material balance calculations for gas reservoirs, 6. Reservoir simulation. If probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 90% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the estimate.

1 The 90% probability volume is commonly. He was elected a Distinguished Member of SPE in Chap has written papers and/or made presentations on waterflooding, PVT behavior, improved oil recovery, gas reservoir performance, basic and advanced reservoir engineering, probabilistic methods, and reserves estimation.

The volumetric method and decline curve analysis are the two popular methods for estimating oil and gas reserves in the industry.

The volumetric method is based on static data only, while decline curve analysis is appropriate where the rate decline trend of individual wells or. Methods of Estimating Oil and Gas Resources' DAVID A. WHITE and HARRY M. GEHMAN2 Abatraet Assessment of undiscovered oil and gas potentials can be made and presented in a probability format reflecting the inherent uncertainties and risks.

A cumulative probability curve shows the chances of oc­ currence of possible hydrocarbon volumes, the risk.

The method of estimation is called deterministic if a single best estimate of reserves is made based on known geological, engineering, and economic data. The method of estimation is called probabilistic when the known geological, engineering, and economic data are used to generate a range of estimates and their associated probabilities.

Volumetric methods are usually used in the early life of oil and gas reservoirs. Estimation of the resources/reserves requires geological, geophysical, and petro-physical data including reservoir.

deterministic or probabilistic methods: Deterministic: A single value assigned for each input parameter of the reserves calculations is used.

The appropriate value for each reserve category must be selected. The majority of reserves in Canada are estimated using this method. Probabilistic. Within the category of unproved reserves, probable reserves (referred to as 2P reserves when aggregated with proved reserves) have a 50% probability that reserve quantities will be higher than estimated and a 50% probability that the reserves quantities will be lower than estimated, in accordance with the engineering definition of the American.

Gas Resource Adequacy n “Proved” oil (and gas) reserves are the basis for oil company valuations and future oil production forecasts. n The science of estimating reserves has been known for 70 years. – Original oil in place (“OOIP”) must be estimated. – Amount of OOIP that is technically and economically recoverable is then.

Under the full cost method, oil companies can capitalize all of the operating expenses involved in searching for and producing new oil reserves. In other. This report describes an analytic method of applied probability analysis techniques germane to problems encountered in cost and schedule risk estimation.

By their very nature, estimates are uncertain projections of future events. Given that, we discuss the probabilistic nature of estimates and describe the mathematical problems encountered in.

The energy sector comprises of oil and gas, utilities, nuclear, coal, and alternative energy for most people, it's the exploration and production, drilling, and refining of oil and. The decline curve is a method for estimating reserves and predicting oil and gas production, based on expectations of how production will slow over time.

more Recoverable Reserves. Book • Browse book content (political, market, and transportation), technical uncertainty (geological and engineering), and economic uncertainty (future gas and oil prices, and development and operating costs). In this chapter we look at each of these, and also examine deterministic and probabilistic methods in reserves estimation.

An accurate estimation of oil and gas reserves is a key to the success of every field development, and this continues throughout the life of the field. There are several methods available for hydrocarbon reserves estimation and these are analogy, volumetric, decline analysis, material balance and reservoir simulation.

(iii) Reserves growth: The USGS applies to the whole world reserves growth factors based on US experience: of 6-fold growth over 50 years for on-shore fields, and 3-fold for off-shore fields. Reserves growth is also given a probability, and globally addsand Gb, respectively, to the estimates of ultimate reserves presented above.

We also discussed why estimating reserves is very important for a company/country. Later, we briefly reviewed the various methods used to estimated reserves and when each one will be suitable.

Lastly, a simple Monte Carlo simulation was performed on the volumetric method to determine the amount of uncertainty in oil reserves estimation. significant potential of reserves growth and future production. Tight gas sands, shale gas, tight/shale oil and coalbed methane reservoirs are currently being pursued for new development in the US.

These reservoirs are difficult to characterize and produce because of their ultra-low permeability. Methods of estimating reserves of crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids.

8 For details on the methodology of convolving a probabilistic cost and probabilistic schedule estimate for a JCL, refer to Book,and Garvey, 9 Construction, oil, and gas industries have been doing probabilistic resource analysis for some time. Probable Reserves: After an oil exploration firm conducts a seismic survey of a piece of land, it obtains the proven and probable reserves in that area.

Probable reserves are. Oil reserves denote the amount of crude oil that can be technically recovered at a cost that is financially feasible at the present price of oil. Hence reserves will change with the price, unlike oil resources, which include all oil that can be technically recovered at any es may be for a well, a reservoir, a field, a nation, or the world.

According to the Oil and Gas Financial Journal, “the primary determinants in assessing the true value of an oil and gas company are, at the time of valuation: 1) reserves, 2) level of production. 1 An appraiser will choose a method to estimate proved reserves tailored to the level of detail and quality of available data.

Production Decline, Material Balance (for crude oil) or Pressure Decline (for gas), and Reservoir Simulation are popular methods for reserve estimation These methods are of comparable accuracy and tend to. of reserves. Only crude oil and nonassociated natural gas that flows to a wellbore are assessed directly.

Associated/dissolved natural gas and natural gas liquids are assumed to grow by the same ratio. The overall trend for reserve growth is for higher values through time, owing to. Each of the elements impacting the profit of an oil and gas property—reserves, production rates, costs and wellhead prices, and interest rates—is a prediction made under uncertainty.

This fact alone means that "single-number estimates," which are deterministic projections, are usually inadequate for economic assessment of drilling ventures.estimating reserves in the WV Marcellus shale play. Type probabilistic decline curves were then generated to forecast Technically Recoverable Resources (TRR) at 20 years (TRR20) for the wells in both the liquid-rich and dry-gas regions.

Reserves and resources for the WV Marcellus shale play were estimated by performing Monte Carlo simulation.appraisals of oil and gas resources (Figure 1).

During the ’s and ’s, new statistical methods were applied using several risk estimation techniques such as: (1) lognormal risk resource distribution (Attanasi and Drew, ), (2) Pareto distribution applied to petroleum field-size data in a play (Crovelli, ) and (3) fractal normal.
