About this Training Course 

The prospect maturation process, from a lead to a drillable prospect, is at the heart of the exploration business. This course will cover all aspects of the prospect maturation process: play understanding in the context of regional geological understanding; detailed prospect evaluation; realistic risk & volume assessment consistent with the play understanding and prospect details, and an introduction to exploration economics.

Throughout the course, there is a strong focus on pragmatic (geo) logical approach for assessing those aspects that are input parameters for a meaningful assessment of prospect risks and volumes, with emphasis on a balanced integration of contributions from different sub-surface disciplines.

In addition, an introduction of unconventional gas will be given with emphasis on the differences between conventional and unconventional gas and the implications for evaluation of prospects.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Have a good understanding of the essentials for realistic risk and volume assessments of exploration prospects
  • Produce well-considered and realistic assessments for prospects they may be working on
  • Understand and constructively challenge risk and volume assessments of colleagues and/or partners/competitors

This course is designed primarily for Geoscientists who have been working for several years in exploration and who want to improve their expertise of the prospect maturation process and risk and volume assessment, as well as for their direct supervisors.

It will also benefit staff from disciplines working closely with exploration staff including Prospect Portfolio Analysts, Petrophysicists, Geophysicists and Reservoir Engineers.

Each topic is introduced by a lecture, and learning is re-enforced by practical exercises and discussions. Hand-out materials in paper and/or electronic format will be provided.

Dr. Jan de Jager has a PhD in Geology from the University of Utrecht. He joined Shell in 1979 as an exploration geologist, and worked in several locations around the world such as Netherlands, Gabon, USA, Australia, Argentina, and Malaysia in technical and management positions. During the last 10 years of his career, he was responsible for the quality assurance of Shell’s exploration prospects in many parts of the world and for upgrading and replenishing Shell’s global exploration portfolio. During this period, he had also developed extensive expertise in Prospect Risk and Volume assessments for which he ran successful internal training programmes. Following his retirement from Shell in 2010, Dr Jan de Jager took on a position as part-time professor at the University of Amsterdam and also serves as a consultant exploration advisor for various E&P companies.

This is a very good topic. The training provided step by step knowledge about every aspect that can affect prospect calculation.

Geophysicist, Star Energy

Great course. The course is very interesting and relevant to current exploration practices

Subsurface Analyst, Woodside

Very good training. Comes with a complete module on how to assess prospect risk as well as to estimate POS & Volumetrics

Geologist, Medco Energi

Very helpful course. Thanks a lot.

Geophysicist Assistant, National Petroleum Authority (ANP) – Timor Leste

Very knowledgeable trainer.

NV Manager, JX Nippon

It was very helpful training for me and it opened new horizons that helped to further enhance my knowledge.

Sr. Geologist, Oil & Gas Development Company Ltd (OGDCL)

This wonderful step-by-step building up skills for maturing prospector surely lead to a reasonable and balanced decision for future E&P projects.

Professor, Chungbuk National

Good materials, clear hands-out and good exercises too.

Reservoir Engineer, Brunei Shell Petroleum Sdn. Bhd

The course is really good and provides us with further understanding and a more standardised way to mature our prospect. All aspects are covered in geology from engineer to economics.

Geologist, Brunei National Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd

The trainer’s vast knowledge and skills, coupled with his excellent presentation and communication skills are what brought this course to life.
