Event: Uncertainty, Risk and Decision Analysis in the Petroleum Industry



Date(s) - 3 Jun 2012
9:00 AM - 8:00 PM




The objective of this workshop is designed to develop the expertise of the petroleum industry engineers and scientists in the area of risk/uncertainty analyses and their relation to decision making process within the petroleum industry arena and related economies. This approach improves their skills to utilize all available information about the hydrocarbon accumulation and other related economic tools in depicting a realistic projection of the oil & gas ventures worth with a sharp eye on the chance of business success. It will also provide an overview of the methodologies, philosophies, data required, interpretations and procedures employed to reach specific goals. Case studies and strategy developments through utilizing traditional and non-traditional techniques will be exercised during the workshop. Monte Carlo simulator is used for risk analyses.

After completing this workshop, participants will understand uncertainties surrounding the petroleum industry and consequently the magnitude of risk taken to invest in this industry. They will learn how to identify, quantify, and analyze risk parameters contributing to risking any of the decisive key economic indicators, like NCF, IROR, Pay Out Time, Maximum Exposure, Maximum Surplus, STOIIP, GIIP, Revenue, RF, CAPEX, OPEX, Oil & Gas Prices etc. Also, they will be comfortable to use at least one of the commercial risk analysis simulators (Monte Carlo), ex: @Risk, Crystal Ball, etc.

Duration: (3 working days)
Date: 2-4 April
Course Location – UA – Abu Dhabi

Date: 2-4 June
Course location – Turkey – Istanbul

Who Should Attend

The workshop assumes no previous knowledge of uncertainty, risk analysis or decision analysis; although preliminary to intermediate knowledge of exploration, production and development of oil and gas fields are required. Advanced knowledge is a plus. The course is designed for professional petroleum industry personnel. Both upstream and downstream industry will benefit from the workshop.
