Unconventional Oil

  • Things you should definitely know about unconventional oil resources

  • The vast majority of unconventional oil wells lose money even at $100 per barrel
  • Initial oil rates and EUR are virtually independent
  • With the right information, it is possible to predict EUR prior to completion
  • Why accept someone's wishful thinking when you can get reliable numbers?

Scientific Computing
