This Euromoney Energy Training course focuses on the key issues involved in reporting, analysing and accounting for petroleum reserves and production at both asset and corporate level. Accounting for the accurate recording of reserves and production is of paramount importance in both meeting regulatory requirements and the optimal management of fields and assets.
There are several key categories of reserves to consider and there are subtle differences between the rules for classifying reserves adopted by financial regulators and those identified as best practice by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. Therefore there are both financial and technical dimensions to reserves classification and reporting. This course addresses both.
The course employs a mixture of PowerPoint presentations, case studies, exercises and videos to achieve its learning outcomes. The emphasis is on integrating technical and financial aspects of reserves measurement and reporting.
