Unconventional Resource Assessment and Valuation (URAV)

This Rose & Associates’ short course focuses on a staged investment approach for dealing with low permeability resource size and value characterization of candidate multi-well projects. URAV emphasizes the need to develop the participant’s competency in the use of probability, uncertainty, and aggregation to assess and develop unconventional resources. The premise for this short course is that sound estimation of key engineering, geotechnical, and economic parameters is essential for maximizing profitability. Type curves and sequential aggregation techniques are discussed. Composite mapping strengths and chance assessment guidelines for tight sands, carbonates and shales are provided. Due to uncertainty and the huge capital outlays at risk, unconventional resource characterization requires a staged, probabilistic approach conducive to more informed decision-making and portfolio management.

About the Presenter

Bryce Kalynchuk, P.Eng, Rose & Associates’ Partner, has a strong technical foundation in petroleum, reservoir and, production engineering. He has evaluated conventional exploration plays and unconventional resource plays on many continents including Africa, Australia, Europe, and North and South America. Over his 25-year career, Bryce has been exposed to over 4,000 new drills in conventional and unconventional plays including carbonate oil reservoirs, subsalt oil reservoirs, liquid rich shales, shale gas, tight gas and coalbed methane. He is a dynamic leader that motivates people to “get the job done” and he is a mentor and promoter of people who are natural leaders and who are top technical performers. Decisive and action oriented, Bryce makes the tough and smart decisions. He applies a no-nonsense business approach, keeping things simple and successful. Bryce brings the expediency of Apache’s sense of urgency and ExxonMobil’s fiscal discipline to the table. With broad based exposure to virtually every aspect of the oil and gas industry including both upstream and downstream areas, he has made effective business decisions for exploration, unconventional development and major projects.
