Ever wonder how companies determine the monetary value of an oil and gas asset? The answer lies in the multidisciplinary analysis of engineering, geoscience and financial data. In this webinar, we cover some of the basics of geology and reservoir engineering, and learn how independent third-party consulting firms such as Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc. utilize data from a variety of sources and apply reserves and resource definitions to classify future oil and gas production by risk level.
