F01 – Exploration challenges – how to reduce risk?
Monday, 10th July 13:30 - 15:00 (Hall 1)
Poster Session Tuesday 11 July 11:00-13:00 (Poster Plaza)


Our industry continues to make new oil and gas discoveries using advanced technologies and improved processes – enabling us to go deeper, more quickly, more accurately, and more safely than ever before. To do so, we must manage the uncertainty of geopolitical risks, economic risks, financial risks, geologic risks, project risks, policy risks, regulatory changes and the supply and-demand volatility inherent to commodity markets. This Forum will discuss reducing risks in exploration - from regional geology, geophysical techniques and advances in high-speed drilling and completions to commercial and geopolitical risks in order to develop these resources in a safe, secure, and environmentally responsible way.
