  • Objectives/Project Charter. Generally it begins with lack of clarity. Methodical process of successive iterations aids decision-making processes and leads to productive outcomes
  • Generally the objective is not merely about discovering presence of hydrocarbons (HC), but to study for feasibility for monetization of Reserves, which is dependent upon collective outcome of various variables and uncertainties
  • Treat Drilling life cycle versus Well life cycle with different perspectives
  • Well-design process should not result in either under-design or over-design, but should be fit-for-purpose
  • Utilize Reservoir Management tools to improve decision-making processes
  • Utilize Project Management tools, e.g. Lean, Risk Management, Quality Management, etc.
