What are our ethical responsibilities as oil and gas professionals? Competent reserve and resource estimates rely not only on sound engineering and geoscience judgement, but on healthy ethical discipline. Using case studies, this talk illustrates the common roots among professional ethics codes, the balance between technical and human elements, and the scale of their potential impact.
