Course DescriptionThis 1-day course presents the fundamental components of the Petroleum Resource Management System (PRMS) of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and provides examples of classification of recoverable volumes of oil and gas in prospective resources, contingent resources, and reserves as the prospects advance toward maturity.

The PRMS is an industry standard approach to classifying petroleum resources. Portfolio managers use it to support their evaluations and decisions.

At the end of the workshop, participants will fully understand the PRMS and how to allocate recoverable volumes to the appropriate reserve categories or resources, and to the project's maturity sub-class. The theoretical material of the course is complemented with exercises to strengthen the concepts on which PRMS is based.

The resource definitions and course presentations will focus on the specific methodologies used in PRMS. Topics include:

  • PRMS project background including the reasons for and topics included in the update
  • Major principles and key guidelines in PRMS
  • Principles of PRMS Classification of reserves
  • Prospective and contingent resources
  • Project maturity sub-classes
  • Conventional and unconventional classifications
  • Risk
  • Estimation and categorization of uncertainty
  • PRMS support for resources, project and portfolio management
