Abstract: Amid the recent slump in E&P stocks, there have been a number of articles about tight oil forecasts. Everyone from individuals on LinkedIn to Wood Mackenzie and the Wall Street Journal have been weighing in on the quality of what are essentially reservoir engineering analyses. What is the reality? Do we know enough about these reservoirs to predict 5-year performance, much less 30-year performance? Dr. Lee will give an overview of both the truths and fictions behind those critiques.
