Managing Risk on the New Frontiers of Energy Exploration
Within a decade, 40% of the world’s oil is expected to come from deep water, which is typically defined as water depths greater than 1,500 metres. Since 1995, the number of wells drilled in water deeper than 200 metres has increased exponentially...
Managing Risk on the New Frontiers of Energy Exploration evaluates the changing risk landscape for companies involved in the exploration and production of hydrocarbons from reserves previously untapped – ranging from intensive capital requirements to environmental objections.
It also outlines strategies to mitigate the risk associated with each new frontier and help organisations reduce their vulnerability in a space where one misstep could dramatically affect an entire industry.
