Challenge 1 Explore Sedimentary Basins Upstream License Promotion – Prospecting and Bids Partnerships, Exploration Drilling and Appraisal

First task Challenge:  Nominate 10 blocks to be included in the licensing round Procedure:  Buy and study Environmentally Sensitive area map  Buy and study magnetic and gravimetric surveys  View map to determine average block water depth  Study data to determine if blocks are in sedimentary basin and most suitable to be included in a Licensing Round

Map Columns e.g C1 and C54 Rows e.g R15 and R97 Blocks are divided into smaller cells e g. R45,C92

Environmentally Sensitive area map Red areas You will not be awarded blocks that contain any red area Blue areas Blocks that contain wholly blue areas are awardable

Rock cycle and sedimentary basins Sedimentary basin Source:

Gravimetric surveys • Gravity is a force of attraction between objects of mass • If the speed of attraction is lower than expected this can indicate low density rocks in the subsurface • Sedimentary rocks have a low density due to their porosity. • The lower the gravitational pull – the thicker the sedimentary rock is likely to be

Survey shop and gravimetrics     Survey tab Buy Gravimetric surveys South-east quadrant The red and yellow areas indicate basin

Earth’s magnetic fields The Earth’s core creates magnetic fields  Anomalies of the expected magnetism are found in different sub-surfaces  Lower concentration of magnetic materials can indicate sedimentary rocks  Can contain hydrocarbons  Source:

Magnetic surveys     Sedimentary rocks in the basins have a lower concentration of magnetic materials than the surrounding crystalline rocks Basins have a low magnetic field Pink area is thickest rock of low magnetism Magnetic survey: South-east quadrant

Compare basins and blocks E.g. block 650 - Inside basin? Water depth?

Check water depth

Enter bids Choose which blocks you want to bid for  For each block, say how many exploration wells you are willing to drill  Do NOT promise to drill more wells than there are prospects  An estimated cost is shown  You will initially only be awarded one block 

Corporate Social Responsibility Often part of License Bid Corporal Social Responsibility budget and proposed types of activities  Activities that oil and gas companies do to serve the communities they operate in  CSR projects usually to develop the local communities in education, social welfare, and business  

CSR tab

CSR projects Some are greyed out, because the team does not have enough CP, enough CSR budget, or enough cash to do them  Each has a cost, and a number of possible outcomes  Each outcome has a probability and either negative or positive CP  In the CSR tab you can see the minimum and maximum CP you can get, as well as the probability for getting the maximum CP 

Project Example   This project costs $8M If it goes well, the team gets 40 CP  The likelihood of this is 60%   If it goes badly, the team gets zero CP Minimum required CP is zero


Limitations   Lots of different types of Projects to choose from You only have $30M budget for CSR in each licensing round  CSR funds that you don’t spend in one round are transferred to the next You cannot initiate a project if it has the potential to make your CP’s go into negative  You cannot initiate a project if you don’t have the cash for it  Each project can only be run once per team 

Learning points CSR is about caring for the local society – and making a difference for the people living where you operate  Not all projects are sound   Bribery does not pay   Some projects cost a lot, but do not give so much return Some projects are riskier than others

Recap on challenge 2 Common Risk Segment surveys to see which blocks to examine closer  2D surveys seismic to identify which ones have the most or largest structures  Check water depth  Go for shallow water blocks if possible?  Remember to submit 3 bids 

Challenge 2 Your turn

Challenge 3 Explore Sedimentary Basins Upstream License Promotion – Prospecting and Bids Partnerships, Exploration Drilling and Appraisal

Challenge 3 Message sent to all teams with the results  Credibility Points are given for prosperity of the blocks you bid for  Every team has got one exploration license 

Review Challenge 2 results

Challenge 3a Partnerships  Compulsory: Farm-out minimum 20% from your license  Acquire 3D Seismic interpretations for the block you operate, and  Get others to invest 20% or more in your license – you can show/send 3D seismic  Optional: farm-in to other licenses   Study the results from the licensing round View other company’s 3D seismic

Why partner?   Spread the risk Increase probability of profit

Water depth If awarded an alternative block  Check your water depth  Find this at the bottom of the BLOCK page 

Farm-in Enter the percentage and total amount you have agreed to offer Minimum $100,000 per % Add a message to the seller Press “Send offer”

Farm-in All your farm-in offers to other teams are shown under “Investing” on the right-hand side of the homepage . This is where a team offers investments to other teams for a % of their blocks

Farm-in  When a team receives a Farm-In offer it appears under Financing. This is where a team can receive finance or money for a % of their own blocks

Farm-in   License OWNER decides whether to ACCEPT or REJECT the offer Partnerships established every time a license owner accepts an offer.

Partnership terms Partners pay a proportional share of all future costs Partners receive a proportional share of the net proceeds from oil and gas  Original operator makes all decisions regarding drilling  Operators can farm-out up to 70% of license, but must retain 30%  

Partnership choices       What do you need to know about your block? What proposition do you have? What do you need to know about potential partners? Information about their block? Team involvement in choices and offers Overall partnership plan

Block information

Discovered prospects

Value if developed

Value calculation 25% of 8 MBOE @ $50 Expected costs if you developed the field (capex) and produced the oil (opex) If total expenses are higher than the sales value, the value of the license is zero

Appraisal  From Possible volume to proven reserves

Drilling – Wildcats & Appraisals Wildcats Drill wildcats – establish reservoirs  Continue appraisal drilling to increase the proven reserves  Appraisals

Appraisal drilling

Increasing proven volumes   Appraisal wells - proven reserves increase Range between proven and possible is decreased

Effect on calculation of licence Expected costs if you developed the field (CAPEX) and produced the oil (OPEX) Now total expenses are lower than the sales value and so we have a positive licence value

Challenge 3 decisions    After your first drill into a prospect, reinterpret the seismic Decide how many appraisal wells to drill for each discovery Continue partnerships – value of licences increasing - % offered must ≥ % value in real money (e.g Licence Value now $500m, buying a 10% share would give min. bid of $50m)  Ultimately, you should:  Get a positive net present value,  Or conclude that additional appraisal wells will not result in an improvement in net present value

Apply for more funds    Click on Apply for More Funds Tab. 1 CP for each $100,000 applied for. Answer three questions: Outcome Credibility Points All Correct Full Amount Keep All One Wrong Full Amount Keep Half Two Wrong Half Lose All All Wrong  Cash None Lose All Expensive money if less than 10 credibility points: Apply for cash and be fined $5million for each $20million requested.
