We will share a workflow based on mass balance generated by basin modeling (oil system), viability analysis of exploratory plays, post-mortem and probabilistic analysis, with the objective of reformulating thinking and beginning a new cycle of exploration and eventual development, based on the evaluation of the remaining volume with a focus on the main mature basins, which later allows prospects with potential volumes preserved without quantification to be identified. Examples from Argentina will be shared
Expositor: Ignacio Brisson
Conventional and unconventional oil systems analyst
Ignacio Brisson has BS in Geology from the University of La Plata and a MS in Petroleum Geology from the University of Cuyo. He currently works in the Exploration Management at YPF S.A. as an analyst of conventional and unconventional petroleum systems. He has 33 years of experience in the oil industry, with a background in stratigraphy, basin analysis and modeling, play definition, prospect search and maturation, and reserve and risk estimation in hydrocarbon exploration projects. He has analyzed oil systems in more than 50 basins around the world, working from the United States, Brazil and Spain. He has solid experience in Sub-Andean, offshore (Atlantic, Pacific and Indian), Africa, Middle East and Asia-Pacific basins. He is instructor of petroleum systems analysis (courses given in Spain, Iran, Chile and Argentina) and, with colleagues, of two basin analysis field courses (Neuquina and Precordillera). He has written more than 50 technical reports for companies and more than 40 contributions in congresses, books and national and international magazines. His current interest is in the mass balance and evaluation of the exploratory remnant in mature productive basins and in the development of proxies for the evaluation of unconventional resources.
