Yet-To-Find & Valuation: EV²

EV² is a new and unique exploration acreage valuation offering that combines the deep geologic knowledge of Robertson with the economic expertise of Wood Mackenzie. This unmatched partnership has created an independent, unbiased and consistent way to differentiate block level subsurface risk, volume and value potential.

The EV² block scale methodology enables it to bridge the gap between play level yet-to-find and detailed prospect level analysis:

  • Save time by quickly screening basin, play and block level volume and value stochastic outputs and P10, P50 and P90 estimates
  • Compare value of exploration acreage against other asset classes using consistent methodology across regions
  • Evaluate subsurface risks and extract phase, prospect density and combined common risk segment (CCRS) shapefiles
  • Strategically benchmark existing acreage portfolio against competitors to identify potential new venture and partnership opportunities
  • Edit underlying subsurface risk maps, statistical yet-to-find metrics and oil price assumptions to develop custom scenarios

Independent play-level CCRS maps

EV² builds on Robertson Basins and Plays knowledge base to provide independent play level CCRS maps. Robertson’s established yet to find approach is combined with a unique spatial Monte Carlo simulation methodology to generate a range of robust volume estimates. This is valued using Wood Mackenzie's economic databases and analysis and the results are displayed in an interactive Spotfire interface.
