  • Optimal Oil Production and the World Supply of Oilby Nikolay Aleksandrov; lajos Gyurko; Raphael A. Espinoza

    International Monetary Fund 2012; US$ 9.00

    We study the optimal oil extraction strategy and the value of an oil field using a multiple real option approach. The numerical method is flexible enough to solve a model with several state variables, to discuss the effect of risk aversion, and to take into account uncertainty in the size of reserves. Optimal extraction in the baseline model is found... more...

  • Strategies for Optimizing Petroleum Explorationby Lev Knoring; M.V. Gorfunkel; G.V. Chilingarian

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 146.00

    Here is a valuable guide to appraise and develop petroleum resources. Geology largely determines exploration policy. This book analyzes the strategic connection between the two and shows how to improve decision making on appraising and developing petroleum resources. It examines and describes the internal patterns in finding oil and gas deposits and... more...
