    In , the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) published the results of a national assessment of undiscovered oil and natural gas resources for the United States, including the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The publication, USGS Circular , was entitled "Estimates of Undiscovered Recoverable Conventional Resources of Oil and Gas in the United States" (hereafter referred to as Circular ). Abstract. An assessment was made of the undiscovered recoverable oil and gas resources of the Békés basin. The resulting mean estimates were million metric tons* of undiscovered oil and ×10 9 m 3 of undiscovered natural gas (recoverable). This compares with discovered amounts (through ) of million metric tons of oil and ×10 9 m of natural gas.

    undiscovered conventional oil and gas resources in all areas north of. the Arctic Circle. Using a geology-based probabilistic methodology, the USGS estimated the occurrence of undiscovered oil and gas in 33 geologic provinces thought to be prospective for petroleum. The sum of the mean estimates for each province indicates that 90 billion. The report includes mean estimates of undiscovered but technically recoverable conventional oil and gas resources in geologic provinces of the world. These estimates include resources beneath.

    USGS estimates WSB's undiscovered oil, gas resources There are an estimated billion bbl of undiscovered oil and tcf of gas north of the Arctic Circle in Russia's West Siberian Basin. A large proportion of the undiscovered oil resources are estimated to occur in the northern third of the NPRA in moderate size accumulations. New estimates of technically recoverable undiscovered natural gas resources on federal lands in the NPRA range between and trillion cubic feet (TCF), with a mean value of TCF.

An example of the problem is shown by a table from a Oil and Gas Journal article, that gives four estimates of undiscovered recoverable oil and gas of the onshore lower 48 states that range from 9 to billion barrels of oil and 65 to 1, trillion cubic feet of gas.

Using a geology-based assessment methodology, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated undiscovered, technically recoverable mean resources of million barrels of shale oil and billion cubic feet of shale gas in the Mississippian Delle Phosphatic Member of the Woodman Formation in the Eastern Great Basin Province of Nevada, Utah, and Idaho.

Incorporating the committee's recommendations in future resource assessments is likely to result in significant changes in the estimates of undiscovered oil and gas. The committee believes the overall impact will be to increase both the point estimates and the breadth of the range of estimated resource.

This chapter presents a probability approach to estimate volumes of undiscovered oil and gas. It illustrates the classification of hydrocarbon resources or potential ultimate recovery. The proved plus prospective ultimate recovery is the total discovered recoverable from known fields.

Of the undiscovered gas resource of TCFG, the Arctic provinces are estimated to contain about 40 percent (58 TCFG).

Most of this area is poorly explored for oil and natural gas; however, the United States Geological Survey estimates that the Arctic contains approximately 13 percent of the world's undiscovered conventional oil resources and about 30 percent of its undiscovered conventional natural gas resources.

Abstract. The latest estimates of the Nation’s conventional oil and natural gas resources have been published in a detailed report as Circular. focuses on an estimate of undiscovered oil and gas resources in conventional sand and siltstone reservoirs of Lower Cretaceous Albian age, approximately to Ma (mega-annum) (Salvador and Quezada Muñeton, ).

The USGS estimates that there may be to billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in the Bakken Formation (with a mean estimate of billion barrels). These are estimates of oil that has yet to be found, but if found, could be produced using currently available technology and industry practices.

Estimates are based on an assessment of the geologic. First, our estimates of total undiscovered technically recoverable petroleum (oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids) resources do not differ greatly (+ percent) from the world totals determined.

A new assessment by the US Geological Survey concludes that expected volumes of undiscovered resources outside the US are billion bbl of oil, tcf of gas, and billion bbl of gas. This estimate is of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources, and includes both unconventional and conventional resources.

These gas estimates. The Arctic holds an estimated 13% (90 billion barrels) of the world's undiscovered conventional oil resources and 30% of its undiscovered conventional natural gas resources, according to an assessment conducted by the U.S.

Geological Survey (USGS). Consideration of these resources as commercially viable is relatively recent despite the size of the Arctic's resources due to the difficulty. Get this from a library.
