After a short introduction on the importance and usefulness of petroleum reserves (and resources) for our industry Bernard Seiller will come back to their respective definitions and links with corporate decision-making processes.
Bernard Seiller will also explain the importance of the framework of the "Petroleum Resource Management System" (PRMS) of the SPE.
PRMS's main evolutions between its 2007 version and the new 2018 version will also be discussed, while the lecture will end with an opening to the overall world of energy, beyond Oil and Gas.
