Operating Expenses, Cash Flow, Finding and Development Costs, Return on Capital Employed are but a few of the hundreds of measurements and metrics used to analyze performance in the oil and gas industry. From individual wells to entire portfolios, performance analysis is used to make decisions throughout an organization. Unfortunately, performance analysis is generally conducted in the higher echelons of an oil and gas company, and thus its value in creating actionable information at the field level is generally lost. This book seeks to bridge this gap by introducing the basic concepts of oil and gas performance analysis.
