studying by means of event is either part of the lifestyle and the exploration existence. a scientific evaluate of the previous is key to enhance the exploration method through higher coping with dangers and uncertainties. studying via diversified disciplines has develop into a favoured process. With new instruments for interpretation and simulation, integration and information and the construction of cross-discipline groups, we will be able to take significant leap forward in realizing the exploration activity and its various elements.

Global perspectives and classes realized at the Norwegian Continental Shelf on hazard administration and retrospective prospect overview are provided during this e-book. unique exploration case histories from the Norwegian Continental Shelf documenting either optimistic and adverse stories and highlighting the advantages of built-in pondering and strategies are provided. The impression of the appliance of assorted state-of-the artwork and constructing applied sciences on portfolio administration, chance review and volumetric and danger review of clients and discoveries are reviewed, and the long run technological demanding situations in exploring the remainder hydrocarbon strength of the Norwegian continental Shelf are summarised.
