Help Improve the Industry’s Decision Making

Eric Bickel (Texas A&M University), Reidar Bratvold (University of Stavanger), and Ron Howard (Stanford University) are researching uncertainty quantification techniques and decision making processes in the oil and gas industry. They have developed a short survey to aid their understanding of these issues. The intent is to use the results of the survey to recommend changes that will improve decision making in the industry. The results will be presented at the 2007 ATCE and published in the “Decision-Making in the Oil and Gas Industry—From Blissful Ignorance to Uncertainty Induced Confusion” (SPE Paper 109610).

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous. Please support this effort!

Here is a link to the survey:
