The decision to complete an oil or gas well is a paramount one.  A company may spend anywhere from $1MM onshore, to tens of millions of dollars offshore, based on this decision.  The completion decision is the final test and culmination of whether your geology was correct and the “what next?” after the well is drilled.  We’ll discuss mud and open hole logs to determine if and how much oil or gas is there.  We will also have a brief discussion of the economics of completion decision: “How much is it going to cost?” and “Are we going to make any money?”  It is important for all of us working in the oil and gas business to understand that this last question is the basis of everything we do.  If the company does not make money, we are all out of work.
