Geophysical Technologies can represent a valuable input to integrate to petroleum resources evaluation both in terms of uncertainty estimates and project maturity as per PRMS resource classification framework. The “Guidelines for Application of the Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS‐AG)”, cosponsored by the SEG, makes many references to the application of Geophysical Technologies on estimating petroleum resources. The technical maturity of a project can be significantly impacted by applying Geophysical Technologies for assessing structural definition, reservoir development, fluid contacts and movements as well as flow surveillance, especially in the conventional domain. Furthermore, Geophysical Technologies will contribute to the definition of the range of the low, best, and high resource volume estimates. The presentation will review, through examples, the most relevant geophysical parts of the PRMS‐AG and key issues for geoscientists involved in petroleum resources estimation and classification.
