An efficient exploration process map has been developed using business process modeling, which align the technical workflows in context of corporate goals to build a successful exploration pathway. It defines multi-domain workflows for play-based exploration from basin scale to prospect scale and the guidance to produce appropriate elements for the required business decision in each stage. The structured business process hierarchy enables selection of optimal technical workflows required to deliver the desired business outcome. It facilitates a clearer understanding of the endpoint result and interdependency of different technical activities including clear pathways between the gates; thus, significantly improving the efficiency of technical resources to produce a high-quality, timely and trusted result.
