    It would be useful to have the sentence in which this phrase is used.

    hola, Manuycacu
    actually, the context is just that, I'm sorry. it's an Internet page offering courses. other courses they provide:
    Directional, Horizontal, and Multilateral Drilling ;
    Reservoir Simulation Strategies;
    Applied Water Technology

    this is what people will see in the course
    • Calculate geological risk and uncertainty in exploration prospects
    • Determine prospect volumes
    • Assess reserve distribution in a play
    • Predict the number and estimated sizes of future fields
    • Describe/calibrate risks associated with finding a successful play
    thank you for your time, take care, malu

    Hi, I know there is a previous posting from 2005 on this same expression used in the oil industry, but it does not give a solution.
    Moderator note: the forum does not work like that. We only need one thread on this topic.

    My text reads:

    I am an expert in energy policy and security of supply, as well as prospect and play assessment, risk analysis... etc


    Soy experto en política energética, evaluación de previsiones y resultados???, análisis de riesgos...etc


    Thank you:(

    Be patient.
    Post again with additional information.
    Hope that someone with the correct knowledge decides to take an interest in your thread.
    Be understanding if nobody replies.

    I would like to help you, but I have no direct experience with the oil industry. "Prospect" appears to be industry jargon for "a potential oil reserve" and "play" appears to refer to "an oil reserve" or "a reserve under investigation".... but these are just educated guesses based on the context.

    Suerte.
