Introduction and Motivations
The people of Saudi Arabia know about our business. This book is about two camels. One is the 4D-seismic-data camel that should be welcomed into the reservoir-management tent, provided it does not bring all its multifold baggage with it. The other is the financial-accountant camel that is forcing its way into the geoscience tent, demanding to be fed. This camel cannot be satisfied by our hunches and hopes — this camel wants to chew on the current status of our assets and our quantitative predictions of how those assets will perform.
The aim of this book is to help two camels with one throw, so to speak.
