Challenges & Solutions

Challenges to Third Party Assessments and Values

  • Traditional third party reserve reports are often assembled quickly, sometimes with little due diligence, and may be influenced by the client company.
  • Third party reserve reports often have no risks applied to drilling and flowing proven non-producing (PDBP, PUD, PDSI) reserves – both technical and mechanical risks.
  • Some management teams may become so enamored with their future drilling prospects and portfolio they find it difficult to evaluate them dispassionately and objectively.
  • Certain companies and management teams have difficulties communicating technical information in a manner that can be translated easily into financial terms and may overlook key risks or costs associated with finding and developing new opportunities.


  • As part of a complete technical review process, INEXS meets with the management teams, reviews all available data, interpedently evaluates current production and future drilling opportunities, generates type curves as needed, and fully evaluates and documents all risks to the drilling and production portfolio.
  • INEXS then generates a summary report representing both the range of outcomes as well as the most likely outcome focused on defining and implementing the highest value field operations to maximize cash flow, through the process of generating an independent risk weighted NPV-10 value for all non-producing future well operations – including Probable and Possible reserves.
  • INEXS provides complete technical project management, with teams that evaluate the
    technical data, analyze field operations, review G&A and LOE, and deliver the results efficiently and cost effectively.
