Unproved Probable Reserves

Probable reserves are those unproved reserves which analysis of geological and engineering information recommends are more likely than not to be recoverable. In this context, when probabilistic approaches are used, there ought to be at least a 50% likelihood that the quantities in fact recovered will surpass the sum or equate to of estimated proved […]

Concerns surrounding Grid Balancing
