Report summary

We review the growing transparency of forward exploration programmes.  Explorers, led by Small and Mid-Caps, are revealing prospect details including pre-drill volumes and risks.  Over the past five years they have established a healthy track record of prediction accuracy.  Over 95% of announced wells are completed within the year and around 80% of predicted volumes have been discovered.  We expect the quantity of prospect disclosure to continue rising.
