Rymarenko M.V., Skopina L.V.


The necessity of innovative development of the oil and gas industry is being discussed. Evaluation of oil and gas projects accounting for R&D costs, cost of implementation of innovations are overviewed. Real option methodology, stochastic simulation of the oil price, reserves value modeling are utilized for evaluation of projects with a high uncertainty. A model of evaluation of a reserve cost at early stage  accounting for risks and uncertainty of R&D costs is created. The model features, abilities and advantages of its practical application are considered.


Key words: real options, methods of evaluation, uncertainty and risks, innovations, oil field development project.
