SCA-10-Habits
THE TEN HABITS OF HIGHLY
SUCCESSFUL OIL FINDERS

SCA’s founder, Dan Tearpock, was fond of saying that it is highly trained geoscientists, not workstations that find oil and gas. Toward that end, Dan championed a Philosophical Doctrine for exploration and exploitation of oil and gas resources comprised of 10 industry best practices. These industry best practices are summarized below as the “Ten Habits of Highly Successful Oil Finders."

SCA has been teaching the Ten Habits since 1988. We have seen that those individuals, teams, or companies that adopt this Doctrine and make the Ten Habits part of their geoscience workflow experience a reduction in the number of dry holes and non-commercial wells they drill as well as improved accuracy of their reserve and resource estimations.

In other words, by adapting the Ten Habits, you will improve your bottom line.
