The Paris Basin is a mature basin from an exploration point of view. More than 800 exploration wells have been drilled over the last 40 years and 52 fields have been discovered from which 33. 4 Mt of petroleum have been produced by the end 2000. Based on past production data, the future exploration and production potential of the Paris Basin is estimated using classical statistical methods. The mean size of a field in theParis Basin is about 100 000 t with a 5% chance of a field whose size is…

TLDR
The paper argues that the applicability of curve-fitting techniques is more limited than adherents claim, the confidence bounds on the results are wider than commonly assumed and the techniques have a tendency to underestimate recoverable resources.
Hubbert’s Legacy: A Review of Curve-Fitting Methods to Estimate Ultimately Recoverable Resources
A growing number of commentators are forecasting a near-term peak and subsequent terminal decline in the global production of conventional oil as a result of the physical depletion of the resource.

Global oil depletion - an assessment of the evidence for a near-term peak in global oil production
This Research Report addresses the following question: 'What evidence is there to support the proposition that the global supply of ‘conventional oil’ will be constrained by physical depletion before
Influence du contexte sédimentaire et de la diagenèse sur les propriétés pétrophysiques du Dogger calcaire de l'Est du Bassin de Paris
A l'Est du Bassin de Paris, les carbonates du Dogger presentent habituellement de faibles porosites et permeabilites, en relation notamment avec une intense cimentation sparitique et d'importants
