These higher risk programs add many different elements of risk better suited for much larger companies. The success of EPC has been grounded in the low risk, shallow vertical drilling and moderate Estimated Ultimate Recovery reservoirs that continue to produce over 10 to 15 years with extremely attractive economics, commonly known as "the bread and butter" of the industry.
