# Additional production estimation with new wells

## Input(s)

\(\mathrm{K}_{\mathrm{i}}\): Number of Fields Discovered up to date in Selected Field Class (dimensionless)

\(\mathrm{K}_{\mathrm{i} \_ \text {add }}\): Number of Fields estimated to be discovered with additional number of Exploration Wells (dimensionless)

\(\mathrm{N}_{\mathrm{p} \_ \text {avg }}\): Average Annual Production of a Field in the Region (dimensionless)

## Output(s)

\(N_{p \_a d d}\): Additional Annual Production of Fields estimated to be explored (dimensionless)

## Formula(s)

\[
\mathrm{N}_{\mathrm{p} \_ \text {add }}=\left(\mathrm{K}_{\mathrm{i}}-\mathrm{K}_{\mathrm{i} \_ \text {add }}\right)\left(\mathrm{N}_{\mathrm{p} \_ \text {avg }}\right)
\]

Note: All Formulas need to be applied in each Field Class separately.
