Hydrocarbon deposits progress through a variety of categories on their way to being classified as proved reserves. There are three broad categories currently recognized by the industry; prospective Previous HitresourcesNext Hit, contingent Previous HitresourcesNext Hit, and finally reserves.

The subject of this talk is contingent Previous HitresourcesNext Hit, which are considered discovered, technically recoverable volumes which are not currently economic.

Formal definitions will be presented, followed by examples in North Williston Basin Previous HitunconventionalNext Hit oil, the Wyoming Baxter shale, and early San Juan Basin coal bed methane
