What makes each super basin unique and what can we learn from it?
What is the exploration/ production history and what are the major plays with remaining potential, including conventional, unconventional, and field growth?
What are key innovations in each super basin: adoption of horizontal drilling, hydraulic stimulation, completing and drilling techniques, and seismic imaging that helped unlock the potential and what is needed for further growth?
How do “above ground” issues like politics, access, mineral ownership, and geography influence realizing the full resource potential of each super basin?
Will a basin be a regional or global disrupter?
What are the critical geoscience elements that contribute to success?
