What is a Giant Field?

Published in R. K. Merrill and C. A. Sternbach. Giant fields of the decade 2000–2010. Tulsa: AAPG. 2017, p. 9-14
Abstract Study of giant oil and gas fields is useful not only to understand oil and gas habitat but also because statistical analysis of these data sheds light on future energy supplies. In such statistical studies, the definitions of both “giant” and “field” are important. The development of giant accumulations that are not fields increases the resource supply but can simultaneously decrease the accuracy of resource estimates and production forecasts unless care is taken with definitional issues.
