Cost and value It is unwise to pay too much but its worse to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is as well to add something for the risk you run. If you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better. John Ruskin
Exploration means to stimulate exploration on UKCS how to make exploration more attractive lessons from other provinces how to make licensing more efficient
