Offshore Field Feasibility Study - Economic Analysis

Feasibility Study conducted at end of Exploration Period, therefore only Development, Production and Decomissioning cash flows considered
All cash flows in 2007 CAN$, end-of-year accounting used.
Provided data based on engineering evaluation:
a) development costs $900M over 4 year period
b) 17 production life in four stages: i) 4 years @ 90,000 bbl/day with COP = $20/bbl
ii) 5 years @ 145,000 with COP = $30/bbl
iii) 5 years @80,000 bbl/day with COP = $25/bbl
iv) remaining

c) Annual sustained non-production expenses = $98M
e) Decomissioning cost = $180M over two years after production period
f) Expected market price for crude oil ranges between $30 and $60 CAD/bbl with 80% confidence. (Use minimum of 4 steps over this expected range.)
