Problem 1
Assume that BP has 100% of the working interest on Block 4 and Total has 100% of the working interest on Block 5. They unitize their working interests prior to the start of a gas injection project. After unitization, BP has a 40% working interest and Total has a 60% working interest in the unitized property. Below is the pre-unit investment made by each party:
BP, Block4       $10,000,000
Total, Block 5    $10,200,000

Assume a cash equalization is made at the time of unitization.
Prepare the entry needed by BP to record the cash equalization.

Problem 2

1. Katten Co. (a U.S. successful -efforts company) owns 100% of the WI in Block A. Katten conveys to Jamison 20% of the WI in exchange for cash of $300,000. The unproved property has capitalized costs of $1,000,000 with an impairment allowance of $200,000. Give the entry for Katten to record the conveyance.

2. Katten (a U.S. successful-efforts company) owns 100% of the WI in Block B. Block B is proved but has not started production yet. Katten sold the entire working interest to Lemoy Oil for $4,000,000 and retained an ORI. Katten had the following in its accounts for the Block:
          Proved property                500,000
          Wells and equipment      2,500,000

The fair market value of the entire interest is $4,700,000
Prepare the entry for Katten to record the sale.
