Problem 1: (20 points) Production data from a well has depleted drastically. To avoid shutting in the well, the production engineer has suggested to invest a gas lift pump with price of \$500,000. By installing the pump, it is estimated that the production is economical for the next 4 years with the following revenue: Time, year Rev., \$ 1 580,000 2 470,000 3 360,000 4 270,000 Operating cost is estimated to be \$100,000 for the first year, increasing \$20,000 annually due to the pump maintenance cost. Also, Tax is 40% of the Net Operating Income. Based on the Net Cash Flow model: a) What is the undiscounted payout time? (10 points) b) What is the bail-out time if the salvage value is \$250,000 at year 1 and decreases \$100,000 annually for the following years? (10 points) Problem 2: (15 points) For the following economic analysis table. calculate the following yardsticks: 1) Undiscounted profit to investment (5 points) 2) Discounted payout (5 points) 3) Discounted return of investment (5 points) OPEX Cum.

Hewever, to evaluate the risk of losing money, you are considering options of 1) invest alone, 2) farm-out with company A. 3) farm-out with company B. or 4) sell the project to company C. The maximum NPV gain (success of the project) and NPV loss (dry hole) for each option is available as following. a) For what percentage of success you suggest to farm-out with company B?
