Currently the price of oil is $50 per barrel. What is the present value of the well’s production if the discount rate is 10% p.a. effective. (Time/Marks 5)
ANSWER: 1 + Adjusted interest rate = 1+i = 1.10 /(0.95*1.03) = 1.124169647 => Adjusted interest rate = i = 0. 124169647; So the given cash flow stream (a growing annuity) is equivalent to a level annuity of Rs.25 lakh for 15 years @ an adjusted interest rate of i = 0. 124169647 => So the PVOA15 = (50,0000 x 50) x PVIFOA12.417%,15yrs = $25,00,0000 x 6.661923 = $166,54,807/-.
