  2018 1,680,000

Salvage value of machinery and equipment at the end of the well's productive life

  1,170,000
Cost of Capital   6%

Expert Answer

Step 1

The Net Present Value of the project has to be determined by deducting the present values of all inflows from the present values of all outflows

Step 2

The Present Value of inflows and (outflows) have been presented below

 Amount $PV of $1 @6%Present value $
Investment in rigging equipment(6,800,000)1(6,800,000)
Increase in inventory and receivables(1,180,000) (1,180,000)
Total Outflow  (7,980,000)
