Join us at TAPL's November 17, 2022 Virtual Educational Luncheon!
Date: November 17, 2022
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Speaker: Dwayne Purvis, PE
Topic: A New Economic Yardstick for Today's Late-life Production: Holdback
Low-rate, late-life producers figure prominently in the portfolios of most oil companies, but they also create a unique financial trap for their owners.  Decades of delayed plugging has accumulated liabilities while production and cash flow have tapered down.  Combined these make it possible for cash-flowing properties with a positive present value to be net liability instead of an asset.  This presentation explains the unexpected, the dangers it creates, and how to foresee the trap so that the tax-paying public does not end up footing the bill for our former profit centers.
