Uncertain input factors include yearly production, decline rate, GOR, price of gas, price of oil, and rate of increase in oil and gas prices.
A SimTable function is also used in the Discount Rate input that is used to calculate Total NPV. This contains two possible values for Discount Rate – 12% and 14% – enabling you to run two back-to-back simulations to compare the effect of different discount rates on your Total NPV.
