- Is the estimated annual lease operating expense a realistic cost that accounts for inflation?
- Have occasional capital expenditures like workovers been taken into account?
- Are there any undisclosed well failures that the appraiser might not be informed about?
- Is the appraisal using the accurate working interest decimal ownership?
- Do the equipment salvage values encompass future expenses for good abandonment and site remediation?
