A plateau shown in the depth curve over the time indicates a non productive time (NPT). While a well drilling means a well construction, a well servicing is done in a constructed well. It means that TDC curve is not a suitable to measure well servicing performance. Continue reading

Ek = excess of expenditure over revenue in period k;

N = project life

ϵ = external reinvestment rate per period

i’% = ERR

Based on equation 1-1, the following formula is developed:

                (1-2)
