Why Choose this Workshop?

In today’s challenging environment it is important for businesses to maintain their competitive position. They need to ensure that they are offering attractive, up-to-date, high quality products to their customers. A company that was successful in 2016 cannot assume that their success will continue through to 2020, unless they are prepared to make new investments on a regular basis.

This accessible PetroKnowledge workshop will guide you through the process of identifying and selecting new projects, preparing forecasts, and applying evaluation techniques, to ensure that only the best projects are approved for investment.

The workshop will comprise the following key elements:

  • Identifying potential new projects that will fit with our medium and long term strategic plans
  • Collecting relevant data and constructing financial forecasts relating to our proposed projects
  • Applying and calculating four popular appraisal methods, Accounting Rate of Return, Payback Period, Net Present Value, and Internal Rate of Return
  • Refining the investment decision by considering the impact of inflation, taxation, and limitation of funds
  • Incorporating the effect of risk and uncertainty in the appraisal process
