Question Title IAS37
An offshore oil exploration company is required by its license to remove the rig and restore the seabed. Management has estimated that 85% of the eventual cost will be incurred in removing the rig and 15% through the extraction of oil. The company’s practice on similar projects has been to account for the decommissioning costs using the ‘unit of production’ method whereby the amount required for decommissioning was built up year by year, in line with production levels, to reach the amount of the expected costs by the time production ceased. Keeping in mind the past experiences, the company has created the provision for this purpose.
Being a financial analyst, you are required to analyze the above decision of the company by answering following questions:Is there a present obligation as a result of a past event? Is there a probable transfer of economic benefits? Can the amount of the outflow be reasonably estimated?
