This is an Excel financial model template for an upstream oil & gas project aiming to determine a project’s financial feasibility. The model contains a forecast horizon between 30 to 50 years depending on the model version. The model is driven by oil production assumptions that drive gas and NGL production. Gas prices are linked to oil price assumptions as well. The model comes with detailed financial projections and breakdowns as well as a variety of analysis (cost structure, project metrics, and in the Pro Version break-even and sensitivity analysis). The model also includes a profit-sharing model.

Please note, this model analyzes 1 drilling well project. If you need to analyze a portfolio of Drilling Well projects, kindly refer to the Private Equity Oil and Gas Financial Model Template.

    Incredible value for the price. Becomes intuitive after playing around with it. Versatile and full of useful information. Can tweak so many different scenarios. Professional looking. Would’ve paid more for it. The creator is knowledgeable about financial modeling and drilling and producing oil and gas.
