# Answer to Question #41890 in Finance for Lindsey

Question #41890
Texas Wildcatters Inc. (TWI) is in the business of finding and developing oil properties, and then selling the successful ones to major oil refining companies. TWI is now considering a new potential field, and its geologists have developed the following data, in thousands of dollars.
t = 0. A $400 feasibility study would be conducted at t = 0. The results of this study would determine if the company should commence drilling operations or make no further investment and abandon the project.t = 1. If the feasibility study indicates good potential, the firm would spend$1,000 at t = 1 to drill exploratory wells. The best estimate is that there is an 80% probability that the exploratory wells would indicate good potential and thus that further work would be done, and a 20% probability that the outlook would look bad and the project would be abandoned.t = 2. If the exploratory wells test positive, TWI would go ahead and spend \$10,000 to obtain an accurate estimate of the amount of oil in the field at at t
