Response/Comments:

If it is a 55% undivided interest in the reserves, you would look at 55% of the value of the total reserves. If it is a 55% interest in an entity that holds the reserves: you would be under §802.4, so you would look at the value of 100% of the underlying reserves

Hi Mike- quick 802.3 valuation question- if a company is buying a 55% interest in oil reserves, is the relevant value to consider just the 55% (versus the value for 100% of the reserves)?
