General Contents, Concepts and Issues

Income tax accounting for drilling costs 

IDC vs. Equipment

Intangible Drilling  Costs (IDC)

(1)   Up to an including the installation of Christmas Tree 

  • Prior to Drilling 
    • G & G 
    • Preparation of Site 
  • During Drilling 
    • Drilling contractor’s charges 
    • Drilling mud, chemicals, cement, supplies 
    • Fuel 
    • Wages 
    • Well testing 
  • At Target depth and during completion
    • Well testing
    • Perforating and cementing
    • Swabbing, acidizing and fracturing
    • Labour related to the installation of subsurface equipment
    • Plugging and abandoning cost – for dry wells

(2)   After Christmas tree – following completion

  • Removal of Drilling Rig
  • Restoration of land and damages paid to surface owner

(3)   Wells other than Exploration and development Wells

  • Intangible costs for extending well (see lists 1 & 2, above)
  • Intangible costs incurred in drilling water supply and injection wells
  • Intangible costs incurred in drilling water and injection – where water well is being used to for exploration and development well or for injection.

Financial accounting for drilling and development costs 

Well classification

Exploratory well

Service well

Stratigraphic test well

Proved developed oil and gas reserves

Proved undeveloped reserves

Successful Efforts, exploration costs

Exploratory drilling costs

Development drilling costs

Stratigraphic test wells

AFE’s and drilling contracts

Special drilling operations and problems

(1)    Workovers

(2)    Damaged or lost equipment  and materials

(3)    Fishing and side tracking

(4)   Abandonment of portions of wells

Additional development costs

(1)   Development costs

  • Costs of gaining access and preparing well location for drilling
  • Costs of drill and equip development well, development-type Stratigraphic test well
  • Cost of acquiring , constructing and installing production facilities, e.g. lease 

Support equipment and facilities

Drilling and development seismic

Post-balance sheet events

Accounting for suspended well costs

Interest capitalization

Offshore and international operations

Problems and Issues associated with Successful Efforts Accounting for Drilling Development Costs


Costs of Property

Cost of lease and well equipment

Cost disposition through amortization

  • Reserves owned or entitled to
  • DD&A calculation
  • DD&A on a field-wide basis
  • DD&A when oil and gas reserve are produced jointly
  • Estimated future dismantlement, site restoration, and abandonment costs
  • Exclusion of costs or reserves
  • Depreciation of support  equipment and facilities
  • Cost disposition – nonworking interests
  • Revision of DD&A rates

Cost disposition through abandonment or retirement of proved property

Successful efforts impairment



Principles of Full Cost Oil and Gas Accounting

Disposition of capitalized costs

  • Exclusions of costs
  • Impairment of unproved properties costs
  • Abandonment of properties
  • Reclassification of properties
  • Support equipment and facilities
  • DDA&A under successful efforts versus full cost

Reserves in place – purchase

Interest capitalization
