Oil and gas financial modeling is the practice of building a Net Asset Value (NAV) model for an energy project or asset. The task is to forecast cash flow for each of a company’s major projects to estimate the value of an exploration and production (E&P) segment, which is referred to as the “upstream” category of oil and gas businesses.
