data(Oil)

A dataframe containing :

- dur
duration of the appraisal lag in months (time span between discovery of an oil field and beginning of development, i.e. approval of annex B).

- size
size of recoverable reserves in millions of barrels

- waterd
depth of the sea in metres

- gasres
size of recoverable gas reserves in billions of cubic feet

- operator
equity market value (in 1991 million pounds) of the company operating the oil field

- p
real after–tax oil price measured at time of annex B approval

- vardp
volatility of the real oil price process measured as the squared recursive standard errors of the regression of pt-pt-1 on a constant

- p97
adaptive expectations (with parameter theta=0.97) for the real after–tax oil prices formed at the time of annex B approval

- varp97
volatility of the adaptive expectations (with parameter theta=0.97) for real after tax oil prices measured as the squared recursive standard errors of the regression of pt on pte(theta)

- p98
adaptive expectations (with parameter theta=0.98) for the real after–tax oil prices formed at the time of annex B approval

- varp98
volatility of the adaptive expectations (with parameter theta=0.98) for real after tax oil prices measured as the squared recursive standard errors of the regression of pt on pte(theta)
