The specialty chemical Company;operates a crude oil refinery located in New Iberia, LA. The company refines;crude oil and sells the by-products to companies that make plastic bottles and;jugs. The firm is currently planning for its refining needs for one year hence.;Specifically, the firms analysts estimate that specialty will need to purchase;1 million barrels of crude oil at the end of of the current year to provide the;feed stock for its refining needs for the coming year. The 1 million barrels of;crude oil will be converted into by products at an average cost of $15 per;barrel that Specialty expects to sell for $175 million, or $175 per barrel of;crude used. The current spot price of oil is $120 per barrel and Specialty has;been offered a forward contract by its investment banker to purchase the needed;oil for a delivery price in one year of $125 per barrel.;A.
