About the ARO Opening Balance Calculator:

When an entity has a contractual commitment to restore a long-lived asset or the surrounding environment to its original condition, an asset retirement obligation (ARO) exists. An ARO is recorded at the estimated cost to return the asset and/or its surrounding environment to its original condition. The ARO Opening Balance Calculator helps simplify the initial liability calculation.
