Capital Projects Analysis
Evaluating the feasibility of new facilities or the expansion/modification of existing plants has been a primary emphasis of our client services. In mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, we work with major global investment banks, and recommend specific courses of action to minimize the client’s exposure to risk and to provide the highest achievable return on investment.
We act as the interface among investors, lending institutions, and oil and chemical companies. We have served as Independent Technical and Market Advisors on greenfield world-scale production, upgrading, refining, petrochemical, chemical, manufacturing, and fertilizer facilities throughout the world.
Our scope of services range from preparing bankable documents, assisting in syndication presentations, conducting independent cost and schedule verification, monitoring construction progress, to developing and certifying acceptance test runs.
In addition to performing conventional financial analysis of proposed capital projects, we also provide insight for:
- Peripheral issues — political, environmental, community, etc. issues, which may become central initially or during the life of the project
- Technological and market competitiveness — in-depth technology comparisons from economic, operability, and reliability standpoints stemming from our strong background and experience
- Transition — understanding the problems and opportunities inherent in developing a concept into a viable venture in terms of economics, markets, financing, risks, and competitive factors
