PROJECT COSTS ESTIMATES AND REVENUE PROJECTIONS

FCBI-Energy tracks the individual component costs contained in a representative project portfolio. As component costs (e.g., steel, labor rates) rise and fall, so does the cost of a given portfolio, providing a real-world context for total portfolio costs. The process we follow:                       

  • A representative portfolio of projects is defined.
  • Each project is modeled to the equipment level of definition.
  • Each project is then priced using a multiyear database of industry costs.
  • Individual project values are then aggregated into indices

Our global market fundamentals analysis will help you gauge possible paths for prices and the key uncertainties facing your projects.

FCBI-Energy integrated framework offers new insights ahead of conventional wisdom, providing a comprehensive early warning system that has a direct impact on investment, decision making and performance.
