Project Profitability Studies


The decision to invest in the development of an oil or gas field is the outcome of a long process aiming at evaluating the Reserves, the Cost of the Investment (CAPEX), the Operating Expenses (OPEX) and the Risks associated to the field development. 
A series of studies will allow the developer to better evaluate these Risks and gain knowledge in the most appropriate technologies to be used to produce the Reserves and operate the facilities.
Through the Risk evaluation and study, the Developer will identify the key variables which contribute most to the Project’s Risk. By playing with these key elements, he will evaluate the reliability and sustainability of the Project and therefore analyse the acceptability of the Project.
The deliverables of all the development studies leads to the Final Investment Decision, opening to the EPC Contract(s) and the construction of the Facilities.
