Can a Project be built during a Tough Market?

Commodity prices are down, capital expenses are up, but there may be circumstances that merit building your project now. This session will focus on:

  1. Procurement practices: RFP components and bid evaluation criteria to ensure a cost effective project
  2. Contract type: what is going to work best for you in this market?  EPC? EPCM? Other?
  3. EPCM may appear to save you money up-front in terms of anticipated capital costs but how do you avoid getting bitten at the back-end?!
