Projects, Facilities & Constr - Cost, Profit, And Risk: Understanding The New Contracting Marketplace

      Anyone who has tried to negotiate an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) lump-sum contract for a large upstream project in the last 3 years already knows that we live in a contracting marketplace that does not even resemble that of a few years ago. Moreover, the costs of projects generally appear to be rising at rates that are extremely disturbing. This study explored and dissected each of the three major reasons that process project costs are increasing:


  • Escalation in materials costs
  • Increase in contractor profit margins
  • Pricing of contractual and project risks

 In this talk, Ed will summarize the results of the study with special attention paid to the way in which risk pricing is affecting the market, especially in the world’s “hot-spots.”
