Oil Sands


Lead cost and schedule consultant retained by a group of insurance companies to evaluate the reasonableness of a $200 million cost estimate and cost/schedule risks associated with the repair of fire damage to four electrostatic precipitators and enclosures in a large oil sands plant in Alberta. The engagement involved site visits, interviews, and the evaluation of rebuild cost and schedule estimates and supporting documentation, with particular emphasis on assumptions, construction means and methods, labor costs and productivity, field indirect costs, contingency, and expediting and delay costs. Final work products included written reports, which addressed the bases for and reasonableness of the repair schedule and cost estimate, and the cost impact of several expedited repair schedule alternatives, and oral presentations to loss adjusters and insurance company representatives.
