Refineries, Petrochemical, and Chemical

Alberta, Canada

Analyzed the expediting costs associated with the $320 million rebuild of a refinery in Alberta following a fire. Performed this work in support of an insurance company’s interest on a property damage claim that the refinery owner filed. Analyzed the trade-offs of increased time-related costs that would have been incurred had the work not been expedited compared to the increased costs as a result of a fast track schedule. Evaluated the results of the various scenarios using Monte Carlo calculations to derive a probabilistic determination of the range of costs as a function of the variables involved in the analyses. Analyses contributed to a successful settlement between the insurance carrier and the owner.

Gas, Gasification, GTL, LNG, and NGL

Pennsylvania

Retained by a major U.S. gas generation and distribution company to review existing plans and procedures for change order management and project cost and schedule control. Suggested modifications/enhancements to those plans and procedures and provided templates for the contents of these plans and procedures. Also prepared proforma EPC contracts for lump sum and reimbursable cost work.

Gas, Gasification, GTL, LNG, and NGL

Nigeria

On behalf of an owner, performed a comprehensive “cold eyes” contract risk analysis of the EPC contract documentation, including legal and non-legal exhibits and appendices, contained in the ITT. Provided a written list of recommendations with supporting justification of contractual provisions in the ITT that should be amended, deleted, and/or inserted so as to properly mitigate the client’s risk against spurious and/or undue claims/change orders. Also provided written recommendations as to what impact a project-wide incentive program would have on the contract contingency estimates.

Power

Ontario, Canada

On behalf of the Ontario Provincial Government, evaluated delays to the restart of a power plant unit at a nuclear power electricity generation station located in northwest Ontario. The operator of the nuclear unit suffered a force majeure outage and, as a result, was entitled to balancing payments from the Ontario Government while the unit was being repaired and restarted. The provincial government was concerned that the delays that the unit operator experienced were excessively long. Evaluated whether the operator managed the unit’s outage schedule in the most efficient manner.

Water, Wastewater, Dams, and Marine

Ohio

Provided dispute resolution services for the City of Columbus’ wastewater treatment plant Project “88.” Participated in document research and discovery of 160,000 project documents. Created an as-built CPM schedule with over 1,600 activities in order to evaluate alleged delays and impacts. Performed a retrospective CPM schedule delay analysis to determine schedule delays to the critical path as well as project acceleration. Determined the validity of 141 alleged contractor claim issues with a value over $7 million. Scrutinized the cause and effect relationship between alleged impact issues and schedule delays. Assisted in damage calculations and manpower distribution analysis. Based on the team’s analysis of the facts, the City of Columbus successfully negotiated an equitable settlement of claims.
