Project Feasibility

Project Feasibility is critical in the energy industry. Whether a multi-party syndicate or a single-entity developer, capital allocation typically limits project development. Credible evaluation of project potential is often the difference between completion of a successful project and a project that fails to get off the ground. Pearson Adair & Co. consultants have decades of project evaluation experience and we maintain an in-house knowledge base to support project assessment. If required, we can also develop customized market supply/demand and price forecasts to evaluate energy sector opportunities. Our professionals provide the full range of contract support services from initial project screening to detailed cash flow analyses including equity and debt financing.

For detailed cash flow modeling and independent project feasibility review, Pearson Adair can bring to bear the combined commercial, engineering, and financial expertise to document the feasibility of projects in any segment of the energy industry. We also provide risk-based assessments utilizing state-of-the-art evaluation tools including Monte Carlo analyses. We have evaluated onshore and offshore upstream developments, midstream projects including pipelines/plants, and downstream projects including refining/terminals/petrochemicals/electrical generation. When you need credible project feasibility analyses, Pearson Adair has reputation, knowledge base, and depth of direct experience to provide the independent assessments necessary for financial due diligence or the development of project marketing materials. As a developer or potential stakeholder, our professionals can provide insight and advice before final financial commitments are executed. Whatever your needs, Pearson Adair can provide the evaluation services necessary to achieve your project goals.
