Investments in the world of oil and gas come at a significant expense. Therefore, before a decision is made, one must be certain of the potential risks and benefits involved. To assist in these matters, OPES has custom-built a general cash-flow model designed to optimise schedule, rates, economics and minimise costs. In so doing, it also identifies the critical parameters which quantify risk. These are available to our clients, so they can ascertain the upside and risks of their projects.
The model input are schedules and costs of individual project components. The parameters are imported to the model through an easy-to-use graphical interface. Project schedules are automatically generated based on the input data. Cash flow rates, tax and royalties are calculated and summaries automatically generated. The package is also capable of performing incremental economics, which is necessary when comparing different development options.
Our team has extensive experience in performing scoping analysis for a wide range of development types, size and locations. Often these preliminary evaluations prove to be an invaluable tool in identifying the optimal development and associated costs. Subsequent detailed analyses are required only for those few cases identified by the scoping work.
