WHAT WE'VE DONE
ADIL supported the client and its partners in preparation for the Shallow Water Block licencing rounds Call 1.1 and 1.2 in Mexico. These were the first international bidding rounds for blocks in Mexican waters. The work was used to value the blocks and present to our client a confident case for bidding for the blocks and presentation to the board and investors.
ADIL used its own in house experience and expertise in conjunction with our accelerated conceptual engineering (ACE) methodology and a software modelling tool to produce technically sound concepts and deterministic estimates for the blocks that the client had high graded from those on offer. ADIL refined these to derive workable full life facilities solutions and then derive equipment lists, weight estimates and installation methodologies which were used to produce cost estimates.
The facilities definition and cost estimates which were delivered as part of the process are engineering-based. This meant that our client moved through the decision making process with fewer unknowns and decisions outstanding, less engineering costs and increased confidence in comparison to traditional assumption based cost estimates.
In total over 30 concepts for a variety of blocks were developed and various sensitivities run on those, including a review of area development prospects and onshore options such as power generation and ERD.
