FEED/FEL/Scope Development

One of the best predictions of project success is the level of front end loading (FEL) achieved at the authorization of a project. However, reaching this level of definition can be a difficult task. Our clients can depend on our ability to produce results and provide quantitative measurements to assist them in executing a successful capital project.

Most of our clients have management systems and procedures that define how capital projects are handled. While there may be variations in the structure and terminology built into these systems, the phases and associated deliverables are typically similar. It is well established that development of a good front end engineering design (FEED) is critical to achieving successful completion of a capital project. By integrating conceptual design and FEED activities, projects can achieve a significantly higher productivity and schedule compression. The FEED phase ultimately offers optimum opportunity for implementing best design practices. Chemic has the personnel and the project knowledge to aid clients and their project teams in achieving these practices.

Chemic is accustomed to working within the framework of individual client capital management systems. Our early participation in this process facilitates efficient and effective engineering services across the sequential phases of project execution. Initial project scope development work may include design basis development and feasibility studies. A conceptual design package and an order of magnitude cost estimate may be the prime deliverables from this early phase. We have the skills required to organize, plan and execute FEED and FEL for capital projects of all sizes.
