Oil, Gas & Petrochemical

CCi experts have worked on onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities for decades.

We have experience in refineries and other mid-stream facilities as well as production and energy generating facilities on shore utilising downstream technologies.

Sector Background

The downstream Oil and Gas sector operates in a similar fashion to power generation and other heavy  industrial processes. All of these require sector-specific expert witnesses who can show past experience of working on these complex projects. CCi experts understand downstream production, they know the sector and they understand its particular needs.

How CCi Can Help

Delays in downstream projects can be financially damaging. Most developments will play a part in producing, storing or transporting products for market. Any delay to completion of a plant may mean lost or deferred revenues. We have experienced delay and quantum experts to hand who can react quickly with no learning curve.

Our Expertise In This Sector

CCi experts have worked on refineries, chemical plants, plastics plants, waste-energy plants and more. Our experts are familiar with the needs of both on-plot and off-plot requirements. We can also assist in devising methodologies for recovering deferred revenues.

Scope of Work

As well as expert witness services, CCi is ready to advise on the technical and project control clauses that assist lawyers in drafting O&G contracts that manage and diminish project risk.

CCi Experts Have Experience of Downstream O&G Cases

CCi employs O&G experts who have testified in the courts and in international arbitrations across the globe. CCi experts have experienced cross-examination and joint-expert testimony on cases involving major global producers.

Clients And Case Studies

At the procurement stage of an Oils Sands Project, worked with the Owner’s Supply Chain and Legal departments over two years to prepare requests for proposal and draft, negotiate and resolve construction contracts.

Sector Specific Understanding Of Issues and Solutions

Downstream delays and changes need to be assessed and valued accurately, so an existing knowledge of the sector is both necessary and economical for the client. CCi has the systems and the experts you need for downstream conflicts.
