Project Governance and Risk Management

Capital projects are exposed to several governance variations caused by internal and external risks. Weak governance might generate a fragile and unsecure environment, exposing financial institutions, owners and board members to uncertain results. External risks can also increase the challenges of a project implementation. The CP&I specialists apply 20+ years of experience to anticipate, mitigate and solve risks as well generate opportunities to optimize controls and avoid deviations within a technical and sceptical profile.

Asset Optimization and Decommissioning

Asset management requires the balancing of costs, opportunities and risks against the targeted asset performance. Additionally, it enables the application of analytical approaches towards managing an asset over the different stages of its lifecycle – starting with the asset conception, through to its disposal, and includes the managing of any potential post-disposal liabilities. The CP&I team combines finance and engineering knowledge and provides support in areas such as reliability, maintenance, cost efficiency and technical due diligence.
