The current economic situation, as well as the lack of highly profitable reserves, make more attention to new investment projects. It is necessary to estimate correctly the costs of developing new assets to make the right management and technical decisions in order to maximize the effect of invested funds, involving low-margin and hard-to-recover reserves.

 

Goals and targets

Cost engineering aims to improve the consistency of capital and operating cost evaluation at the early stages of project implementation.

1.     Make checklist of existing methods and different software of cost evaluation at the early stages of project implementation.

2.     Define ways how to improve the consistency of capital and operating cost evaluation

3.     Create the “Cost model” bringing together the opportunity to evaluate capital and operating costs in order to make comprehensive cost assessment.

4.     Achieve high level of automation - implement cost engineering tools on special IT platform

 

Cost models

The analysis of cost software show that existing cost software do not provide the necessary level of accuracy. The cost software has been developed in Gazprom Neft since 2014.

 

Results and conclusion

The developing tools of the capital and operating costs assessment do not have analogues in Russia. Today company Gazprom Neft develops first-of kind software in the oil and gas industry. The first results of utilizing cost tools show the need of total costs analysis for making effective business decisions during the project life. As a result every correct solution from the issue based on the comprehensive cost assessment help to achieve the company strategic goal to produce one hundred million tons of oil.

 

The most important results are:

1.      The software analysis of cost engineering tools was carried out.  There are no special costs tools for detailed calculation.

2.      It was decided to develop their own costs tools based on the decomposing method. This method improves the quality of costs calculations.

3.      The capital expenditures’ assessment tool is developed and used during the concept design.

4.      The operating expenditures’ assessment tool is developed too with detailed cost units.

5.      The potential effect of utilizing these tools can achieve more than 1.5 billion of rubles just from.

1.        6.         In the near future costs tools will be realized on the special IT platform which gives opportunity to improve the accuracy of costs assessment.
