The amount and timing of the capex spend are critical model inputs and are therefore crucial to the decision making process. Capex modelling has a huge impact on value creation and the future profitability of the project.
As a project is developed and engineered, the accuracy and level of detail of the capex estimates and the schedule of spend evolve. S-curves are widely used for modelling project capex profiles.
Topics covered in this include:
- Project decision making
- Estimating CAPEX
- Modelling the S-curve
- “What-ifs” & the changes in CAPEX / Schedule
- Practical examples of S-curve modelling
