INDEPENDENT POWER PROJECT FEASIBILITY, SIBERIA
Muse Stancil advised an investor in the feasibility of an independent power project in Siberia. The first 48 MW block of power generation facility is currently in development with an additional 24 MW to be added at a future date.
STRATEGIC PLANNING, U.S. DEREGULATED ELECTRIC POWER MARKETS
In response to newly deregulated wholesale electric power markets and non-discriminatory transmission access, performed a study to determine future marketing opportunities for a non-regulated power producer. Study included a profit analysis by customer segment, analysis of competitive position in the generation market based on fuel type, and estimates of cash and book production costs.
COGENERATION PROJECT NEGOTIATIONS
Currently assisting four different U.S. West Coast and U.S. Gulf Coast refineries on developing new third-party gas-fired cogeneration facilities. Muse Stancil has developed Request For Proposal(s), assisted in competitive bidding processes with third-party project developers, evaluated bids, and negotiated the definitive agreements between the refinery company(s) and the success bidder(s). The project sizes range from 400-600 MW in generating capacity and 400,000 to 1,000,000 pounds of steam per hour.
POWER GENERATION FUEL UTILIZATION STUDY, MIDDLE EAST
Muse Stancil evaluated the technical and economic feasibility of substituting heavy fuel oil for a stabilized crude oil fuel for a portion of the existing electric generation capacity in a 5,000 MW government-owned electric power system.
INDEPENDENT ENGINEER, ARGENTINA
Muse Stancil served as the independent engineer for the unregulated subsidiary of a major U.S. investor-owned electric utility in the acquisition and upgrading of a 517 MW thermal electric power generation facility in Argentina.
REFINERY COGENERATION FACILITY
Evaluated the cogeneration options available to a U.S. Gulf Coast refiner in conjunction with the client’s coker expansion and refinery upgrading project. Analyzed the potential cost savings and economics under different financing structures of wholly-owned and joint venture cogeneration plants employing different technologies to produce electric power, steam, and purified hydrogen for refinery usage.
