Example Case Studies

  • Oil - Feasibility Study

    A metals company required a detailed analytical base from which to assess the logistical feasibility of constructing new petroleum storage and terminal facilities in the Middle East. FGE provided the client with a comprehensive analysis of refining capacities, an assessment of storage facilities and oil terminals (reviewing major existing and planned terminals and facilities, storage leasing fees in the Middle East, technical analysis of major facilities, recommendations for expansion, and recommendations of capacity and allocation of storage tanks), and product balances (detailed annual balances for demand, supply, imports and exports) for several Middle Eastern countries.

    Our analysis confirmed that a growth in products trade in the region would in fact require additional storage facilities within a particular country, and allowed the client to make a more strategically informed decision surrounding their investment opportunity.

  • Oil - Refining Margin Assessment and Forecast

    A private equity company wanted FGE to create a bespoke refinery margin for them so they could analyze margins from a particular refinery in Europe. FGE was able to develop a model for the client that looked at the impact of crude oil freight, the benefit of product pricing, benefit of premium and niche products over the standard more fungible products, and the benefits due from the refinery’s “cost optimization programme”. FGE provided an historic analysis to cover 2015 and 2016.

    As a result of the project work FGE carried out, the client was able to clearly determine whether or not to proceed with a large investment in a particular refinery and also identify where the sources of value were.

  • Natural Gas/LNG - Strategic Advice

    A gas company required strategic advice on the market allocation of mid/long-term, short-term, and spot LNG during the period 2017-2021 in order to help formulate its business plan, which includes a LNG procurement and investment plan. FGE provided the client with a comprehensive look at the fundamentals picture over the short/medium/long-term, identified where available volumes were coming from and how realistic they are to supply the Asian market as spot/short-term volumes, and identified the sellers and their likely marketing strategies for these volumes.

  • NGLs - Market Feasibility Study

    A German trader required a detailed analysis on the feasibility of a new refrigerated LPG import terminal to be used as break-bulk facility in Southeast Asia. FGE provided the client with a comprehensive analysis of LPG supply and demand in the region (detailed annual balance for production, demand, import and exports for Asian countries), a breakdown of the current import infrastructure, complete with a cost comparison of an onshore import facility versus potential usage of floating storage vessels.

  • NGLs - Commercialization of Volumes

    An Australian producer wanted to properly understand their potential options in marketing LPG and condensates output from various liquids streams associated to their gas assets in Australia. FGE provided the client with a detailed understanding of both the LPG and condensates markets (major importers, global trade flows, pricing structures from various producers), a lowdown on what competitors are doing and any policy, environmental and regulations that will impact their pricing potentials.
