Our solution offers access to project cost estimating insights through analytics, bespoke reports, and estimating modules focusing on driving transparency and informed decision-making through cost estimation of engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects within the energy industry.  

Leveraging our extensive research of project cost drivers and outcomes, our estimating solutions cover projects ranging from traditional oil and gas (offshore production facilities, offshore decommissioning, offshore and onshore pipelines, conventional and shale wells), energy transition (carbon capture and storage), and renewable energy (offshore wind, onshore wind, and solar). 

Through the use of our DynamiX framework, users are able to model upcoming projects with custom design, execution, and cost bases to understand the impacts of decision-making during the project development process. 

Our Cost Estimating solution is now integrated with FutureOn's FieldTwin

Accelerate project deliveries and cost transparency in the early development phases of your project

Accurate cost estimates are crucial for successful project evaluation in offshore oil and gas. Rystad Energy's Cost Estimating Solution and FutureOn's FieldTwin are now integrated to offer a powerful combination of geospatial field development, dynamic visualization, and cost estimation. Get a clear view of project costs within a seamless workflow from appraisal through later project phases.

This integration is set to accelerate field development in offshore oil and gas by addressing current workflow inefficiencies, breaking down data silos, and facilitating parallel field concept and cost iteration.

Main features:

  • Seamless integration with concept development: share data in real-time, enabling up-to-date cost estimation directly from a FieldTwin project
  • Customizable P50 cost estimates: gain insights and export reports based on P50 cost estimates using custom design, execution, and cost bases
  • Inflation-linked forecasting: foecast inflationary impacts on project CAPEX, vital for financial planning and risk assessment

How can this help you

Energy Companies

Drive transparent and effective decision-making and project development through:

  • Understanding P50 cost estimates for corporate planning

  • Forecasting cost impacts of inflation on project capex based on project schedule and Rystad forecasted market dynamics

  • Evaluating cost impacts of design and execution trade-offs during project development


Bolster tender opportunity evaluation and improve project planning and performance through:

  • Identifying gaps, supplementing, and comparing third-party views with internal cost estimates

  • Understanding regional cost drivers in order to plan and improve execution strategies

  • Identifying key areas for cost reduction and cost avoidance


Quickly determine the value of project portfolios by:

  • Modeling upcoming projects across upstream oil and gas, low carbon, and renewable sectors

  • Forecasting exposure to risks and opportunities in various aspects of project development for upcoming transactions

  • Comparing project capex, opex, and economic profiles of projects within potential investment opportunities
