 "It is well recognized that the decisions made during the early stages of an investment have the greatest impact on the ultimate business outcome.

Unfortunately, it is also the time when the least amount of information is available. It is this juxtaposition of the criticality of making the correct decisions, and the absence of detailed information on which to base them, that creates the challenge Select has been designed to answer."

Andy Cole
Global Director – Select

 Through its focus on the critical early phases of projects, Select:

  • Adds technical definition, thus reducing technical risk
  • Optimizes the opportunity and maximizes the inherent value
  • Creates the business case and assesses the probable costs
  • Secures the necessary approvals and prepares for the Deliver phase


advises asset owners, operators, investors, financial institutions and governments.
