Market Research and Management Consulting Assignments:

  • Emerging Markets Online developed a business plan for a prospective San Francisco Bay based biodiesel tank storage facility and biodiesel production enterprise. This assignment focused on a supply chain analysis of site locations for tank storage terminals, potential customers for the operation, and potential feedstocks. The business plan also included strategic support for the California Governor’s biofuels initiative, infrastructure development plans, and site location requirements for tank storage and biofuels production. EMO succeeded in one of the organizations’ primary goals to produce and deliver the business plan to the governor of California earlier in 2008 (by way of local support from a state senator) in an effort to clear site location permits, and to encourage cooperation and investment from the state. EMO advised this private company on the development of its operations, feedstock acquisition and development strategies, and government initiatives.

  • Emerging Markets Online provided business development and feedstock acquisition strategies for a prospective biodiesel operation in Texas. The assignment included evaluating the potential acquisition and merger of several yellow grease collection operations to supply a prospective biodiesel production operation.  For this project, EMO produced a comprehensive assessment of Houston, Dallas, Austin and El Paso’s yellow grease collection operations, markets, volumes, collectors, renderers, buyers, pricing, and supply-chain analyses.  This project also included an evaluation of acquiring assets and technologies for rendering restaurant-based yellow grease with high FFA and MIU content into ASTM quality biodiesel. EMO also provided a market demand survey of 12 major biodiesel producers in Houston as prospective customers and competitors for yellow grease as a biodiesel feedstock.

  • Emerging Markets Online supported a Wisconsin-based biodiesel producer in writing a business plan for a brownfield expansion by tenfold from a 4 million gallon a year operation into a 40 million gallon a year operation.  The assignment included reviewing market demand, consumption and production of biodiesel and diesel fuel in the US.  EMO also produced a series of forecasts and projections for biodiesel and diesel demand, consumption and prices through the year 2012.  The biodiesel producer utilized the forecasts in an effort to secure a second round of financing for a brownfield expansion.

  • Emerging Markets Online assisted a large consulting firm’s project in support of a national oil company in Southeast Asia on the potential demand for the development of biodiesel operations from various feed stocks in Asia, Africa, and the Americas. For this assignment, EMO Consulting produced a review of market prices and demand drivers for biodiesel feed stocks including key time-series historical data and analysis of biodiesel feedstocks in the Americas (soybean oil-CBOT), Europe (rapeseed-Rotterdam) and Asia (palm-Malaysia). This assignment included price forecasts and demand drivers for biodiesel in Europe, Americas and Asia to 2020.

Selected Oil, Gas & Utilities Consulting Assignments:

  • Emerging Markets Online advised an M&A director at a large multinational petroleum and renewable energy services company in the UK on how current LNG projects are structured and financed world-wide.  This included an analysis of the mix of private finance, commercial finance, ECA and multilateral finance, and engineering finance in current projects.  The assignment included a matrix of how current LNG projects are financed by participant and percentage.  EMO also provided details of how key LNG projects were structured and financed in Egypt, Trinidad, Qatar, Oman, Baja Mexico, and Nigeria.  Finally, we identified three major trends in the financing of LNG projects.

  • Emerging Markets Online consulted a major Russian oil and gas company on the practices of U.S. refinery operating companies. Performed a survey of refinery companies, detailing management practices, investment and purchasing activities, refinery manager roles and responsibilities, and downstream operations. Produced a report of recommendations for applying western practices in refinery management and operations to Russian firm.
