2445 HP Sour Sales Gas Compressor Package



Due to a tight manufacturing window presented by the client, Compass presented a “Cost Plus” arrangement. This allowed major components to be procured 6-8 weeks prior to the order being awarded, and removed a lengthy bidding cycle. Compass was able to move straight into engineering and design, focusing on client specifications and design requirements. 


The completion of this project was 10-12 weeks ahead of the conventional “End User/EPCM/Vendor” procurement cycle, and an open book on estimated labour and material was initially provided to the client, with weekly progress reporting. This provided the client with cost control on a weekly basis.

  3. I think that Cost Plus arrangement benefited both parties. So it was a good call from both ends to have something like that setup.
