Private Power Natural Gas Utilization Definitional Mission
K&M was engaged by the World Bank to support recommendations to the Government of Bolivia for the promotion and co-financing with the private sector in the utilization of natural gas. The proposed projects attempt to increase the value-added of Bolivia’s natural gas reserves. K&M reviewed the business economics of the proposed investments and assessed the synergies and risks involved in a portfolio of projects depending on natural gas supply. The analysis served to provide a clear understanding of the business feasibility for private sponsorship of each project, given the long-term conditions of the domestic, Brazilian, regional and world energy markets.
K&M was engaged by USAID to investigate and identify private sector investment initiatives for natural gas-fired private power projects. K&M’s work included: assessing business synergies and risks of a potential gas pipeline and electricity generation plant project under a BOO/T scheme, recommending suitable level of return on equity (ROE) for the proposed project, and identifying potential sources of capital for debt and equity financing.
K&M was contracted to provide the consulting services for strategic advisory support for the development of low and high enthalpy geothermal projects in selected countries in Latin America. The consultancy will provide strategic advice regarding barriers to the development of GE and provide recommendations to reduce or dismantle these barriers. As part of this assignment, K&M will conduct analyses and provide strategic advice and recommendations for four out of the following nine countries in Latin America with untapped geothermal potential: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Peru. The four countries will be selected by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) during the execution of the consultancy.
