Energia del Pacifico 380 MW Power Station
K&M was engaged to provide technical and commercial due diligence for a potential investor in a 380 MW Combined Cycle Gas-fired IPP which will use LNG from a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU). K&M’s work included an analysis of the local and regional power markets, an assessment of the project’s dispatch and sales, forecasts of spot market prices, and a detailed review of major contracts, including the Power Purchase Agreement. K&M’s analysis was integrated into the financial model of the project and used for the client’s valuation and acquisition bid.
K&M works as on-call advisors to provide a range of PPP support services to the governments of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. K&M’s work includes: screening proposed projects, assessing the viability of candidate PPP projects, reviewing or drafting requests for proposals and terms of reference for advisors, developing budgets for advisory services, reviewing deliverables from advisors, advising on PPP policies and regulation (for example, contingent liabilities), and on-the-job and classroom training to build capacity for PPP unit officials.
The objective of this study is to estimate the cost of LNG transported in truck from an existing LNG import terminal in Panama to large energy users in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
K&M developed a cost model to estimate the cost per MMBtu of transporting small amounts of LNG from an LNG Terminal to each of the countries using LNG trucks and trailers, and multimodal transport (by road and sea) in ISO containers. K&M provided recommendations on the optimal option for transporting LNG. The study also reviewed risks related to relevant trade, tax, and environmental regulations that could affect the cost and/or time of transporting the LNG.
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.
