Abu Dhabi June 2010

Oil and Gas Forum Debate

Presenter: Salah J. Al Bufalah

EPC vs EPCM

  • EPC and EPCM contracting are both very prevalent types of contracts within the construction industry.  Dependent on the level of risk the Owner of a project is willing to accept, budget constraints, and the Owner’s organization core competencies, will determine which method is best for their project.

  • EPC contracting tends to be slightly more expensive, to the Owner, due to the shift of project risk away from the Owner and to the EPC Contractor.

    This however was not evident in the latest EPC tenders we have seen.
