Cost Estimating Lead in Calgary Alberta, Canada

Reporting to the Project Services Manager, the Cost Estimating Lead will deliver a high-quality Type 3 cost estimate for Phase 2 of a large LNG Project for the project to take FID.

The Project consists of mainly Greenfield, some Brownfield and third party (gas transport pipeline compressor stations) scope. This role will need to incorporate project complexity factors into project and ensure that all relevant country and regional factors are considered, especially related to Canadian contracting market.
The LNG Plant estimate will be based on an Open Book Estimate, negotiated with the Phase 1 EPC contractor that will be converted in a lump sum. Both client and the EPC contractor have large commercial interests in the outcome of this negotiation. The Cost Estimating Lead is a key position in ensuring that the client has deep understanding of the Open Book Estimates (in terms of quantities, pricing and allowances). Phase 2 benefits from replication of Phase 1 and estimate needs to incorporate replication savings, which are both realistic and defendable to senior management and Joint Venture Partners.
