Due Diligence & Asset Transfer Advisory

Due Diligence & Asset Transfer Advisory

Have you considered potential asset integrity liabilities when conducting Mergers, Acquisitions, or Divestments?

The Challenge

The energy industry is characterised by large investments, major technological challenges, and significant commercial and political complexity, exposing owners to financial, safety and environmental risk. It is well understood that a degree of diligence, whether at portfolio, project or asset level is required to quantify this risk and ensure that both the vendor and buyer are protected from any nasty surprises or hidden liabilities.

The recent trend of divesting aged assets to ‘new era’ operators who promise to operate a leaner, more commercially viable business model for asset life extension has resulted in capital intensive assets changing hands at what would otherwise have been the end of their design life.

What does due diligence mean and what do we assess?

Due diligence in commercial transactions is not a new process, however, it is often biased towards financial and legal liabilities, rather than demonstrating the performance, reliability, and integrity of physical assets. The reality is that both are needed.

AIE's approach to Due Diligence assessments recommend that the purchaser satisfies themselves as to ‘the condition of tangible assets’ and it is our view that the purchaser must have confidence that the major capital equipment items have an adequate and quantified remaining life.

What makes AIE different?

We have the practical experience that others don't the design, operation, maintenance & inspection of high risk capital-intensive assets. AIE believes that some of the most successful due diligence assessments comprise teams with both the engineering skills required to understand the asset, as well as in-depth assessment and audit experience. Site-based inspection and engineering review by skilled discipline engineers is critical to a competent assessment of asset condition and remining life, while the financiers can bring this to life with capital projections for ongoing operations, reinstatement / insurance costs and a quantified decommissioning liability.

By appointing AIE as your due diligence partner, we can professionally and competently:

  • Physically inspect and provide an accurate engineering assessment of current asset condition
  • Provide detailed fitness for service assessments of known defects
  • Provide technical guidance on mechanical damage and corrosion mitigation in aged assets
  • Estimate remaining life based on an in-depth identification of current and future damage mechanisms
  • Provide risk-based guidance and practical operational knowledge on the operation, maintenance, inspection, and repair of such assets
  • Optimise future maintenance and inspection burden based on an independent assessment of asset risk
  • Assess the management systems, procedures and technical codes that have been applied to the asset in the past and review the suitability of these for the future
  • Provide a comprehensive assessment of compliance to applicable health, safety and environmental Codes, Standards and Regulations
  • Predict future CAPEX and OPEX spend based on current and predicted asset condition
  • Increase critical equipment reliability and uptime
