Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

Part A of the R-PPTA will require approximately 11 person-months of international consultants and 21 person-months of national consultants input in the following critical areas (i) technical due diligence of the CCUS pilot, including the capture, compression and liquefaction plant, (ii) due diligence of EOR and CO2 geological sequestration plans, (iii) EIA of the CCUS pilot project, (iv) environmental audit of the oilfield, (v) institutional set-up for CCUS operation and monitoring and verification structure, (vi) economic and financial due diligence, and (vii) financial management and procurement capacity assessment. Specifically, the following international experts shall be engaged (i) pre-combustion carbon capture expert (3 person-months), (ii) environment expert (6.0 person-months), and (iii) environmental auditor (2 person-months). In addition, the following national CCUS experts shall be engaged (i) pre-combustion carbon capture expert (3.0 person-months), (ii) expert for EOR (4.0 person-months), (iii) expert for geological sequestration of CO2 (4.0 person-months), (iv) environment expert (4 person-months), (v) economist (2.0 person-months), (vi) financial analyst (2.0 person-months), and (vii) procurement specialist (2.0 person-months).

The due diligence of a CCUS pilot project is an innovative, complex and highly specialized assignment. As this will be the first CCUS pilot project for a coal-fired power plant to be supported by a multilateral development bank, it is essential that the quality of the due diligence will be excellent and will have model character. Particularly the environmental safeguards need to be ensured in this complex project. Therefore, ADB will select and engage consultants through a consulting firm in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time) using the quality- and cost-based selection method (with a quality-cost ratio of 90:10). The consulting firm will be required to submit a simplified technical proposal covering all aspects of the terms of reference. For the due diligence of the EOR and the carbon sequestration plan ADB will engage the Petroleum University of China through the single source selection method in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time) as the university and has exclusive access to the data. The way of engagement of the University, either as a subcontract to the selected firm or with a direct contract with ADB will be firmed up. A peer review of the EOR and storage site due diligence by an international expert will be organized.

For Part B of the R-PPTA resource persons will be engaged to support the knowledge dissemination workshop. They will present lessons learned and good practice guidelines based on the experiences gained from the CCUS pilot project implementation. The resource persons are likely to be the same consultants as engaged under part A and who developed important knowledge products of experiences
