Definition: The acronym “EPC” stands for “Engineering Procurement and Construction”. Sometimes “EPCC” may be used for “Engineering Procurement, Construction and Commissioning”. In both cases, it refers to the execution phase following the “FEED” during which the engineering companies design all the details of the project for execution, proceed to the procurement of all the equipment and services under the name of the End User and finally construct the new plant including the commissioning and start up, until the hand over to the operator. The operator may be the End User himself or a JV with multiple End Users being involved. Because of the level of detail requested for the execution this phase may also be called “Detailed design”.

Comments: During the “EPC” phase, the engineering companies may work with different types of contract, but always under a close follow up of the End User. In practice it means that the nominated “EPC”.  By extension “EPC” is used for the engineering companies executing “EPC” contracts. Note that all the engineering companies are not necessary “EPC” as some of them focus on the “FEED” or multiple services but the “EPC” contracts as they require different expertise and financial dimension.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be actually something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!
