Overseeing supply chain management to prevent budget blowouts

Raja Sahulhameed
Major capital projects are fundamental to organic growth in resources sectors. When calculating the value of a major project, CFOs have traditionally provided a fixed capital cost to the market, but the cost of megaprojects is becoming increasingly difficult to estimate, which is causing budget blowouts. Supply constraints for building materials and metals, a decrease in global crude oil supplies, high freight costs, and labor shortages are all contributing to uncertainty with the planning and delivery of megaprojects. As a result, organizational leaders need to become more involved in supply chain management in the current volatile market of inflated costs.

What our clients say

“Over the life of the project, Hatch and Hatch Indisa personnel were not only very responsive but also helpful and reasonable in their approach to the many changes that occurred. I personally attribute this to the multicultural team, and to the leadership that was associated to the project. Cooperation and seeking the best outcome has always been the goal and was, in fact, the rule for this project.”

Michael X. Schlumpberger | Executive General Manager Operations, Highfield Resources Limited

“Hatch was able to successfully adapt to whatever was required of the team and was able to deliver a very successful project amid some challenging conditions.”

Mr. Iggy Tan | Chief Executive Officer, Galaxy Resources (Jiangsu) Co. Ltd.

“Special recognition goes to all involved for making this transition virtually seamless...I know there were many long hours and critical moments. Your perseverance has paid off.”
