Our Services

Economic & Fiscal Impact Studies

BSI is the source for supply chain economics, having pioneered many of the analytical and economic methods in the early 2000s. We have used our actual experience with sourcing and supply chain optimization projects to develop accurate coefficients and multipliers for modeling the value chain impacts of investment, sales, and pricing scenarios.

Value Chain Strategies

Boston Strategies International’s strategic planning engagements help suppliers identify and pursue lucrative markets that are aligned with their core strengths. Our process consists of four major steps: external analysis, internal analysis, formulation of strategic options, and implementation planning

Cost Reduction Projects

BSI offers Major Capital Project (MCP) cost estimates based on Activity-Based Costing (ABC) and benchmarks. We verify and validate by benchmarking the projects against similar projects, and by “fitting” the cost of major components to the specific engineering requirements of each project based on our proprietary “price cubes.”

Cyber Security

We offer proactive threat prevention, detection, and remediation throughout gas, oil, and power supply chains through multi-tier security certification, technical contract and subcontract analysis, contract administration, activity logging, correlation analysis, and threat hunting.

Training, Organisation & Development

BSI offers executive search; organization design and structure including job analysis, descriptions and Key Performance Indicators; certification courses; and workshops to help you build the capability you need to be competitive in today’s marketplace.

Dispute Resolution Services

Owners, operators & service providers such as law firms, investment banks, and private equity firms engage BSI to serve as an advisor and expert witness. Our dispute resolution services cover contract interpretation, contract administration, and contract dispute.

Why Choose Us

Independence

Unlike Engineering and EPC Firms, our primary goal is reducing your costs. We have no interest in unrealistically low capex numbers that prove project viability because we do not do the engineering or construction work. Nor do we have an interest in uncompetitively high capex numbers because we have no markup.

Supply Chain Expertise

Unlike Accounting/Audit Firms, we have deep functional expertise in value chain optimization and world class procurement practices. We wrote the book on this (two books, actually).

Technical Depth

Unlike Pure Strategy Consulting Firms, we have deep technical expertise in all gas and oil engineering domains, which makes our recommendations feasible and accepted by all departments.

Knowledge Transfer

Unlike Think Tanks and Software Firms, we work directly with your team onsite, transferring our know-how to you over the course of the engagement.

About Us

Our Style

Your engagement experience will benefit from the traditions and best practices developed by BSI teams over the last 15 years.
