“Trends in Supplier Markets”

Worldwide activity in the energy sector continues at a healthy pace. Availability of material and equipment is a critical aspect in successful completion of any project. Each year Fluor Corporation surveys global markets for  materials, equipment and fabrication/construction to determine trends in availability, cost and delivery time for energy related project components. Larry’s presentation will discuss results of the most recent survey and provide insights on trends in material and equipment procurement that could impact project cost and schedule going forward into 2013 and beyond.
