EPC Project Management

Experience how TALKE is revolutionizing the petrochemical industry with tailor-made solutions for greenfield projects.


The global petrochemical market reached approximately USD 616 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3% from 2024 to 2030, surpassing USD 1 trillion by 2030. This growth is driven by increasing demand from end-use industries such as packaging, automotive, and construction, according to insights from Grand View Research and Fortune Business Insights.

Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region leads the petrochemical market, holding over 51% of the global market share in 2023. This dominance is attributed to rapid industrialization, urbanization, and a booming consumer goods sector. Key contributors to this growth include China and India, driven by their expanding manufacturing capabilities and substantial investments in petrochemical infrastructure (Fortune Business Insights).

The rising demand for petrochemicals is fuelled by the increasing consumption of consumer goods, advancements in automotive technologies, and the need for durable and lightweight materials across various industries. Consequently, the petrochemical industry is witnessing a significant surge in new greenfield projects, driven by global demand for petrochemical products and ongoing technological advancements.

Currently, numerous greenfield projects are underway globally. For example, Dow is investing USD 8.9 billion in a net-zero petrochemical plant project in Canada, set to start construction in 2024. Similarly, Saudi Aramco and Sinopec have announced major investments in new petrochemical complexes in China, reflecting the robust demand and strategic expansion efforts in the sector.

Given the complexity and capital-intensive nature of these projects, meticulous planning, execution, and management are essential to ensure their success. As companies seek to optimize their operations and reduce costs, the role of efficient Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) services becomes paramount. TALKE, a leader in this domain, offers comprehensive solutions designed to maximize efficiency and deliver exceptional results for new greenfield projects.

TALKE’s Expertise in EPC Project Management

In today's fast-paced industrial landscape, the construction of logistic terminals demands an intricate balance of expertise, precision, and adaptability. TALKE Engineering Solutions and Project Department is at the forefront of delivering comprehensive contractual services for Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) of logistic terminals, particularly in greenfield projects. 

Our diverse offerings include EPC, EPCM, EP, EP+, and PMC models, each tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients. Here’s an in-depth look at what each of these services entails:

EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) Solutions

At TALKE, our EPC solutions epitomize our commitment to assuming full responsibility for your entire project. From the initial stages of meticulous engineering to the procurement of top-grade equipment and the turn-key construction of the logistic terminal, we manage every aspect with a promise of excellence. Clients can choose between a lump-sum approach, which offers cost certainty, or an open-book approach for greater transparency and flexibility. Our EPC model ensures that projects are completed on time, within budget, and to the highest quality standards, giving clients peace of mind and a streamlined project execution.

EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management)

For clients who prefer to retain ownership and maintain a higher degree of involvement in their projects, our EPCM model is the perfect fit. TALKE specializes in engineering, procurement, and construction management, providing expert oversight while allowing clients to stay closely connected to their project's progress. This model ensures that projects are managed with efficiency and strict adherence to budget constraints, while our experienced team oversees the critical aspects of project execution. Clients benefit from our management acumen and strategic guidance without relinquishing control over their projects. 

EP (Engineering and Procurement) Solutions

Our EP solutions focus specifically on the engineering and detailed design aspects, coupled with the procurement of necessary equipment and materials. This model is ideal for clients who wish to take a more hands-on approach during the construction phase of their projects. By providing professional support in engineering and procurement, TALKE enables clients to drive the construction process while ensuring that all design and material requirements are met to the highest standards. This balanced approach offers the perfect blend of professional expertise and client autonomy.

EP+ (Engineering and Procurement Plus)

Taking our EP solutions a step further, the EP+ model includes all the benefits of engineering and procurement services with the added advantage of construction execution support on a consultancy basis. This customized approach is designed to provide clients with enhanced flexibility and additional professional guidance during the construction phase. TALKE's consultants work closely with clients to oversee construction activities, ensuring that projects are executed efficiently and effectively, adhering to all specifications and timelines.

PMC (Project Management Consultancy)

Our PMC services encompass comprehensive support for a wide range of greenfield projects. TALKE’s Project Management Consultancy is equipped to partner with clients from the very inception of a project through to its successful completion. Our team of experts manages every aspect of the project lifecycle, including planning, design, procurement, construction, and commissioning. By offering strategic insights and robust management practices, we ensure that projects are delivered on time, within budget, and to the highest standards of quality. Our PMC model is designed to provide clients with the confidence and support needed to navigate the complexities of large-scale projects.

FEED - Front End Engineering Design

Front End Engineering Design (FEED) is a critical phase in any EPC project, providing the foundation for successful project execution. TALKE’s front end engineering design services ensure that all aspects of a project are meticulously planned and designed, resulting in efficient and cost-effective project outcomes. Our FEED design services focus on creating detailed engineering designs that meet the specific needs of our clients. By employing advanced design techniques and tools, we ensure that all project requirements are addressed during the design phase.

Additionally, our FEED design engineering services combine detailed engineering design with comprehensive project planning, ensuring that all aspects of the project are meticulously detailed and planned before construction begins. This approach not only minimizes risks but also optimizes project timelines and budgets.
