Frequently Asked Questions

For Newcomers

In a nutshell, our business is about providing up-to-date and independent analyses examining production processes, as well as critical data surrounding industry-related markets. So we offer:

  • Production Cost Reports. Professional, easy-to-understand reports examining the production of chemicals. Each one of those studies describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. Reports may be acquired individually, at Intratec store, or through a subscription plan.
  • Indexes & Pricing Data. Online databases, covering prices/costs of commodities and utilities across several countries, as well as plant cost indexes. Available in subscriptions

Intratec Production Cost Reports are the best-in-class studies examining production process. Each report describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available.

Reports may be acquired individually, at Intratec store, or through a subscription plan.

You can check plenty of information about each Production Cost Report - table of contents, preview, main references - in the respective report page.

It is important to highlight that all Intratec Production Cost Reports are developed according to the same methodology, and share the same structure (table of contents) and depth of content. In this context, we highly encourage you to check the full report sample, available for free in Intratec's User Area - this sample clearly demonstrates the type of information you will get from a Production Cost Report!

Finally, you may also check Intratec's report development methodology, developed along more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of chemical markets and production processes economics.

Intratec Indexes & Pricing data are online databases covering critical data surrounding industry-related markets. Currently, you can subscribe to access three online databases, as follows:

  • Chemicals Pricing Data. Online database of monthly prices of commodity chemicals, across several countries from main world regions. It presents historical prices since 2007. Short-term price forecasts are also available for selected chemicals. (more information, plans and pricing at: https://www.intratec.us/indexes-and-pricing-data/chemicals-pricing-data-subscriptions)
  • Utilities Cost Data. Online database of the historical costs of producing process engineering utilities, in several countries across the world. The cost data presented in our database represent operating costs of utility generation facilities, typically used to supply utilities to large-scale chemical production plants. (more information, plans and pricing at: https://www.intratec.us/indexes-and-pricing-data/utilities-cost-data-subscriptions)
  • Plant Construction Cost Indexes. Based on a robust methodology refined over several years, which involves constantly gathering and processing a huge amount of data from several countries, Intratec has created unique, specific indexes for estimating construction costs of chemical plants. Our Plant Cost Indexes enable scaling plants capital costs from one time period to another, in more than 16 countries. Our Location Factors simplify the conversion of known capital costs of plants located in the US to 15 other countries.
