Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer a free trial of a paid subscription plan?

Anyone interested in our plant cost indexes and location factors can check plenty of free samples. We present, for every index or location factor in our database, a 24-month historical series as sample.

So we believe that anyone interested in Intratec indexes and location factors is able to decide whether or not to subscribe by checking the free samples available, in such a way that we do not offer free trials of subscription plans.

I am interested in just an specific index/location factor...Can I subscribe to access just the data I need, for a discounted fee?

No, you can not. We offer no subscription plans for accessing specific index(es) or location factor(s) from our database. You must necesseraly choose among the subscription plans available in the page of the chemical of your interest.

How are the indexes/location factors presented calculated?

Intratec plant cost indexes and location factors are based on prices trends of fundamental components of a chemical plant construction such as labor, material, energy and inflation, from several countries.

A series of specific and general price indexes, evaluated by Intratec consultant's as fundamental for the construction of chemical plants, are combined to reasonably reflect their relative importance. In other words, the weighting of such values provides a historical comparison of generic chemical plants capital costs.

How often are the data to which I subscribed refreshed? When is such data updated?

The plant cost indexes and location factors presented are refreshed on a monthly basis, as new information is obtained. However, it is important to highlight that the frequency which specific regional data is actually updated depends on how often official sources from countries from those regions report that data.

In this context, by the end of each month - typically in the second or third week -, Intratec team updates indexes and location factors with data of the previous month.

If I subscribe, how will I access that data? Will you send me reports?

Subscribers access the data they have subscribed for through online charts presented at the respective index/location factor page, at Intratec website. Naturally, the subscriber must be logged in Intratec website (using the same email and password of the subscription) to access the data.
