In the May 2013 edition of the CIM Magazine, Ian Ewing interviews Enthalpy’s Claudio Martinez for his article titled, No Illusions – In tough times, focusing on project definition and scoping is essential for moving operations forward.

Unfortunately, in boom times of the last decade, there was a tendency to rush through prefeasibility and feasibility. “There was such great pressure to develop a new project very quickly, because the commodity prices were so high, that they started to take shortcuts,” says Claudio Martinez, managing director of Enthalpy Consulting. “And because of that poor definition, when they were in the middle of the project, they found they didn’t do all the proper engineering, follow the proper processes, and now they have to spend more money.”
