Engineering Design

BLUE offers a wide range of engineering and consulting services and can provide customized solutions to meet your Project’s needs. Our services typically fit into the following categories:

Project Feasibility

During the early stages of a Project, BLUE can help developers define the early engineering parameters of a Project, help evaluate engineering options, and help create a contracting and execution strategy to ensure the most optimal path is selected which yields Project success.

Typical activities include:

  • Site Selection Studies and Evaluations
  • Technology and Capacity Option Studies
  • Environmental Assessments
  • Preliminary Engineering Design
  • Permitting Studies
  • Initial Capital Cost and Operating Expense Estimating
  • Initial Project Schedules
  • Contracting and Execution Strategy Development


Once a Project has confirmed feasibility and defined the contracting and execution strategy, BLUE can assist with development of the preliminary Front End Engineering Design (Pre-FEED). To further advance the design, additional Front End Engineering Design (FEED) deliverables can be developed.

Typical engineering deliverables include:

  • Design Basis
  • Design Philosophies
  • Design Codes and Standards
  • Block Flow Diagrams
  • Process Flow Diagrams
  • Heat and Material Balances
  • Utility Flow Diagrams
  • Plot Plan
  • Siting Analysis
  • Major Equipment List
  • Mechanical and Civil Specifications
  • Hazard Detection and Control Drawings
  • Firewater Layouts
  • Hazard Identification (HAZID) Studies
  • Spill Containment Sizing and Drawings
  • Project Schedules
  • Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs)
  • Equipment Data Sheets
  • Electrical Area (Hazardous) Classification Drawings
  • Fire Protection Evaluations
  • Security Drawings
