Our pioneering Cost Reports provide detailed analysis of historical data, plus up to 15-year site-focussed forecasts.

The data underlying the cost service comes from AME's site-by-site analysis and assessment of individual projects.

The combination of these production and cost parameters form the foundations of our unique cost benchmarking services.

The amalgamation of this essential data provides a comprehensive commentary on the operational changes within the industry and the ramifications for costs and returns.
