Major Projects

Tuchman performs the majority of his appraisals for major Russian petroleum companies and their subsidiaries. His work with these companies includes close analyses of Russian oil and gas law, markets and product sales arrangements, and company operations. On projects in other areas of the world, Tuchman analyzes the revenues that are negotiated through concession systems, production sharing agreements, and service contracts.

Economic evaluations performed by Tuchman have been used by clients to negotiate acquisitions and divestitures, to secure development capital from financial institutions, and internally for asset management and project prioritization. He has collaborated with multidisciplinary client teams internationally to build comprehensive economic models for these purposes and to support other specific analyses.
