Cost functions represent an “average” refinery, which of course does not exist as an actual plant but is useful in developing conceptual cost estimates in early stages of assessment and design.
The process contingency accounts for the level of maturity of a particular process or component within the plant. It attempts to quantify the additional capital costs expected to be incurred in a real project as the process matures .
Capital cost estimates for chemical process plants are often based on an estimate of the purchase cost of the major equipment items required for the process, the other costs being estimated as factors of the equipment cost.

the Plant Operations cost center. C. Project Estimate Fee: Project estimate fee is a flat $500 assessment to projects in excess of $20,000. The fee is charged to the school or department immediately upon request for an estimate for a future project. If the project moves forward, the estimate fee will be deducted from the 3% project management fee.

ESTIMATING PLANT INVESTMENT (November 2005) SRIC’s Process Economics Program provides plant investment estimates for a wide range of chemicals, polymers, and refinery processes. The design and procurement methods used in these process industries have gone through a revolution with the growth of turnkey procurement,
For the early stages of the design process, it is often necessary to make quick capital cost estimates of total plant cost. The accuracy of these order of magnitude estimates are usually within ±50% accuracy. The quickest and most often employed order of magnitude process scales the cost of the new design based on the cost of similar processes.
