An unmatched midstream valuation partner to minimize your tax liability
Valuing Midstream Assets: Unique Challenges
Midstream assets encompass complex infrastructures with interconnected systems and equipment. Understanding the intricate operations, technical components, and interdependencies of these assets is vital for accurate valuation. We analyze things such as rated capacity, utilization, and create our own asset depreciation schedules internally.
Assessing the income generated by energy properties relies on analyzing factors such as capacity utilization, throughput volumes, transportation rates, and market demand. Accurate income forecasting is crucial for valuing these properties correctly.
Achieving Fair Valuations: Our Approach
For over 45 years, our firm has cultivated extensive connections and partnerships with these local assessors where energy assets are located, fostering open lines of communication and trust. There isn’t another firm in the energy industry that covers more of the industry or has more properties under appeal than our company. Establishing strong relationships with local government officials is crucial in working together to achieve a fair market value. These relationships enable us to navigate complex negotiations, present compelling cases, and advocate effectively for our clients’ interests.
We conduct a detailed evaluation of energy properties, considering asset complexity, regulatory factors, income analysis, cost analysis less obsolescence, and other relevant factors. This comprehensive assessment ensures an accurate valuation that reflects the property’s true worth.
We leverage extensive market research and perform comparative analyses of similar midstream-type properties in the industry in either the county, or surrounding areas. By benchmarking against comparable properties and assessing their assessed values, operational performance, and market conditions, we advocate for fair valuations based on accurate market data. This also leads to our equal and uniform valuation approach when we can utilize this method.
Our team stays updated with the latest regulatory guidelines and compliance requirements specific to the energy industry. We are extremely well connected to the local assessor community and appraisal firms they utilize. By ensuring compliance with reporting obligations and utilizing accepted valuation methods, we help our clients achieve fair and accurate property valuations.
