Methanol Development Project Success Story
The Energy CFO® packaged a scalable outsourced Vertical CFO Solution™ for one of the largest energy startups in the world by leveraging our project management, CFO startup know-how and many years experience working for complex international multibillion-dollar oil and gas, midstream, LNG, Methanol, and other petrochemical development projects. We assembled energy finance specialists using our deep energy networks and led a team of independent vertical service partners to help move our client to prepare for a large complex international transaction and move them to the next level in a matter of months. Our client got a truly on-demand, plug and play solution using the latest cloud technologies and apps.
"The Energy CFO's solution has saved us a fortune and helped us scale quickly. I don't understand why more petrochemical and energy infrastructure projects aren't using this service!"

"The ability to be so innovative is a great talent, and The Energy CFO will continue to rise and be even more successful than they are now." Shirley Crandall, President of Crandall and Associates.
"Working with The Energy CFO has been by far the best strategic planning and financial modeling experience I have been involved with throughout my 30+ year career. I highly recommend Paula as a Chief Financial Officer and her firm's fractional CFO solutions for startups." Chairman of an early stage Regenerative Therapy Product Company that has raised $2 Million.
“We are now walking into to private equity pitches asking for $50+ Million with a lot more confidence. We know that our financials have been vetted and we have a CFO by our side that can answer tough questions. Paula helped us organize and decide what information we needed in our executive summary for these meetings. Likewise, we can assure investors that we have a CFO Service Firm under contract who is fully capable of ramping us up post-funding." Co-founder of a Permian Delaware Basin Oil & Gas Exploration and Production company.
