  • Retrospective – Eurotunnel: Background, Debt, Equity. Retrospective case (1986) looking back some 30 years on the financing and outcome of the world’s largest transport infrastructure project. Roy C. Smith and Ingo Walter 
  • Dakota Access Pipeline Project (DAPL) – Development, construction and operation of the Dakota Access Pipeline Project, focusing on the underlying economics and financing structure as well as the permitting and regulatory process. Central to the case is management of conflicts with various stakeholders, which is characteristic of many large infrastructure ventures and requires sensitive and pro-active application of cost-benefit assessment in a highly politicized context. (2017) Sinziana Dorobantu and Ingo Walter.
