The course provides an overview of the elements of project management involved in the upstream oil and gas exploration and production industry required to take a project from an idea to full field development for both non-technical and technical staff. The principles of project management and the different stages of development and project execution will be considered. With a decline in both global economic conditions and corporate revenues, stakeholders are demanding improved return on investment, reduced risk and exposure to risk and greater transparency. Schedules and budgets are tight, safety is crucial and every project faces a network of stakeholders concerned about its impact on the environment and communities. Large projects in the oil and gas industry make up a significant percentage of company spend, and therefore there must be particular focus on project management learning and development within the industry to deal with these complex projects.
