Project management for offshore oil and gas projects

Oil and gas development projects are complex and encompass several elements that need to be managed effectively to ensure timely completion. A broad framework covering all the aspects of the development can ensure a reliable delivery schedule.

The main stages involved in the development of oil and gas projects are:

  • Project architecture, which includes choosing the best concept for the project and developing a strategy
  • Detailed planning, which covers the preparation of an execution plan for the project and includes FEED and contractor selection
  • Execution and start-up, which involves the management and delivery of the project within the specified cost and time in addition to commissioning and start-up
  • Performance test, which includes the testing phase to ensure the performance of the project is maintained and the project is delivered to planned. It also covers performance tests and the handover of operations
