Project Management for Offshore Fields

offshore field1
8th - 10th July 2019 | Lagos, Nigeria
  • Gain an appreciation for optimal offshore field development and implementation, covering many diverse situations
  • Understand the various risks associated with offshore field development and how to manage such risks
  • Understand the reasons why projects may fail and how to prevent such failures through better project analysis or management
  • Appreciate the interdisciplinary nature and teamwork required for successful projects
  • Understand unique project processes such as “Tollgating” and Project implementation review
  • Review course requirements for major oil and gas projects from planning to scheduling and control
  • Learn all major aspects of project management for oil and gas
  • Comprehend project guidelines and standards demonstrated by numerous examples and case studies to pinpoint where projects have fallen short

Engineers and geoscientists, technical supervisors and managers, project and general managers, and those individuals, either current or future, with significant roles in major projects, or those that have a stake in the development of major oil and gas developments, for example government officials. It is assumed that participants will have a general knowledge of concepts in Exploration and Production (Development), i.e. the upstream part of the petroleum business. The course will be conducted at the intermediate to advanced level.

  • Project Engineers
  • Petroleum Engineers
  • Production Engineers
  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Geoscientists
  • Managers & Heads of Departments

Project Management deals with major projects, setting out principles and processes, emphasizing development but covering also exploration projects. Offshore projects are emphasized. This course will give participants an understanding of all major aspects of project management, dealing with internal (company) and external requirements (government, partners, contractors etc.). In particular, the course emphasizes core requirements for major projects, from planning to scheduling and control, including management of uncertainty and risk. Participants will be introduced to the large diversity of jargon and terms, covering such important areas as the engineering Basis of Design (BoD), and project processes such as “Tollgating” and Project Implementation Reviews (PIRs). Guidelines and standards, as well as ‘best practice’ will be demonstrated by numerous examples and case histories, used throughout to demonstrate important learning, particularly where projects have fallen short from expectations or have been failures. Based on case histories, participants will engage in numerous group exercises and discussions (each day, not shown in the course outline). 

The underlying theme for the course may be summed up as follows: show me an offshore petroleum development that did not experience some difficulties during the initial implementation phase.

Salvo Global’s course gives a fast-paced account of more than 10 case histories, covering development planning and implementation of offshore projects – both oil and gas, using various types of offshore facilities. The emphasis is on project situations where major problems were encountered, at times leading to commercial failure. In other cases project value was eroded or other negative consequences were experienced. Cases covered include situations related to facilities/construction, well design/implementation and reservoir characterization/evaluation. Also presented are a few developments where the deployment of novel technology has led to considerable benefits. After each case history, lessons learned are summarized.
