Full Description

The Project, Facilities and Construction Study Group is pleased to announce our 4-part Spring Event Series for 2016. This series will focus on “Improving Project Efficiency at Less Than $50/bbl”

The role of the project manager is crucial to effective project development and project execution. This 4-part series will occur as weekly events in March covering project management roles from the perspective of an Operator, Fabricator, EPC and Consultancy. The goal of the series is to transfer knowledge related to how organizations can collaborate to improve efficiency at relatively lower oil prices than we have become accustomed to. What do we do now and what can we do going forward to improve project execution to meet the new budgetary goals in a low oil price environment?

 

Part I on Wednesday March 2nd will be presented by the Operator, Noble Energy and will discuss projects as viewed by the Operator and how the Operator owns the complete project life cycle from lease sale to abandonment.  The presentation focuses on project leadership as opposed to the function of project management.

Each event is scheduled to begin at 4:00pm with 30-minutes of networking followed by a 1-hour presentation and a 30-minute Q&A session. The room will remain available for an additional 30 minutes after the event to facilitate networking and one-on-one discussions.

Events are scheduled as follows:

     • 4:00pm to 4:30pm – Sign in and Networking

     • 4:30pm to 6:00pm – Presentation and Q&A

     • 6:00pm to 6:30pm – Networking and Close

Part II - The Fabricator – Kiewit - March 9

Part III - The EPC – Technip - March 23

These events will be presented by industry recognized experts from the oil and gas community.  They are perfect opportunities for either an introduction to project management, a refresher for the more seasoned individual, or just a great networking opportunity for those involved in this arena.

The PF&C Study group appreciates the support of our SPE-GCS members and we look forward to seeing you there.
