Full Description

*Pre-registration is closed but event walk-ins are welcome to attend.*

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 III on Wednesday March 23rd will be presented by the EPC, Technip and discuss recent bidding trends for the Gulf of Mexico. Sub $40/bbl oil prices are forcing oil companies to revisit historical execution models, be it company work processes, standardization, project cycle time, contracting strategy operational philosophy or execution methodology.  Recent trends for project execution will be compared to historical executions and the associated opportunities for overall project savings will be discussed.

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
