  • Course Overview

    Oil and gas projects have special characteristics that need a different technique in project management.
    The development of any country depends on the development of the energy reserve through investing in oil and gas projects through onshore and offshore exploration, drilling, and increasing facility capacities. Therefore, these projects need a sort of management match with their characteristics. Project management is the main tool to achieving a successful project. This program focuses on using practical tools and methods that are widely and successfully used in project management for oil and gas projects. However, oil and gas projects have their own requirements and characteristics in management from the owners, engineering offices, and contractors’ side.
    The aim of this training program is to be helpful to any engineering discipline or staff in sharing or applying the work of a petroleum project. Why do the senior managers accept this project and refuse the others? Why does this company have huge investments in this country, but little investments on another country, especially in oil and gas projects?
    These questions are always on our mind, so it is important to discuss them clearly. Knowledge is power.
    The main tools in managing the project, which are time, resources, cost, and quality management, shall be illustrated by using practical examples from petroleum projects.
