Many petroleum projects fail to meet their authorized cost, schedule or operability targets. To be successful, today's project leader needs a comprehensive set of technical, business and interpersonal skills. This course addresses those critical skills. Seasoned instructors tackle the issues and challenges found in concept selection, development planning, facility design, procurement, and construction activities. The specific training received in schedule and cost management, risk mitigation, and the proper use of scarce resources (people and materials) will help you make better decisions.

Upon completion, you will know how to:
  • Improve engineering and service discipline work relations
  • Use execution plans to integrate the work
  • Effectively employ cost and schedule control tools

This course is taught using a combination of instruction, facilitated discussion, and in-depth exercises based on the instructor's petroleum development successes and failures.
