Project Management in Upstream Field Development - FPM2
Discipline: Project Management
Duration: 3 days
Instructor(s): Pete Luan, Ken Lunsford, Juan Malave
Upon completion of this course, the participant will understand the engineering, procurement, and construction phases, and be able to utilize fit-for purpose project management techniques and project control tools to facilitate successful project outcomes. The specific training received in schedule and cost management will help the early career project manager make the best decisions possible. Participants will learn how the project management, drilling and completion, HSE, land, production, and transportation disciplines relate to one another and what tools are available for the project manager to use to ensure interfaces among key stakeholders are managed. The course is taught using a combination of instruction, facilitated discussion, and hands-on exercises using real-world project examples related to facilities design, procurement, and construction. The exercises will include both individual and group activities that will provide each participant with a hands-on application of the principles and practices discussed throughout the course.
"Time distribution seemed appropriate. Liked contracts, scheduling, cost." - Reservoir engineer, United States
"Overall the course was well instructed and a lot of PM principles can be applied to other types of projects such as offshore. Excellent job by the instructor!" - Researcher, United States
Early career project managers, project engineers, facility engineers, operations engineers, project controls, and purchasing personnel who plan, manage, or participate on multi-discipline field development project teams. This course addresses the special requirements associated with developing oil and gases plays, where repetitive projects such as well flow lines, tank batteries, booster compressors, short pipelines, and meter stations are a part of a larger field development program. Special emphasis will be placed on $5 MM to $50 MM projects associated with unconventional field development projects, such as shale oil and coal bed methane, as well as projects in conventional plays.
You Will Learn:
- Define the engineering, procurement, and construction phases and execute them skillfully
- Identify key constraints and interfaces and develop action plans to address them
- Develop scopes of work, cost estimates, and schedules
- Prepare project execution plans
- Utilize progress measurement and control techniques
- Field development programs
- The project delivery system
- Organization and resources
- Project execution plan
- HSE and project risk management
- Procurement and contracting
- Cost estimating
- Planning and scheduling
- Progress measurement
