Robust Project Delivery in the UKCS

2017 Oil & Gas Project Management Conference

Tuesday 31st October 2017, Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre





The OGA’s “Lessons Learned from UKCS Oil & Gas Projects 2011-2016” report demonstrates that despite an increase in Project Management processes, tools, project controls, supervision and engineering man-hours, there has been no visible improvement in the ability to predict outcomes.

The study highlighted that fewer than 25% of major projects were delivered on time, with projects experiencing an average of 10 months’ delay and coming in around 35% over budget.

It is clear that we need to manage our projects better. Not only is this essential to the profitability of the assets concerned, but it is also critical to attract investment into the Industry. Improving project performance will contribute significantly to supporting MER and achieving a sustainable future for the North Sea.

Project management is an established profession, and its methods and procedures are well known, but this has not always led to good project outcomes. How do we close this “knowing-doing gap” and turn this knowledge into robust project delivery?
