SYNOPSIS

Talks on Project Management

Note that the talks will focus on project management in the Oil & Gas sector, although the general principles are widely applicable.  In both cases the talks will begin with a safety moment and then an overview of project management.  The key elements required for good project management will be mentioned, including Financial Management and Risk Management.

Talk 1 – Financial Management

The talk will start with what drives projects for companies – i.e. value generation, and how the value of a project is assessed.  I will cover the stage-wise process of project approval since it is dependent at every stage on the economic evaluation of that project.  I will talk about sources of funding, how project costs are estimated, the key areas of expenditure and the sensitivity of the potential income, and hence overall economics, to a variety of factors.  Finally, I will talk about the importance of keeping to budget and the methods used to track expenditure during project execution.

Talk 2 – Risk Management

The talk will explain some of the key risks associated with the planning and execution of projects and how these are assessed, quantified and mitigated.  I will show how risk management is built into every phase of project development and why it is considered as a key part of any project review and assurance system.  I will talk about “Lessons Learnt” processes and how these are applied to ensure that companies minimise the chances of making similar mistakes on subsequent projects, and how they capture good ideas for replication.  I will highlight some examples of project risks and the possible financial and practical consequences of these if not properly dealt with.
