A partner of excellencefor oil and gas professional development

Engineering Management

  • Personnel involved or interested in activities performed by Engineering Contractors.
  • To provide an overview of Oil & Gas projects Engineering studies.
Learning Objectives
  • To control engineering activities, deliverables, work sequence and interfaces.
  • To identify and mitigate the main risks: schedule, vendors, interfaces, quality.
  • To identify critical points, and to implement and monitor the related KPIs.
  • To manage progress and changes in accordance with Best Engineering Practices.
Ways and means
  • Half of the training is devoted to hands-on exercises on Engineering discipline and management tasks.
  • Quiz at the end of each section to assess knowledge acquisition.
  • A 200 page guide is provided for future reference.
Public courses are scheduled by our E&P Division (see the E&P catalogue, course reference E-714)
