Project Management

  • Owners and Engineering Contractors: managers, engineers and supervisors in charge of medium-size and revamping projects in refineries, petrochemical and chemicals plants.
  • Specific features of medium-size (10 million to 1 billion €) and revamping projects implemented in operating facilities.
Learning Objectives
  • Execute FEED (justification, feasibility study, Basic Engineering activities, project approval).
  • Plan, then control the project execution (Detail Engineering, Procurement, Construction).
Ways and means
  • Numerous examples taken from actual refining/chemical projects.
  • A case study is used throughout the course to study all stages of the project, with exercises for participants.
  • Interactive games and quizzes to verify knowledge acquisition.
Course consistent with the PMI standards and the 5th edition of the PMBOK. PDUs: 30
