Project Management

5 days PGP/OCP-E
  • Owner and Engineering Contractor management positions, project engineers.
  • Management of large Oil&Gas projects (above €1 Billion), from initiation to start-up.
Learning Objectives
  • Execute FEED (justification, feasibility study, Basic Engineering activities, project approval).
  • Plan, then control the project execution (Detail Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Start-up).
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.
Course consistent with the PMI standards and the 5th edition of the PMBOK. PDUs: 30
