Project Management in Upstream Field Development - FPM2


About the Course

A project does not stand alone. Not only does a project manager need to stay focused on project cost, schedule and performance targets, he or she must take a broader view. Many projects are a part of a larger field development program. Maintaining cadence among related projects is essential to success. This course will help you effectively deliver facility and infrastructure projects that are crucial for timely oil and gas production.

Upon completion, you will know how to:

  • Use fit-for-purpose project management control tools for good project results.
  • Work the project management, drilling and completion, HSE, land, production, and transportation disciplines together for success
  • Control interfaces among different projects and contractors

This course addresses key requirements for repetitive projects in oil and gas programs. Emphasis is on both conventional and unconventional resources, such as shale oil and coal bed methane.

The course is taught using a blend of instruction, guided discussion, and hands-on exercises based on the instructor's petroleum successes and failures.

"Overall the course was well instructed and a lot of PM principles can be applied to other types of projects such as offshore. Excellent job by the instructor!" - Researcher, United States

This course counts toward PMI Project Development Units (PDUs) through continuing education. Completion Certificates may be submitted to PMI as required to document third-party training.
