Preface to Project Management for the Oil and Gas Industry


Oil and gas project management refers to the unique requirements of managing science, technology, and engineering aspects of projects in the oil and gas industry.

This book presents a step-by-step application of project management techniques for managing oil and gas projects. The book uses the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) framework from the Project Management Institute (PMI) as the platform for the topics covered.

The book also strongly advocates a world systems approach to managing oil and gas projects and programs.

Both quantitative and qualitative techniques are covered in the book. Thus, the book addresses the technical and managerial aspects of projects in the oil and gas industry.

Technical project management is the basis for sustainable national advancement, which often depends on the development of the oil and gas industry.

As such, managing oil and gas projects effectively is essential for national economic vitality. Project management is the process of managing, allocating, and timing resources to achieve a given goal in an efficient and expeditious manner.

The objectives that constitute the specified goal may be in terms of time, costs, or technical results. A project can range from the very simple to the very complex.

Due to its expanding utility and relevance, project management has emerged as a separate body of knowledge that is embraced by various disciplines ranging from engineering and business to social services.

Project management techniques are widely used in many endeavors, including construction management, banking, manufacturing, engineering management, marketing, health care delivery systems, transportation, research and development, defense, and public services.

The application of project management is particularly of high value in science, technology, and engineering undertakings, such as we have in the oil and gas industry. In today’s fast-changing IT-based and competitive global market, every enterprise must strive to get ahead of the competition through effective project management in all facets of its operations.

Project management represents an excellent basis for integrating various management techniques such as statistics, operations research, Six Sigma, computer simulation, and so on within the oil and gas industry operations.

The purpose of this book is to present an integrated approach to project management for oil and gas projects.

The integrated approach covers the concepts, tools, and techniques (both new and tested) of project management.

The elements of the PMBOK provide a unifying platform for the topics covered in the book.

The book is intended to serve as a reference book for planners, project operators, stakeholders, designers, project managers, business managers, consultants, project analysts, senior executives, project team members, members of the project management office, project customers, functional managers, trainers, and researchers.

It can also serve as a guidebook for technical consultants and as a textbook resource for students and educators.

It is also useful as supplementary reading for practicing engineers and as a handbook for field operators. It will appeal to petroleum industry professionals because of its focused treatment of oil and gas projects.

The book also contains case examples of applications of project management tools and techniques to real-life project scenarios. These could serve as lessons learned for best practices in project management.
