Why is Project Governance important?

The Oil and Gas Industry has a poor record for project success, particularly over the last 15 years up to 2015.  The lack of effective governance is often quoted as a significant factor. Most companies have detailed governance procedures but they tend to be poorly implemented. This matters more than ever in today’s challenging economic environment.

Corporate decision makers face significant pressure to demonstrate that they are achieving optimal project (and portfolio) value and that the corporation can deliver on its stated goals. Until recently, the high oil price meant that revenues mitigated or even disguised many project failures. Now this challenge is even more acute – and likely to remain so.  Projects are being planned and progressed in a climate of relentless cost reduction, extreme investor caution, greater stakeholder scrutiny and an ever increasing skills/experience gap within the industry (at all stages of project development and delivery).  The need for effective oversight to ensure value optimisation of the asset, timely buy-in from stakeholders and financial institutions has never been greater.

The challenges are likely to remain for the foreseeable future and the pressure is huge: successful project governance is a major competitive advantage for those who get it right:

  • A number of companies are updating their governance procedures to reduce the effort involved while also improving implementation effectiveness.
  • At least one IOC is radically overhauling their project oversight arrangements, believing it to be absolutely essential to their survival.
  • Increased scrutiny in the finance and M&A world: operators’ ‘project governance’ capabilities have become important criteria for loans and deals.

This course aims to provide an overview of key principles of successful Project Governance and Delivery.  It includes useful tips and insights (from experience) regarding decision making and stakeholder requirements (including as a non-operator).

  • the selection, design and supervision of key projects, field development planning and asset value optimisation:
