Capital Project Management for Oil, Gas & Chemical

The smallest of delays can cost millions of dollars to an oil and gas or chemical company. Projects are increasing in volume, size and scope and the need to be scalable has become even more important. Relying on manual processes and decentralized spreadsheets exposes projects to risks and requires extensive time to prevent errors. The need for accurate forecasts and effective progress reports is essential.

Oil & Gas organizations are moving towards a more efficient month-end project process. Instead of manually updating information, organizations are utilizing project management software for real-time accurate project data so that they can focus more time on data analysis over data entry. Industry players could focus on two key lessons: adopting a disciplined approach to capital investment decisions and leveraging digital technologies to achieve higher capital productivity.



Digitizing the Oil & Gas Industry

One of the key trends in a 2019 prospect report on the oil, gas and chemical industry released by Deloitte is that digital technologies are becoming increasingly more intertwined in the industry’s value chain. According to the report, “Refining and petrochemicals have been in the vanguard of process automation for many years, but we are now seeing signs that the other sectors are turning their attention to digital opportunities.”

More companies in this sector are deploying digital technologies to increase efficiency, productivity, reliability and predictability of operations.

The report dives into the challenge these deployments can face, in saying, “Implementation at scale can be complex in the capital-intensive oil, gas, and chemicals environment where the challenges of legacy equipment and the large number of suppliers should be addressed.” This challenge is where Contruent software really shines as an oil and gas industry-leading project controls and project management solution.
