In a global project environment where many large projects struggle to meet their cost and schedule targets, Saudi Aramco has been executing its world-class mega projects with ever shorter schedules, and well within budget. Of the five mega projects executed in the last ten years, two were selected as Project Management Institute project of the year, and one was honored at the 2005 International Petroleum Technology Conference.
Saudi Aramco is currently executing a series of new mega projects that will help meet the world-wide energy demand increases and ensure its leadership position for years to come. Huge new gas processing plants, facilities for recovering valuable petrochemical feedstock, and new crude oil production facilities are all a part of Saudi Aramco’s ambitious domestic capital program to increase oil supplies and support Saudi Arabia’s burgeoning petrochemical industry.
Collectively, the Hawiyah, Khursaniyah, Khurais, Shaybah and Manifa programs will increase revenue to the Kingdom, and promote the local economy by increasing oil production by 2.85 million BPD, sales gas by 1.4 BCFD, ethane production by .45 BCFD, and condensate by 325,000 BPD. All of these projects are being executed on demanding schedules and within budget without a significant increase in Company personnel while expanding the Saudi Arabian procurement and construction content of the projects. This paper will illustrate how this is being achieved.
The paper will also show how Saudi Aramco’s Project Management personnel cooperate with our internal stakeholders and contractors to deliver these projects. Integrated teams resolve technical issues swiftly, optimize scope, streamline design reviews and achieve full control of the quality and schedule.
The report will further demonstrate how the use of best practices promotes excellent project results. Our commonly used best practices include Value Engineering, Constructability, Planning for Startup, Benchmarking, Scope Definition & Control and formal use of Lessons Learned.
Saudi Aramco is dedicated to supporting Saudi Arabia’s role as the leading provider of energy to the world. History has demonstrated its success. Saudi Aramco will continue to build on the success through innovation, solid integration and a strong will to meet future challenges.
