Successful project delivery: How OCCMS can help
Successful project delivery: How OCCMS can help
Oil and gas project management is intricate, with many moving parts required to deliver successful, fully realised results.
From offshore drilling projects to exploration, OCCMS and our cutting-edge Orbit technology is here to streamline energy projects and enhance results. We’re here to improve all aspects of project delivery, offering a range of services to help you plan with efficiency and deliver objectives with confidence.
How we support your project
OCCMS has developed a range of services and software to support your project throughout each stage. Today, we’ll explore our consultancy, completions and commissioning services, as well as our versatile Orbit application.
Our consultants work closely with clients to close gaps in their current project delivery practices and refine outputs. Each OCCMS specialist has over 20 years of experience in an area of project management, completions or commissioning.
Listening carefully and moving quickly, our consultants can provide projects with early support and in-depth performance audits, as well as reactive project recovery assistance.
As far back as 2007, our consultants have supported companies such as Addax Petroleum (Gabon), a Sinopec Group subsidiary, where a base study investigation and gap analysis breakdown to assess existing work methods was conducted. Based on those findings, OCCMS was appointed to establish best practices for recruitment and training, amongst other responsibilities.
In this instance, an in-country OCCMS core team was set up to implement modern work practices across the company, resulting in enhanced performances for each of Addax’s projects.
Projects often involve multiple contractors and stakeholders, with a complex network of contractual relationships between them. When we provide a client with completions support, we work with existing engineering, procurement, and construction partners to ensure works are completed in line with the agreed programme.
Breaking down every element of a project as part of an in-depth audit, we can determine what needs to change to bring works back into line. This is an end-to-end project management process that often involves pre-commissioning, qualification and validation, and operations support.
OCCMS can provide specialist completions engineers to assist with the configuration and population of your CMS database either remotely or they can mobilise to site.
OCCMS was appointed by EDF to provide completions support for its Hinkley Point C nuclear new build project. By examining existing systems and processes, provided actionable recommendations to improve alignment between stakeholders and to streamline the company’s internal completion management systems for future use.
Appointing the right contractors and consultants ensures projects are delivered to the highest standards. At OCCMS, our commissioning team comprises specialists with an intimate knowledge of their respective industries, offering pre-commissioning solutions alongside our Orbit commissioning and completions software to provide a cost-effective, fullyscoped campaign.
We select from our global talent pool which demonstrates a technical competency and the mindset necessary to deliver work safely, on schedule and within budget. Recently, OCCMS was appointed by a client within the nuclear/defence industry to conduct a peer review of its Commissionin g Modernisation Plan. We were asked to identify areas for improvement in terms of commissioning for the design, build and delivery of key nuclear powered assets.
Existing techniques were compared with OCCMS’ detailed commissioning road map, which led to several findings and recommendations for the client to implement. One of the key recommendations was a change in culture to minimise communication breakdown between stakeholders and reduce bottlenecks.
Orbit is our flexible completions and commissioning project management software. It is used to centralise information and align every part of a project by documenting project status, changes, deficiencies and handover status.
Through API functionality, Orbit can connect with other systems and software to enable seamless data integration. It can also be used securely anywhere in the world by as many users as needed, sharing real-time data so there is full transparency of project progress.
Fully customisable dashboards give project managers a snapshot view of current challenges, allowing them to identify priority areas of focus.
Oil and gas company TAQA Bratani UK identified a need to refine its Completion Management System by providing key stakeholders with a greater overview of project closeout activities.
Amongst the challenges it was experiencing, the company was frustrated by major delays in closing out Technical Queries (TQs). TQ closures often involve a complex series of assessments and approvals.
OCCMS implemented Orbit across their five active North Sea projects, modifying the codebase to ensure it directly responded to the client’s requirements. Project TQ tracking soon became much easier, with a traceable workflow leading to a much more efficient management system.
