In order to meet an increasing global demand for energy, the Oil and Gas industry is faced with an unprecedented requirement to expand its supply. This includes the need for greater exploration and production (E&P), expansion of pipeline/transportation, and the requirement to produce more refinery output.

To profitably meet this demand, efficient planning and execution of projects that drive the Oil and Gas business is paramount. Several factors complicate this challenge:

  • Significant global expansion in exploration and capital projects
  • Projects are becoming more complex
  • Project costs continue to grow, while averaging 40% over budget
  • Skilled-labor pool is shrinking, where 50% will retire in the next 10 years

Alpha offers the following services to support Oil and Gas Projects:

  • Program and Project Management Platform Evaluation, Selection, and Implementation
  • Capital Project and Outage Project Management and Controls Staff Support
  • Business Process Definition and Analysis
  • Engineering and Construction Management
