Module Highlights

Day 1 - Project Lifecycle and Front-End Loading

The course begins with an in-depth introduction to subsea project delivery, emphasising the project lifecycle, including its various stages. Participants will learn about Pre-Front End Loading (Pre-FEL) and Front End Loading (FEL), understanding the intricacies of these processes through industry examples. The day is dedicated to imparting knowledge on the visualisation, conceptualisation, and definition stages of a project, providing a solid foundation for understanding the early phases of subsea project planning and development.

Day 2 – Organisational Structure and Execution Strategies

This day focuses on the organisational aspects of subsea projects, including the creation and management of major project documents, adherence to codes and standards, and the effective organisation of project teams. It also delves into the execution phase of the project lifecycle, covering essential elements such as project management processes, detailed project planning techniques, and comprehensive cost management and estimating strategies. This session aims to equip participants with the skills necessary to manage complex projects efficiently and effectively.

Day 3 – Procurement, Risk, and Supply Chain Management

Day three addresses critical components of project management, such as procurement and contracting strategies, different types of contracts, and the procurement process itself. Participants will engage in a practical exercise focusing on risk management, specifically the creation and management of a risk register. The day also covers logistics and supply chain management, providing insights into managing these critical aspects of subsea projects. Additionally, the concept of Value Improving Practices (VIP) and value engineering is explored, highlighting methods to enhance the value and efficiency of projects

Day 4 – Financial Management

The course's final day is dedicated to the financial aspects of project management, including project economics, pre and post-approval activities, and various economic evaluation methods such as sensitivity analysis and Monte Carlo simulation. Participants will engage with case studies, including an economic evaluation case study and a Monte Carlo simulation case study, to apply the learned concepts in real-world scenarios. This day is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the economic evaluation processes essential for successful subsea project delivery
