Many oil sands and natural gas mega-projects are in the pipeline, however increasing project management challenges and labour force shortages are posing threats to project completion. Do you have what it takes to succeed?

Today's oil sands, natural gas and pipeline projects are reaching all time highs when it comes to labour requirements, materials procurement and cost overruns. In fact current oil sands projects are the most capitally intensive in the world.

Owners are re-evaluating how to design and manage their projects, including what degree of planning and management should come from partnering EPC companies. With many of the new big budget expansions expected in Western Canada knowledge sharing means increased opportunity to improve overall project management techniques.

The Canadian Institute's Best Practices for EPC Mega-Project Management gathers the industry's top owners, EPC firms and industry experts to deliver cutting edge best practices including:
*Petro-Canada, Athabasca Oil Sands Project, and Time Industrial on industry initiatives to improve bottom line forecasting and manage costs
*Husky Energy, Enbridge Pipelines Inc. and Optima Engineers and Constructors on how to structure a mega-project and when to break it down into components
*Total Group (Paris), Bantrel Co. and Fluor Corporation on top techniques to improve scheduling and resource management
*Alberta Human Resources and Employment, University of Calgary, ConocoPhillips Canada and Synenco Energy on future needs and initiatives to increase the supply of skilled tradespeople and project managers
*CNRL, Fluor Canada, Mammoet Canada, Alberta Roadbuilders and Heavy Construction Association on advantages, challenges and new approaches to modularization
