F03 – Managing upstream mega projects
Tuesday 11 July 14:15-15:45 (Hall 1)
Poster Session Wednesday 12 July 11:00-13:00 (Poster Plaza)


Driven by the need to have access to new reserves, oil companies are increasingly investing in fields that are very challenging technologically and commercially, such as Arctic or deep water projects. The investment and continuing expenditure needed to develop and produce from these fields puts them in the realm of ‘megaprojects’, costing US$5 billion or more. This forum will address execution risks and challenges related to delivering profitable megaprojects.
