Task 2:

AMEC Marine Construction(AMEC) is an international marine construction company with Shipyards around the Globe specializing in building-specific marine projects for a variety of international clients. It was recently commissioned to construct and install an Offshore Oil and gas production platform for an international consortium.

The Project/program

To construct and installation of an Offshore Oil rig platform to the North Sea.

Construction:

Two four-leg jackets one for the production platform and one for the Accommodation. One accommodation (Deck) platform for the crew quarters and offices with five levels.

One production (Deck) platform with four decks for the production equipment

Installation:

Jackets: when both jackets structures have been completed skidded onto two barges and towed to the North Sea oil field location. Platforms: both platforms put onto barges and towed out to the jacket’s location.

The budget for the project is US$ 550m, and the platform should be installed before the winter weather closed in on the area, therefore no later than 30th August 2024, and delivered for Operation no later than the end of September. After that day is an operational lost profit penalty of US$ 300,000 per day. Since the location of the oil field (North Sea) and the unique design demands of the Project, the construction should start at AMEC’s two shipyards on Newcastle upon Tyne, the starting day hasn’t been finalized yet but would be the first six months of 2021. The budget of the Project was estimated on the basis that work needs to be done with a 24/7 workload framework, and commission both yards at the hole period of the Project.  Also, all the main sub-contractors would be from the UK and Europe due to close links and contracts with the consortium.

The Project manager and the team

Melvin Black has been appointed as the Project manager. He is a 50-year-old project manager with 30 years’ experience in Marine engineering project management. Melvin appointed a full-time team of five managers and ten assistant managers (see Diagram below), all of them had experience working on similar oil rig platform projects and co-ordinating relevant shipyard managers and staff.

Background: The assignment is intended to bring out the benefits and limitations of the four stages of the project life cycle with different approaches to project planning and control by relating these to the circumstances in the cases outlined. It is also intended to allow students to demonstrate their learning and competence in respect of the management of resources generally but in particular elements of scope, schedule, qualit
