“Offshore, Brownfield Execution in West Africa”
AMEC, with more than 150 years of operation, has successfully executed many projects in brownfield environments. They have used proven techniques and implemented progressive learnings over the history of the company to plan and execute the work. Most of the challenges encountered are matters of degree rather than novelty; however they have also needed to adapt the application of their knowledge and experience to new circumstances for continued successful execution.
This presentation summarizes techniques that AMEC has employed that help to ensure success throughout all stages of project execution for brownfield work scopes. Some of the challenges addressed for a recent West African project were location and lack of local supply chain infrastructure. Other aspects considered include local content requirements, material availability and logistics, SIMOPs, as well as scope integration.
Speaker: Kirk Barwick, Vice President Engineering, AMEC
