Endicott oil field
Building the first offshore Arctic oil field is a difficult enough challenge. Building it on schedule and under budget requires a well-structured project management process. This article discusses the effort involved in successfully realizing Alaska's (USA) Endicott Oil Field. In doing so, it describes the process used to design and construct the facility and its support infrastructure--roads, construction camps, temporary power generation. This article--written by the project's manager--also explains the project's engineering and construction work packages and details its work scope. It then explains the contracts used to govern construction of the operations camps (office and housing facilities), above-ground pipelines, and oil and gas process facility modules.
