In the pipeline

With projects that involve worldwide resources, such as pipeline projects, project managers must have a proactive strategy - plan early, engage support, and appease critics. If authorized, the project is designed and studied before recruitment of workers, synchronizing management philosophies, and working to ensure timely arrival of materials. Project managers must learn the regulatory process and do advance planning before starting construction. Potential routes are decided by examining the predicted flow of crude oil or gas from a producing field to a refinery or power plant, before it is distributred to population centers. The choice of route is based on construction costs, projected residents, and probable returns.Issues must be attacked up front and solutions must be offered in order to minimize delays.
