Share Article

Petrochemical Update is pleased to release the full audio recording and slides from their complimentary webinar on project execution strategies, hosted last month with senior level executives from HOLLYFRONTIER, JACOBS and MCKINSEY & COMPANY.

With the current oil-price and subsequently squeezed profit margins, refiners are looking for ways to streamline processes, increase efficiency and cut costs on those projects given the go-ahead. In light of this, the 60-minute webinar focuses on strategies and best practices for effective execution planning on capital projects, with the aim to unlock savings and maximize productivity.

Hear high-level insight on the following key areas:

  • Assessing the importance of front-end loading and exceptional scope definition for successful project execution and close-out
  • How to establishing a water-tight project leadership team with the right skill sets for your project
  • Choosing the right EPC/Contractors and maximizing productivity via successful cross team alignment initiatives

Kane Hittle, Vice President & Project Manager at HOLLYFRONTIER El Dorado Refinery in Kansas, said that FEL and scope definition are “critically important to a project’s success”. Patricia Griffith, Senior Expert – Capital Productivity & Infrastructure at MCKINSEY, and Michael Van Swol, Vice President Project Delivery at JACOBS, both agreed with Hittle’s statement. Van Swol noted that projects succeed when the execution plan comes under scrutiny, “and then making sure that we’re building the right project and the process scheme is firm, it’s well understood, it’s adopted by the client organization – including operations and maintenance folks.”
