Effective Project Information Control in Unconventional Shale Oil & Gas Projects

Effective Project Information Control in Unconventional Shale Oil & Gas Projects


Lessons Learned from Unconventional Oil Sands SAGD Projects and Operations

Shale oil & gas projects have similar project information management challenges to those of oil sands steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) projects. Both face environments of:

  • evolving technology
  • constant change
  • significant regulatory oversight
  • active public engagement

This drives a need for increased efficiencies in managing deliverables, processes, and stakeholder communications. While project management practices have advanced significantly, unconventional oil & gas projects continue to face industry challenges in information management that impact everything from drilling and water management, to reporting with regulators.

This white paper shares five lessons learned from 20 years of oil sands SAGD projects that demonstrate the importance of developing a project information management strategy early to set a foundation for success in any type of unconventional oil & gas capital project.
