Experienced IT project management services for the oil & gas industry
GeoComputing Group offers comprehensive project management services delivered by experienced resources that have solid geotechnical and IT domain knowledge.
Our methodology involves working with our clients to identify scope, budget, and timescales. Your reporting and governance requirements are identified at the outset, and all are fed into the project initiation phase. Working with your own experts, or with GeoComputing Group consultants, the project team will be formed and a structured methodology is followed.
In the early stages of a project, we can assist in the appraisal and selection of solutions, whether this is for applications, infrastructure, hardware or a combination of them all. Whatever you need, we can help you select the products that meet your requirements. GeoComputing Group’s project managers will plan, monitor, manage, report and troubleshoot throughout the project lifecycle, always keeping focused on the timeline.
Once successfully delivered into production, our operations support teams can be engaged to maintain the environment, pro-actively working to keep it reliable and at peak performance.
Project management is the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals in scientific or daily problems. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.
The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the preconceived constraints. The primary constraints are scope, time, quality and budget. The secondary — and more ambitious — challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and integrate them to meet pre-defined objectives.
