A ‘Pipeline’ to Unleashing Value: Cutting Midstream Costs and Reducing Risk with Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Solutions
Huge capital projects entail enormous hurdles in logistics, planning, scheduling, communications, data management, and risk analysis. With pipeline mega-projects comes a great need to better collaborate and share information across the value chain that ultimately will drive down costs and increase the accuracy of delivery dates. Owner-operators, contractors, and suppliers working in the oil and gas pipeline industry all must find innovative solutions to minimize complexity and risk in these massive undertakings, as it becomes a top priority to have all players on a project team work more closely together. All of these factors and more are adding costs or reducing revenues and creating new risk management challenges for oil and gas pipeline companies.
Pipeline project lifecycle management solutions, such as enterprise project and portfolio management (EPPM) solutions from Oracle, enable both executive and project leaders alike to successfully manage costs and reduce risk in such a volatile climate. This paper will address some key management issues facing the oil and gas pipeline industry from an enterprise project and portfolio management lifecycle perspective and how EPPM solutions can help minimize risk and thus cut costs.

Prepare for the Unexpected: Capital Investment Planning in Asset-Intensive Industries (Special Report from the Economist Intelligence Unit, Sponsored by Oracle)
Capital planning in the oil and gas, utilities, metals and mining and chemicals industries is fraught with difficulties. Only 11% of companies surveyed by the Economist Intelligence Unit in October 2010 report delivering the expected return on investment (ROI) on major capital projects 90-100% of the time, and 12% report delivering planned ROI less than half the time. No matter how robust and far-reaching their planning processes, organizations in the oil and gas, mining and metals, utilities and chemicals industries struggle to manage risks, predict levels of ROI and reap the expected value from major capital investments. This paper, prepared by the Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by Oracle, explores the results of a survey of over 425 executives in asset-intensive industries and offers practical recommendations for improving the capital investment planning process.
