This book addresses the direct contribution of the project manager in the process industries, the main components of which are taken to be the petro-chemical, chemical, and oil-refining industries. It focuses on the specific role of the project manager, as opposed to the complete task facing the project team, and explores the many facets of project management including: Project Organisation; Definition and Strategy; Contractual Relationships; Choice of Type of Contract; Contract Strategy and Organisation; Effects of Taxation and Financing on Overseas Contracts; Selecting and Assessing Bidders; Evaluating Bids; Conditions of Contract; Model Forms of Contract; Project Cost Management; Planning; Design; Construction and Take Over. The various stages within a project are examined without becoming overloaded with checklists, providing a thorough analysis of the precise role of the project manager in different scenarios. Designed for those already with some project management experience and wishing to increase their depth of knowledge, Project Management in the Process Industries is essential reading in any company or for any individual involved in project management.
