8:55 AM - 9:00 AM IQPC welcome remarks


9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Project Gate System (PGS) process is the governing framework used by KOC for selecting, planning and managing capital engineering programmes in a consistent and disciplined manner. Attend this session to gain insight on how the PGS process outlines the approach to be used for developing and progressing all new KOC business opportunities from initiation of a proposed project to the delivery of an operational facility.

Learn about PGS process:
  • The stages of the capital project lifecycle
  • The high-level activities for each PGS process stage, and their mutual relationships with the consequent stage
  • The key deliverables required for each PGS process stage
  • The key decision points (stage gates), assessment reviews and gate keeper approvals required for the project to proceed

By attending the workshop you will get guidance for the development and execution of projects over their lifecycle to ensure continued alignment with the company’s strategic, financial and operating requirements.

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Networking lunch
