Book Layout

The book is split into 3 main sections:

Soft Skills

Soft skills are vital for a Project Engineer who will spend a significant part of his/her time dealing with people of various backgrounds, competencies and attitudes. Based on sound techniques these skills can be developed and practiced to great effect.

Core Project Management

This section explores the core project management competencies associated with Process Facilities Project Engineering and uses actual documentation examples to explain how to manage these areas. 

The Engineering Disciplines

This section demystifies the Engineering Disciplines and provides insight from a Project Engineers viewpoint. These chapters will allow you to understand the work processes for each discipline, plus the inputs and the outputs so that you will be more effective in integrating all the engineering elements into your projects scopes.

Influences on the content

Content has been influenced by the following three main sources:

30+ years Project Engineering/Management Experience

Having worked as a Project Engineers/Managers for over 30 year much hard won experience has been gained which has resulted in developing techniques that work in the “real world” Projects environment.

Project Management Bodies of Knowledge

As a member of the PMI and previously APM since 1999 projects have been run using the principles contained in the project management industry books of knowledge. Many of these principles have been used in development of this book.

Toastmasters International

The skills and techniques in leadership and communication are influenced heavily from active membership of Toastmasters International for over 13 years. Toastmasters is a worldwide organisation of over 350,000 members promoting development of both leadership and communication skills. These techniques have been adapted for the requirements of Project Engineering within Process Industry engineering contractors.

Having worked on brownfield and greenfield projects in senior project and construction engineering/management positions for the last 30+ years for most of the major clients and contractors in the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry I can confirm that this life’s work compiled by Graham and Peter summarises every aspect of Project Engineering. If any budding young and/or older engineers who need to learn and/or refresh any requirements of how to do this Project Engineers job successfully then this book will always be there to help you.
