Offshore Projects and Engineering Management delivers a critical training tool for engineers on how to prepare cost estimates and understand the most recent management methods. Specific to the oil and gas offshore industry, the reference dives into project economics, interface management and contracts. Methods for analyzing risk, activity calculations and risk response strategies are covered for offshore, FPSO and pipelines. Supported with case studies, detailed discussions, and practical applications, this comprehensive book gives oil and gas managers a management toolbox to extend asset life, reduce costs and minimalize impact to personnel and environment.
Oil and gas assets are under constant pressure and engineers and managers need engineering management training and strategies to ensure their operations are safe and cost effective. This book helps manage the ramp up to the management of offshore structures.

Mohamed A. El-Reedy's background is in structural engineering. His main area of research is reliability of concrete and steel structures. He has provided consulting to different engineering companies, the oil and gas industries in Egypt, and international oil companies such as the International Egyptian Oil Company (IEOC) and British Petroleum (BP). Moreover, he provides different concrete and steel structure design packages for residential buildings, warehouses, and telecommunication towers, and for electrical projects with a major oil and gas construction company in Egypt. He has participated in Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) and Natural Gas Liquid (NGL) projects with international engineering firms. Currently, Dr. El-Reedy is responsible for reliability, inspection, and maintenance strategy for onshore concrete structures and offshore steel structure platforms. He has performed these tasks for a hundred structures in the Gulf of Suez and the Red Sea. Mohamed earned a PhD in structural engineering, a M.Sc degree in materials and concrete technology, and a B.Sc. in civil engineering, all from Cairo University.
