according to EY special oil and gas mega-project report; only 89% of oil & gas megaprojects are overrunning budgets in the Middle East. This failure to plan and forecast has become the main concern of the industry. Not only in the Middle East, but also to North America who is overrunning budget on 56% of the mega oil and gas projects. It’s an industry issue!

The ability to design the contract correctly would be the very first step. Experts may blame the complexity of the project, or the business-environment conditions, however, it was proven that contractual and commercial terms, scope, controls and quantified risks has been the source of 94% of the overruns.

Organisations are encouraged to review contracts against plans, commercial terms and invoiced amounts against scope to validate payments and improve the projects economics. The validation of the out-of-scope payments is a critical two-way component to the business.
