LNG Export 2024 Panel Discussion: Execution & Design Strategies



Execution & Design Strategies – to improve schedules and productivity

  • What can we do with the design early, so you can start construction earlier
  • How can we streamline that process to get to the field earlier
  • Prefabrication and assembly – what are the capabilities to do key tasks offsite in advance to help improve productivity and mitigate labor shortages
  • How can we do more with less?
  • Are digital twins helping and how can EPCs handover digital twins to the Owner in a manner to where they are useful during the operating life-cycle
  • How are drones being used to monitor/measure progress and work front availability
  • What are the benefits of digitizing engineering and vendor data to improve access to field construction personnel
  • How can regulatory process improve to allow for early activities to begin w/o final design of some elements of the facility
