Project management for oil and gas projects

By adopting a holistic and tailored approach to project management, our goal is to ensure that every oil and gas project is completed on time and on budget, and to the agreed quality.

Our projects are managed and executed by experienced senior staff well-versed in handling large-scale oil and gas projects. Our success is demonstrated by a strong project track record and relies on the methodology of the Ramboll Project Management model.

The Ramboll Project Management model

Ramboll employs a project management model that is based on international best practice and our own industry experience. Ramboll ‘Project Excellence’ comprises a stage-gate model designed to maximise performance and client benefits, while providing a clear roadmap throughout the project lifecycle.

The Project Excellence model is generic and scalable, which ensures desired quality levels and timely delivery regardless of project complexity, scope, size or duration. Our model serves to facilitate a full understanding of client and project needs, and to ensure all strategic goals are met.

Full HSEQ integration on oil and gas projects

Our HSEQ management system supports the Project Excellence model, addressing the full project lifecycle from proposal to planning, execution and completion. It is our trademark to integrate HSEQ into every aspect of our projects, and our consultancy services are based on hands-on experience designing, implementing and maintaining HSEQ management systems.

Our services within project management cover:

  • Risk & opportunity management, and management of change
  • Planning & scheduling; progress reporting & status meetings
  • Resource management, cost control and budget updates
  • Design and quality management
  • Document control
  • Construction management 
  • Stakeholder management including permitting support


The Nord Stream pipeline project

European gas consumption is increasing, and in order to meet these demands and ensure a long-term reliable supply line of energy, it was decided to establish a 1,224 kilometre dual pipeline system running from Vyborg, Russia to Lubmin near Greifswald, Germany. The project is called the Nord Stream Pipeline.
