The South Pars Gas Field Site Preparation Project (Phases 4 & 5)
was the second project in which Kayson experienced working with a foreign client
in the Iranian port of Assaluyeh. The only difference was that this time the
project had to be completed in half the time- although it involved virtually the
same scope of work, including the same volume of earthwork as phases 2 & 3.
Apart from the time pressure, the most challenging issue facing the project
management team was to bring the project's implementation process into line with
quality standards and construction procedures employed in developed countries.
Thus, Kayson had to put in place an effective quality management system, set up
an efficient and well-equipped HSE unit, work out detailed plans for daily,
weekly & monthly progress reporting, make sure the necessary hardware and
software were available to provide reliable communication links and information
flow throughout the project management organization, and deploy schedule & cost
control procedures to make certain that the project was completed on time and
In a matter of a few weeks, site mobilization was completed, an
HSE unit composed of 22 employees assumed responsibility for health & safety and
environmental management, the Finance and Administration Department took charge
of 1800 workers and employees and a considerable cash flow per month, the IT &
Computer Services Department set up a network to handle the storage, retrieval
and distribution of information, the documentation section drew up a master plan
for total and ongoing documentation of construction activities, the logistics
and procurement units saw to it that the project's requirements were met in a
timely and efficient manner.
The South Pars Gas Field
Development Project (Phases 4 & 5) is designed to produce 50 million cubic
meters of natural gas per year, 8 thousand barrels of associated condensates per
day, 1.05 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas per day, and 1 million tonnes
of ethane per year to be used as feed stock by petrochemical plants.
