On where do you think the industry is heading in the next 5-10 years? Challenges and opportunities?
TC thinks that appreciating and assessing the situation within each region and the volume of work that is being pushed though is a key process before the launch of any new projects – Where can the required resources and capabilities be found? While manufacturers and contractors would like to have more opportunities, is it realistic from the operator’s prospective? Can it really be done? Are stakeholder sentiments pushing the project costs up?
It’s all about making sure that everything is planned well, and everyone understands what they are getting themselves into and understand both the labour and resources issues and also the engineering capabilities.
