Projects

Proven project management experience.

Managing both onshore and offshore projects for the chemical, oil and gas industry.

Whether your project involves a small onshore facility or station, or a major plant or offshore structure, RCI has the experience and resume to be an asset to your team. We work throughout the US and in several international locations, delivering the project management expertise you need.

Our project experiences individually, and as a team, touch nearly every aspect of the energy community, from facility design and pipeline construction to handling the most routine RFPs and negotiations with project suppliers for our clients. RCI is a valuable member to any team. Our project managers and inspectors have extensive experience in all aspects of onshore, offshore and industrial construction, from grassroots mid-continent gas and liquids processing and compression facilities to the energy industry's maintenance, expansion and turnaround projects. We routinely handle field development projects including field development concept planning, overseeing the detailed engineering efforts, and providing management of the fabrication and installation of the facility, structure and pipelines. RCI is also involved in the continued maintenance operations and decommissioning and salvage efforts at the end of the facility's life.


RCI provides expertise to ensure your shallow water projects are managed efficiently and cost effectively. Shallow water projects have their own unique challenges. Equipment is often limited, not only in supply, but often in capacity, and frequently there are numerous regulations and regulatory agencies with which to comply because these waters are often in close proximity to the public. Consideration needs to be given to development costs as well as to the operational and maintenance costs of the field throughout the life of the prospect to ensure you maintain a profitable project. Eventual abandonment costs must be considered so your company complies with FASB 143 in accounting for the true cost for your project's development. We understand the technology needed to exploit these areas and work with you to make sure your projects in this specialized environment are successful.
