How best to use lessons learnt from the past to optimize EPC delivery in the future

On Demand Webinar

The use of EPC delivery models continues to have rounded support in industry sectors and geographic regions. While it’s becoming an established contracting method, such models continue to include examples of significant contractual disputes and sub-optimization of overall performance.

As part of the RICE Global E&C Forum, this webinar shows how HKA’s CRUX dispute casusation research and analysis can be used to help refine and improve the execution of O&G and Energy EPC projects going forward.
