By a Project Engineer for Project Engineers

This website is dedicated to all Project Engineers across the globe engaged in Oil & Gas Project Engineering.

It is intended to provide readily usable tools and techniques to aid the practicing or aspiring Project Engineer in the performance of his/her responsibilities.

As the Oil and Gas industry strives to become more effective and more efficient, our mission at Cranston Engineering is to provide you with the tools to become more effective in your role as Project Engineer.

The aim is to help you work smarter (not harder)!

Why and why now?

With the recent downturns in the Oil & Gas industry and the lower oil price there is an increasing focus on more effective and efficient completion of projects.

Most Project Engineers become Project Engineers because they are self motivated and take the lead in resolving issues and completing scopes. These Project Engineers often have little formal training and coaching in project engineering and self learn based on support from other project personnel and hard-won experience.

Imagine you do not have to take the traditional trial and error route and invest many years to gain competency as a Project Engineer. As a practising Project Engineer and Project Manager for over 30 years I understand the challenges faced by new entrants to project engineering and to that end have over a period of 10+ years, supported by a number of industry experts, developed the Project Engineers Toolkit.

Content of the Toolkit

The content of the Project Engineer’s Toolkit has been heavily influenced by the following three main sources:

30+ years experience

Having worked as a Project Engineer for over 30 years, I have gained much hard-won experience, which has resulted in developing techniques that work in the “real world” project environment.


Project management body of knowledge

As a member of project management organisations since 1999, including the Association for Project Management (APM) and the Project Management Institute (PMI), my projects are run using the principles contained in project management profession books of knowledge.

Toastmasters International

The skills and techniques in leadership and communication are influenced heavily from over 12 years of active membership in Toastmasters International. Toastmasters is a worldwide organisation of over 350,000 members promoting development of both leadership and communication skills. These techniques have been adapted for the requirements of Project Engineering within Oil & Gas engineering Organisations.
