The AP-Canada Capital Project Database is a detailed collection of capital project data with statistics from more than 3,000 unique projects, including over 1,000 major projects and 2,000 plant-based projects. These projects are gathered from sites throughout North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Major project data has been gathered from operators in the upstream, midstream, downstream, and power industries, while plant-based project data has been collected from operators in the refining, gas, power, chemicals, and E&P industries.
Measuring and tracking project performance is essential for long-term operational success. The AP-Canada Capital Project Database contains information on planned and actual project outcomes, key characteristics, and planning and execution practices that are correlated with outcomes. Data analysis facilitates insights into the causal factors behind success and failure, and allows individual projects to be benchmarked against Industry average and top quartile performance. It also allows for the identification of demonstrated practices that lead to successful outcomes.
