Engineering services contractors provide engineering, procurement, construction, operations and maintenance services to the oil and gas sector. Engineering services contractors have traditionally not been involved in managing the social performance of oil and gas project operations. This report argues that there is a great opportunity for contractors to become engaged in managing social impacts and improving social performance of projects and client-led operations. In most cases, it is contractors who are on the ground and in direct contact with communities throughout the lifecycle of oil and gas projects. This report looks at the case for the AMEC-Fluor joint venture and the wider engineering services contractor sector – to become more involved in managing the social impacts and performance of oil and gas projects.
