Oil and gas infrastructure projects have significant bearings on their density. As they typically involve complex processes, especially when dealing with construction projects planning approval. This situation shows that initiatives for improving and managing the process become vital. Construction organisation has begun to realise that knowledge is an intellectual asset that diffused and grew within the organisation in the new global economy. The need of knowledge management in construction industry is fueled by the need for innovation, improved business performance and client satisfaction. However, there is still a need to seek for potential of Information Technology (IT) as an enabler for knowledge management. As a result, IT application becomes the major focus of this research. It seeks to look at the use of a web-based technology to improve the management of planning approval process for oil and gas infrastructure projects. This study aims to provide support during problems reporting, agents’ allocation, planning approval and performance evaluation. This paper reports the groupware system that is developed through system development approaches. As a result, this system serves as an alternative tool for the stakeholders in monitoring, controlling and managing planning approval process during the pre-construction stage.
