August 2018 Monthly Floating Production Systems Report
Thirty floating liquefaction projects and more than 40 floating regasification projects are in the planning queue. Some are imminent, some longer term, some will ultimately be shelved. An in-depth analysis by WER profiles these projects and systematically assesses the underlying strengths and weaknesses in each that determine whether the investment decision hurdle will be cleared. Some highlights are in our August WER report. Also in the report is an update of the underlying oil market fundamentals, the wind down status of Petrobras’ FPSO serial construction program and SBM’s thoughts about ordering more Fast4Ward FPSO hulls. In the data section are de tails for 228 floater projects in the planning stage, 46 production or storage floaters now on order, 300 floating production units currently in service and 29 production floaters available for redeployment contracts. Charts in the report update the location where floating production and storage systems are being planned, operating, being built and to be installed. Accompanying excel spreadsheets provide the report data in sortable format. Information is current as of 20 August.
