Undoubtedly you will have felt the pressure of low oil prices and the lack of new FPSO projects over the past 12 -18 months. There are no easy remedies, but the consensus is clear: we cannot carry on with business as usual and wait for oil prices to increase and return us to the way things were: we must make fundamental changes to how our industry operates.
Today, FPSO stakeholders are more willing than ever to engage in open discussions to advance the industry as they re-evaluate their processes and supply chain - will you be part of the conversation?
Explore the agenda and see for yourself why the FPSO World Congress remains the largest and most established global industry forum, through thick and thin.
Stones Project Director
Business Opportunity Manager
Deepwater Stones Asset
Curtis and Maria will address achieving first oil and development opportunities ahead for the Stones field development. The session will explore Shell’s experience with the Turritella on the path to first oil and further examine the development opportunities for the field post-first oil and the E&P outlook ahead for the US Gulf of Mexico deepwater.
FPSO Category Manager
Simon will address how FPSO contractors can help oil companies develop a successful business case for an FPSO development. Understand oil companies’ key considerations when selecting an FPSO procurement strategy for a development; what messages oil companies “hear” from FPSO contractors and what vessel contractors can do to increase their chances of successfully winning an FPSO contract.
Group Technology Director
Michael will address how to align critical design and operational requirements when undertaking an FPSO redeployment: from modifications and understanding what key design factors must be considered when undertaking a redeployment, to life extensions and identifying and eliminating vessel vulnerabilities in relation to field development plans. He will further share strategies and lessons learned from effective FPSO redeployments.
Puneet will deliver his highly anticipated annual State of the FPSO Nation address, providing an analysis of the current state of the FPSO market and wider oil and gas industry, assessing the offshore E&P climate as well as examining data on upcoming field developments and the potential application of FPSOs therein.
Skarfjell Facility Manager
Wintershall Norge AS
Suet Ling will address how to deliver a cost-effective field development in today’s market climate with a focus on the Skarfjell development project. She will explore what is driving E&P development projects in light of the current oil price environment; what oil companies require from an FPSO or other field development option and how those cost considerations fit into the entire field development project.
Walker Ridge Facilities Area Manager
Jeremiah will address how to optimize mooring condition monitoring and integrity for reduced OPEX. This session will explore accounting for mooring integrity and condition monitoring from initial design; overcoming challenges between the design and operational phases for turret and mooring systems; and harnessing data to illustrate a complete picture of the mooring system to predict and respond to potential faults.
Managing Director, FPSO Business Unit
Bernard will address an FPSO contractor’s perspective on delivering cost-effective FPSOs in the current oil price environment. He will explore how – if given complete autonomy – an FPSO contractor would set about delivering projects in the shortest timespan at the lowest possible cost, and what aspects of the FPSO project lifecycle would be conducted differently.
LADOL Free Zone
Amy will address opportunities in local content compliance and FPSO project delivery in West Africa. This session will address achieving local content compliance in West Africa and the status of regional infrastructure development. It will further discuss the future of FPSO opportunities and infrastructure availability in Nigeria and West Africa.
Nicolas will address revisiting project engineering and execution to reduce costs and timelines. The session will analyse potential efficiencies gained from reverting to a more simplified and systematic approach to engineering; how oil companies perceive risk, and if they are ready to adopt a “goal-setting” approach as opposed to a prescriptive one when it comes to engineering and execution.
Deputy Project Manager MODEC
Amul will address aligning engineering and construction deliverables for streamlined project execution. He will explore common challenges and disconnects between engineering and construction teams; standardisation vs. customisation to simplify engineering and construction and the critical early decisions that must be made in equipment selection and procurement of long-lead items through early engagement of project partners.
