Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel is the most common type of oil and gas floating production system in use today, accounting for over 60% of all floating production systems in the world. FPSOs are either converted from oil tanker.

FPSOs find application especially in fields that are too far offshore for building an economical pipeline infrastructure. Most FPSOs operational today are also capable of operating in harsh environments that offshore fields present. FPSOs have an advantage over fixed production platforms in that, in the case of harsh weather conditions, they can release their mooring and riser turret systems and move away or be towed away. Once the weather returns to normal, the FPSO can return, connect its riser turret and continue production. FPSOs also offer the advantage that they can be deployed in varying water depths, from shallow to deep-water fields. FPSOs make oil extraction from small oil fields feasible. The small quantities of reserves that these fields would not justify the construction of fixed oil platforms.

North and South America are going to lead the market followed by the other regions. This is due to the increase in the investments in the exploration and production, especially in Brazil and Gulf of Mexico, which are acting as the most prospective markets for FPSOs in the Americas. Offshore West Africa, South East Asia, Australia and The North Sea form other important markets. The FPSO market can be segmented into shallow water as well as deep & ultra-deep water based on the water depths that the FPSOs operate at. Another classification of FPSOs can be done on the basis of the basis of the type of product that they produce, into oil, LPG, LNG and others.

The major companies that are discussed in this report include BP, Chevron, SBM Offshore, Shell and MODEC among others.

This report elucidates the current situation of the FPSO market around the world and studies it by product type and water depth. The report is also divided by geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Africa & Middle East. The market share of each region is analyzed and an estimate is provided for the next 5 years.
