The FPSO Congress is the world’s largest platform which gathers senior and key stakeholders from oil companies, vessel contractors, financiers, legal firms, shipyards, EPCs and solution providers together over 4 days annually to discuss the latest trends, projects and opportunities in the market.
2014 will mark the 15th anniversary of the world's largest FPSO World Congress in Singapore. Starting out from humble beginnings, the Congress has grown from strength to strength annually, establishing its place as the leading global platform for oil companies, vessel contractors, financiers, shipyards and industry stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities pertaining to the market.
As we look forward to the challenges and issues in the FPSO market this year, be it market trends, FPSO business models, conversions vs new builds, own-operate vs leasing, deepwater projects, large-scale FPSOs, topside technology, project management, FPSO contracting, FPSO financing, shipyard capabilities, local content, emerging markets, FPSO lifecycle development and FPSO operations, one fact remains the same- FPSOs are here to stay.
This year, the Congress continues to grow in quality and depth, as we hear not only from the FPSO conversion business, but also from the oil companies and FPSO new build stakeholders, focusing on the best practices in FPSO project delivery and safe and efficient operations. It is our vision that the mainstay strategic, commercial and technical themes will complement this new area of focus-the FPSO Lifecycle Development from conception to execution and operations.
Utilising FPSOs to monetise both marginal and deep water fields around the world will continue to dominate the oil and gas industry's discussions and the 15th Annual FPSO World Congress is premier and globally-recognised platform by the industry to take these discussions to the new level. At this year's Congress, partnerships will be forged, businesses will be won and decisions will be made- Welcome to the world's largest gathering place for the FPSO Community.
