Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) is a uniquely designed vessel unit that is widely used across oil and gas industry as a means for production as well as storage of massive quantities of hydrocarbons from offshore basins. The vessel is effectively applied across varying water depth levels for storage and allows processing of crude oil which is typically produced from the wells. Manufacturing of this special vessel either involves utilization of an existing ship which is further modified for enhanced characteristics or by developing an entirely new unit from scratch.
The unit houses a variety of equipment with capabilities of crude oil segregation thereby enabling contractors with efficient management. Along with offloading the output, these features reduce their need for a separate pipeline infrastructure. Global floating production storage and offloading market players are advancing alongside new peers entering the market with a view of reforming the current systems and technologies. The exceeding number of market participants driving new models and strategies along with the significant upgradation of the FPSO technology is contributing towards strengthening the market landscape.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) :
Extensively pacing expansion in oil and gas exploration and production across offshore fields, deep water and ultra-deep water is expected to propel the opportunities of the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) market enhancing the growth prospects through the forecast years. Surging energy demand globally are one of the primary factors boosting the FPSO market growth. A number of developed as well as developing countries are experiencing drastic rise in energy consumption for the last few years.
Soaring demand escalation for long-term sustainable fuel sources is poised to facilitate the FPSO market growth during the forecast years. In addition, a substantial growth in the number of offshore drilling activities, increased flexibility is attributed as the positive characteristics contributing to a rise in the demand for the special type of vessel. Costs of installation is another added advantage as FPSO is relatively cost-effective alternative to installation of permanent structures. Exploration and exploitation activities of marginal oil reserves increasing substantially across offshore regions coupled with flexibility and enhanced capacity of FPSOs is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast.
Based on type of construction, the market is classified into converted, redeployed and new-build FPSOs. New-build construction segment accounts for a dominating market share and is likely to continue to do so over the forecast period owing to the higher construction costs with newly built vessels along with an array of configuration options with an appealing design flexibility. The converted FPSO segment is also projecting considerable growth due to the low capital expenditure and relatively short procurement cycles.
Hull Type Segment
In terms of hull type, the market is divided into single and double hull. The double hull FPSOs segment is estimated to be the fastest growing segment over the forecast period owing to the advantages offered such as reduced risks of oil spillage and provision of a dedicated containment area driving the demand for double hull vessels. Single hull is also expected to grow gradually as they offer design stability.
Based on propulsion, the market is bifurcated into towed and self-propelled. The self-propelled FPSO vessels are anticipated to account for maximum share over the forecast period as the transportation costs associated with these vessels is comparatively affordable than the towed FPSOs. Self-propelled require no external propulsion and are thus perceived as a more convenient and cost-effective alternative fuelling the demand for self-propelled FPSOs.
In terms of end-use, the market is categorized into ultra-deep-water, deep-water and shallow water. Deepwater segment is holds promising growth scales and is expected to dominate the FPSO market over the forecast years. Growing preferences of E&P companies inclining towards deeper reservoirs for production along with the ongoing discovery of dee-water reserves is accelerating the deep-water segment. Shallow water segment is also estimated to grow sustainably accounting for a significant market share over the forecast.
The FPSO (floating production storage and offloading) market has dominant presence across Asia Pacific and the region is expected to be one of the leading regional hotspots of the global marketspace. The growth is primarily driven by the surging energy demand across developing economies with larger energy and offshore infrastructure.
North America also displays a flourished floating production storage and offloading market and is expected to offer lucrative opportunities owing to the high production targets coupled with the prevalence of industry giants. Middle East and Africa is positioned to experience the most significant growth over the forecast timespan establishing itself as a key region for the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) market expansion. It can be attributed to the increasing investments in the offshore asset’s exploration encouraging discovery of new bulk reserves.
