The Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Market 2015-2025: Prospects for New Build and

NEW YORK, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Report DetailsFloating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels are a competitive solution for the development of offshore oil fields. This is especially the case when E&P operations are performed in challenging environments and marginal fields where alternative infrastructure, such as oil pipelines, are insufficient or would require excessive capital investment in order to be completed.With the rate of new onshore discoveries at a historic low and technology enabling exploration in unprecedented depths, production in deepwater and ultra-deepwater has gained the spotlight in the oil industry. Demand for new-build and converted FPSO vessels have benefitted from this trend. The oil price fall and the completion of a wave of projects in the next two years will change the dynamics of the market and growth will fall subsequently.
