9:10 am - 10:00 am POWER PANEL DISCUSSION: Evaluating the Impact of COVID-19 on the Global FPSO Market, $30 Billion of E&P Investments and Its Project Deliverable

Mr Curtis Lohr - Former Project Director - Stones, Shell
Mr Filipe Costa - Project Manager – FPSO & Production, Yinson Production
Mr Joseph Azran-Alemberg - FPSO Delivery Manager, Jadestone Energy

Out of a global total of 28 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels that are under construction, 22 are being built at shipyards in China, South Korea and Singapore that are heavily affected by COVID-19. If the epidemic escalates, the delays could increase to nine or even 12 months, especially taking into account the restricted time windows for heavy transport, installation and hook-up. The average development time for an FPSO is 36 months, meaning that companies could face a 30% delay.


  • Overcoming up to 30% delays in project deliveries due to extensive staffing and supply shortages in COVID-19 affected countries
  • Managing project management issues such travel bans restrict contractors, engineering firms, certification companies and E&P officials from accessing shipyards
  • Discussing fast-tracking developments strategies and effective business contingency plans to reduce project delays

Mr Kelvin Sam - Principal Researcher, IHS Markit

This session aims to discuss the state of the FPSO nation and market trends in upcoming near future. As the FPSO market is set to grow from its current market value of just over $28 billion to $30 billion by 2025. Ongoing offshore exploration and production activities compelled by depletion of onshore oil & gas reserves are poised to transform market trends over 2019-2025. On top of that, at least 33 FPSOs are expected to be sanctioned from 2019 to 2021 due to the pick-up in oil and gas activities in the offshore sector.


  • Analysing the current state of global oil and gas market, as well as, E&P opportunities
  • Recapping recent field developments and exploring upcoming FPSO project opportunities
  • Exploring new and upcoming projects and FID updates in Africa, South America and Asia
