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

4:10 pm - 4:50 pm YARD OF CHOICE: ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION EXCELLENCE TO DELIVER FPSO ON-TIME AND WITHIN BUDGET

Recently, under the traction of six tugs, the P71 FPSO (Floating production, storage and offloading units) hull built by CIMC Raffles for Petrobras left the deep-water wharf of Yantai base for the Brazilian sea area. The project is the first FPSO type delivered by CIMC raffles, marking a new breakthrough in the field of offshore oil and gas production equipment. In this session, CIMC will share how they have implemented innovative construction technologies to build FPSO faster to deliver projects on schedule


  • Leveraging on new technologies to build FPSOs faster and leverage economies of scale
  • Engineering FPSOs for labour-efficient construction, enhance output and drive project excellence
  • Increasing speed and performance of the construction process as a whole to stay within budget

Mr Chris Bowles - Head of Sales Oil & Gas Upstream, MAN Energy Solutions

45% of oil and gas mega projects suffer extended production shut-ins into the second year after first oil. These production constraints in turn make it very difficult to meet cost and revenue targets. Learn why the FPSO industry should already consider state of the art equipment in the design phase, to improve FPSO up-time and to reduce OPEX and what solutions can be implemented on existing facilities in order to assist the same goals
