Highlights from FPSO Europe Congress 2017
The FPSO Europe Congress opened with a keynote address from Congress Chairman Duncan Peace of Crondall Energy. Duncan recapped the state of the market, and touched on the need for process intensification, embracing new technology, automation, delivering efficiency and reducing lifecycle costs for FPSO projects.
Mark Mclean from Rystad Energy then provided an optimistic view about the oil price forecast, where he forecasted a $65-75 range to ensure sustainability in the market. In addition to that, Mark provided a compelling case to why deepwater developments would pick up by end of 2017.
This was followed by the FPSO Industry Power Panel Discussion, where leading CXOs and figures from Teekay Offshore, MODEC, SBM Offshore, BP, Premier Oil and Dresser-Rand, A Siemens Business debated on the direction of the oil and gas and FPSO market and more importantly, the key strategies to ensure value preservation, cost reduction and increased operational efficiency.
The afternoon sessions featured the interactive working groups, a platform which allowed interactive dialogue and discussion among all the delegates. The working groups in our technical stream focused on digitization and operational excellence for FPSO projects while the commercial stream topics looked at risk and compliance issues.
We signed off Day 1 in style, with our Annual Congress Cocktail Reception hosted by Teekay Offshore, as delegates and speakers kicked back, networked and enjoyed themselves over drinks and canapés.
Day 2 kicked off with an unprecedented joint presentation between BP and Teekay Offshore as Stuart Shaw, Deepwater Area Operations Manager, BP and Stig Morton, Vice President Operations, Teekay Offshore provided an insightful case study on the Foinaven FPSO.
This was followed by our interactive working groups in the plenary hall, which allowed delegates to deep dive into 4 key strategic, commercial and operational themes. Each working group was led by an oil company/FPSO contractor executive and co-facilitated by a solution and service provider.
The Congress ended with the closing keynote from Michael Wyllie, Group Technology Director, SBM Offshore as he touched on standardization as a quantifiable path to cost savings in the current market climate.
