The entire FPSO value chain is now critically aware of how conventional modes of cooperation and project delivery must change in light of the market climate. With this understanding comes an unprecedented opportunity to improve the processes and standards of the FPSO industry for long-term sustainability and growth.
The FPSO Europe Congress 2017 builds on these themes, lending a particular focus to FPSO Value Preservation and Operational Excellence, taking an in-depth look at case studies and technologies that have helped enhance the value and productivity of existing FPSOs, analyze strategies to successful FPSO redeployment, and continue strategic discussions surrounding greater trust and collaboration across the value chain.
