The FPSO market is at a stage of cautious optimism. While oil prices have generally stabilised and market activities are picking up, it is increasingly difficult to get border-line, marginal projects pushed forward. In this Power Panel, industry leaders will address the main inhibitors that prevent projects from progressing and discuss practical strategies to overcome these challenges.

  • Streamlining processes for enhanced project conceptualisation, execution and deployment
  • Transforming FPSO operations for increased productivity and reduced costs
  • Overcoming the financing bottleneck to push FPSO projects forward
  • Re-defining project execution to achieve on-time and on-budget delivery

10:30 am - 10:50 am Speed Networking Session

10:50 am - 11:20 am Morning Break

In the current low oil price context, financing remains one of the biggest challenges for oil companies and FPSO contractors alike. With the negative reputation of “budget overruns and project delays” leading to high risk aversion, conventional project financing strategies are no longer sufficient to meet the extensive investments required for FPSO and field development projects. It is therefore mission critical to deep-dive into major financing issues, understand what financiers need to make the economics work and explore innovative financing models that are mutually beneficial to oil companies, FPSO contractors and financiers.

  • Assessing the investment appetite for FPSO and field development projects in the current market
  • Determining the bankability of projects – Looking beyond just the FPSO and assessing field economics as a whole to obtain financing
  • Analysing current and emerging innovative schemes, and alternative funding models – Are we approaching financing the right way? Which models are most conducive?
  • Overcoming barriers and mitigating potential risks involved in FPSO and field development project finance
  • Designing tailored and innovative ways to help small-mid oil companies obtain financing for FPSO projects
