Floating Production Market Update Report to 2014

The Floating Production Market Report now in its sixth edition is published each year by Infield Energy Analysts and provides a world floating production market sector review. The report is highly acclaimed as it is built from a unique bottom up approach, field development by field development, to produce a fully drillable and trackable market forecast for the floating production sector.

The Floating Production Systems Market Update Report to 2014 is an in-depth independent analysis of the global floating production system market. This is the sixth edition published by Infield Energy Analysts and has been fully re-written to include new prospects, to provide a global five year forecast to 2014.

This is the only world wide floating production market report for this sector that not only uses the list of announced floating production system prospects from the Infield Offshore Energy Database, but also uses a detailed analysis of the future fields discovered which are being planned or considered for Floating Production system development to 2014. This allows Infield's analytical team to provide detailed and comprehensive forecasts over five & ten year periods for floating production system units and values which are unavailable from other sources.

Report Overview:

The last 18 months have proved difficult for the offshore oil and gas industry; oil price volatility combined with tightening credit markets dealt a double blow. Today, with oil prices rebounding and access to credit returning, the sixth edition is essential reading for those involved in the floating production sector.

The Floating Production Systems Market:

The period October 2008 to December 2009 witnessed significant volatility in the price of crude oil, having seen it fall from a high of $147/bbl to a low of $35/bbl and subsequently return to a band between $70-$80/bbl.

This volatility has led to a particularly difficult investment environment which was compounded by liquidity constraints in the financial market, worldwide recession and a rapidly changing cost base. The consequence of these factors combining has been to delay projects and the questioning of the timescale for recovery in the offshore industry.

Today, however, as we tiptoe from the hadows of this latest downturn, the short-term market drivers, such as commodity prices and the availability of credit, are becoming more positive and this has instilled a sense of optimism throughout the industry. In turn this has led to an increase in final investment decisions and buoyed activity in the wider industry.

We also perceive there to be strong, deep-rooted fundamental drivers towards the continued development of global oil and gas fields. The first and most basic driver is demand. With many major fields, and indeed some basins, having reached maturity we are seeing some steep declines in global oil production. The level of activity required to simply maintain current production rates is significant, but when factoring in forecast demand increases it is evident that the offshore oil and gas industry will
have to go through a minor revolution in order to satisfy the global thirst for hydrocarbons. Ultimately this will push E&A activity into increasingly deeper waters and harsher environments, and it is here where a lack of exporting infrastructure and huge water depths will drive the development of the FPS market.

The outlook for the floating production market is therefore positive. The turmoil of the past eighteen months is passing and the strong, deep-rooted drivers within the oil and gas industry will ensure sustained activity and robust Capex growth throughout our forecasted period. Infield forecast strong growth within the FPS market, both in terms of Capex outlay and number of installations through to 2014.

The markets profiled in this report focus upon the four main designs of floating production platforms. Out of the markets for FPSOs, Spars, TLPs and semi- submersibles, the FPSO market is the largest by a considerable degree. The advantage of storage and offloading allows these platforms to be deployed in regions where a lack of infrastructure prohibits the development of alternative solutions, and, as such, we observe these platforms being deployed across the globe in a variety of frontier regions.

The Global Perspectives Floating Production Market Update Report To 2014 total Capex investment investment amounts to US($)61.8bn, of which 65.4% will be on FPSO’s, 14.5% on Semi- Submersibles, 9.5% on TLPs and 2.6% on Spars. Other types, such as production barges and FSOs account for 8% of the market.
