Research: FPSO activity and financing set to increase dramatically by 2012 - www.fpsoasia.com
The FPSO Network, along with the 12th annual FPSO congress conducted a survey with close to 3,000
FPSO professionals and the general consensus in the industry at the moment seems to be that FPSO
activity levels in 2011 and 2012 will surpass that in 2010.
And it seems that the growth of activity in FPSO sector seems to be a result of increased financing which
disappeared during the financial crisis. 86.1 percent of those polled believes that FPSO financing is set to
rise again in 2011 and 2012, 44.4 percent believe that the dynamics of the operator – owner contracting regime
will shift towards a 50 – 50 percent risk division, 47.2 percent of the respondents expects financing to
remain at its current status.
Unsurprisingly, 44.4 percent of the survey respondents predict equity fund raising to be the most viable
financing option for FPSO projects in the next couple of years. And although a quarter of the respondents believe that
alternative project funding structures - leveraging on export credit will be the way forward for FPSO
financing, 16.7 percent of the respondents believe that debt financing will be the future of FPSO
The 12th Annual FPSO Congress, held from the 19th to the 22nd of September will cover the commercial
and technical aspects of FPSOs globally.
