Strategies for Avoiding FPSO Disputes

Strategies for Avoiding FPSO Disputes

Track and respond to all correspondence – including emails. Failure to respond suggests agreement. Make calendar appointments reflecting meetings with the other contracting parties. Establish procedure to record in detail what happens at meetings with the other parties (include a list of documents exchanged or reviewed). Notify other party to contract when information/action from them is needed (and is missing), and only then take corrective action. Specifically complain in writing about any delays/ problems/ potential claims under the contract and provide prompt written notice of problems/breaches.

FPSO Executive Summary

FPSO Executive Summary

The dip in oil prices that has plagued the oil and gas industry in the past 24 months has not spared the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) sector. The “bankability” of FPSO projects, those whose parameters fall in line with the expectations of financing institutions, is of crucial import at a time when potential financiers are looking to limit their exposure to a business that is in the trough of a wave. In this analysis, we ask a panel of experts from the financial part of the industry what they think would best advance the bankability of an FPSO project in such an adverse climate.

2017 State of the FPSO Nation Report

After the lowest number of awards in three decades, the floating solutions industry is striking back against the oil price depression. In this exclusive 14-page report created in conjuction with the FPSO Network and Oil & Gas IQ's combined 170,000 subscriber base, we have reached out to the FPSO community to define some the key areas and pain points that need to be tackled if the sector is to win in the current oil price environment. Covering everything from the top three reasons for overruns to the primary drivers for technology selection and focus areas for improvement, the widest-reaching analysis of its kind is a must-read to understand the most pressing issues for those on both sides of the operator and contractor divide.
4 Ways That You Can Align Concept and Execution To Reduce Costs

4 Ways That You Can Align Concept and Execution To Reduce Costs

Define to refine. Optimise your optimisation phase. Drive to standardise wherever possible. Ensure continuity.

Allow for proper definition of the technical solutions before the execution phase of a project. An optimisation phase in the framework is a good place to start. The more time spent on definition before EPC, the more value will be garnered for the project.

6 Ways To Enhance The Bankability Of Your FPSO Project

6 Ways To Enhance The Bankability Of Your FPSO Project

Be candid about the facts that underpin your project. Group your assets and piggy-back off existing developments. Simplification of the relationship between charterer and contractor vis-à-vis risk allocation.Innovate in your approach to financing for field development. What happens upstream, stays upstream. Be open to a new age of financing.

Some of the basics that underlie the field economics of your development must be parted with, such as an approximate breakeven point and the P50 and P90 reserves estimate of the project in hand. Some frankness about these fundamentals can help allay fears that a bank may have.
