Region :Global | Report ID: FBI101388 | Status : Ongoing



Oil & gas exploration and production activities in offshore locations have substantially increased. Fossil fuels comprise a significant share in the global energy consumption mix. Rising energy demand for various operations has led big operators to explore more potential reserves. Various O&G products and by-products are used in different residential, commercial, and industrial applications.

Crude oil refining results in a range of products including asphalt, tars, lubricants, fertilizers, pesticides, textiles, dyes, paints, and various others. Platform Supply Vessels (PSV) are mainly used to transport different fuel and materials to offshore oil & gas platforms. PSVs are loaded at a shore base and carry with goods and equipment on large decks and unload the goods in bulk capacity on the drilling rigs or production platforms in the sea.

On the basis of type, the Platform Supply Vessels (PSV) market can be segmented into cargo and support. Cargo PSVs are readily used to carry huge tanks with a range of goods like pulverized cement, diesel fuel, drilling mud, barite, bentonite, and other chemicals used in the drilling process. While Support type of platform supply vessels are operated to carry large equipment & specialty tools on the deck and are designed with different systems for safety measures.
