This is attributable to the increasing demand for energy worldwide that is anticipated to propel the demand for advanced FPSO units. Fortune Business Insights, in its latest report, titled, “FPSO Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Storage Capacity (Less than 1 MMBBLs, 1-2 MMBBLs, and More than 2 MMBBLs) By Water Depth (Shallow Water, Deepwater, and Ultra-Deepwater), By Construction Type (Converted and New Build), By Hull Type (Single Hull and Double Hull), By Ownership (Contractor Owned {Contractor Managed and Operator Managed} and Operator Owned {Contractor Managed and Operator Managed}), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027.”, observes that the market stood at USD 13.06 billion in 2019 and is likely to exhibit an impressive CAGR of 14.3% between 2020 and 2027.

Tamarind Resources Acquires Rubicon Intrepid FPSO to Maintain Oil Field Profitability

In November 2020, Tamarind Resources announced the acquisition of Rubicon’s Intrepid vessel to improve performance and achieve operational excellence of the under-exploited oil fields. In the sidelines of the volatility in the world oil process, the company aims to achieve innovative methods to maintain oil field profitability. The Rubicon Intrepid, which is converted into a floating production storage and offloading unit from a shuttle tanker, has been operational at the Galoc field offshore located at SC14C, Northwest Palawan, Philippines since October 2008.

Increasing Global Energy Demand to Promote Growth

In September 2019, the U.S. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) asserted that half of the global energy consumption will come from the non-Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Asian nations that includes China and India by 2050. The increasing demand for energy is expected to boost the adoption of FPSO units for producing and processing hydrocarbons, along with storing oil across the globe. Moreover, the growing demand for crude oil derived petrochemicals from developed and developing economies is expected to bode well for the global FPSO market growth in the forthcoming years.

Contract Signing by Prominent Companies to Expand their Product Portfolio & Boost Sales Revenue

The global market for FPSO is fragmented by the presence of major companies striving to leverage the lucrative opportunities to strengthen their positions. These companies are focusing on signing significant contracts with government agencies and other private companies to expand their FPSO portfolio and further gain a competitive edge over their rivals in the highly competitive global marketplace.
