The company’s report: ‘Q3 2019 Global FPSO Industry Outlook – Brazil Continues to Lead Upcoming FPSOs Growth’ reveals that Brazil will also lead globally on crude production capacity through upcoming FPSOs with 2430 thousand bpd during the outlook period.

Among the 20 upcoming FPSOs to be deployed in Brazil by 2025, 11 are planned with identified development plans while nine are early-stage announced FPSOs that are undergoing conceptual studies and are expected to be approved for development. Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras), the state-owned company of Brazil, will operate 13 out of these 20 FPSOs.

Soorya Tejomoortula, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “In Brazil, the Mero (Libra Noroeste) field is expected to have the highest deployment of four upcoming FPSOs by 2025; Marlim and Lula Oeste are the additional key offshore fields in the country with two FPSO deployments each during the outlook period.”

GlobalData identifies Angola as the second highest country globally with five upcoming FPSOs by 2025. All the upcoming FPSOs in the country are announced FPSOs. Sonangol P&P and Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Ltd lead the deployments in the country with two FPSOs each.

Nigeria follows Angola with the deployment of four FPSOs, of which three are announced and one is planned. Yinson Holdings Bhd is the operator of the planned FPSO, Abigail-Joseph.

Brazil, Angola, and Nigeria are expected to contribute around 62% of global crude production capacity through FPSOs by 2025.
