November 2017 Monthly Floating Production Systems Report

As detailed in the November WER report, ordering activity for production floaters continues to accelerate. In mid-November Statoil selected Sembcorp for a $490 million contract to build the FPSO hull for the Johan Castberg field in the Barents Sea. This order brings the number of FPSO contracts to nine so far in 2017 – vs. three in 2015 and none in 2016. A second FPSO contract, for the North Sea Penguins field, is widely rumored to be near contract award, with Fluor as the EPC contractor.
