What Makes FPSO Redeployment Difficult
FPSO redeployments are one of the key features that make FPSOs cost effective solutions for field developments, however this strength has been undermined by a growth in inefficiency. Now, the real barriers to successful vessel redeployment lay not so much in the expected technological challenges but instead, in the inflexibility regarding specifications, the lack of shared risks between stakeholders and the distrust present in the operator contractor relationship.
