9:30 AM Realistic Evaluation of Oil Markets in 2018 and the next 3 years

For the past few years, depressed oil prices are forcing some oil operators to shut down or shrink their production activities, including FPSOs. But with oil prices slowly inching up past the $60/bbl in recent weeks, how will this affect the future direction of the industry? This session will look at the current underpinnings that could affect the direction of oil markets in 2018 while determining the feasibility of a project at the current price level. It will also look at implications for the future of deep water projects and the FPSO industry.
