About the Report

China is a major player in the FPSO market, with a number of domestic companies involved in the design, construction, and operation of these vessels. China's shipbuilding industry is one of the largest in the world, and the country has a strong track record in the construction of offshore platforms and vessels.


The demand for FPSOs in China is increasing as the country has sought to develop its offshore oil and gas reserves. The China FPSO market growth is being driven by a combination of factors, including the depletion of onshore reserves, the rising cost of oil and gas production, and the need to reduce its dependence on energy imports.


To meet this demand, Chinese companies have invested heavily in the design and construction of FPSOs, with a number of domestic yards and shipbuilders specializing in this type of vessel. In addition, Chinese companies have also been involved in the leasing and operation of FPSOs in other countries, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.


According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), China maintained its dominance in the worldwide shipbuilding industry in the first half of 2022, holding 45.2 percent of the global market share. Chinese Shipyards finished 18.5 million deadweight tons (DWT) of orders, ranking first in the world.


Overall, the FPSO market in China is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, as the country looks to expand its offshore oil and gas production and reduce its reliance on imported energy.


Recent Key Developments

  • In November 2022, a cylindrical floating production storage and offloading FPSO vessel built by the Offshore Oil Engineering Co., Ltd. for Shell plc was successfully delivered in Qingdao, Shandong Province, east China. With a storage capacity of 400,000 barrels of crude oil, it is the heaviest FPSO unit in China. The vessel will be deployed in the north sea.
  • SBM Offshore awarded the FPSO order to CSSC (China State Shipbuilding Corporation) in August 2022. The FPSO unit will be able to hold 2.3 million barrels of crude oil.
  • China's Cosco Shipping Heavy Industry is closing in on significant FPSO contracts to construct the hulls and topsides modules for two different floating production, storage, and offloading vessels that will be deployed offshore Brazil with Singapore's Sembcorp Marine and Japan's Modec.


Trends in China FPSO Market

  • China is redeploying some of its major FPSOs in the South China Sea after an overhaul. For instance, the Hai Yang Shi You 116 floating production, storage, and offloading vessel has been released in the South China Sea by Chinese floater owner and operator CNOOC Energy Technology & Services (CNOOC EnerTech) for a significant overhaul to increase its production capacity.
  • Increasing use of modern technology: Chinese businesses have led the way in developing and implementing advanced technologies for floating production systems, such as automated drilling systems, enhanced process control systems, and data analytics. These technologies are being applied to save costs while increasing the effectiveness and safety of FPSO operations.
