About the Report

The increasing offshore exploration and production activities due to the surging demand for energy amid prolonged energy security issues, and government support to boost domestic energy production is driving the UK FPSO market growth.


However, the rising demand to reduce emissions from the oil and gas sector and the rapid renewable energy installations such as solar and wind (both offshore and onshore) are expected to restrain the growth of FPSO market in the UK.


UK Government Support for Oil & Gas Sector 

Along with the development of offshore wind and other renewable energy sources, the government of the UK has also focused on achieving self-sustainability in terms fossil fuels supply until renewables are fully developed. 


The UK government lifted the ban on shale gas extraction in England in order to increase the country's energy security and announced its support for a new round of oil and gas licensing in September 2022. 


The proactive governmental support by issuing new oil and gas licenses has resulted in increasing activities in the oil and gas sector, positively impacting the UK FPSO market.


The United Kingdom is expected to have five upcoming FPSOs by the year 2025, placing it in second place worldwide among all countries in terms of FPSO contracts awarded.


Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 and the falling crude oil price were a double blow for the FPSO industry, which was suffering the aftershocks of a turbulent market. To keep costs down, FPSO production businesses concentrated primarily on transforming existing tankers into FPSOs.

Due to the COVID pandemic, the major under-construction projects to build floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessels were delayed in China, South Korea, and Singapore owing to staffing and supply shortages.


Recent Key Developments

  • A circular floating production, storage, and offloading FPSO vessel built by China's Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) bound for Shell's oil and gas project off the UK is currently headed to the North Sea.
  • The Sevan Hummingbird FPSO unit will be redeployed by Ping Petroleum UK in order to advance its Avalon development project in the middle of the UK North Sea. The cylindrical FPSO, with a hull diameter of 60 meters, has an oil production capacity of up to 30,000 barrels of oil per day and can store 270,000 barrels of oil.
