Drawing experience from numerous new-build design, conversion and upgrade projects undertaken by the speakers over the past quarter century, this presentation will consider and discuss the history together with recent and potential future developments of FPSOs.

This lecture will consider the many conflicting and diverse design and operational criteria that are addressed coherently during the design process to produce robust, safe and cost effective solutions for an offshore industry operating in a financially constrained environment.
