1 Safinah Ltd The resource to manage your coating risk – minimising your costs wherever you are European Coatings Conference Review of the FPSO Market

2 Oil forever? “ The Stone Age did not end for lack of stone, and the Oil Age will end long before the world runs out of oil.” - Sheikh Zaki Yamani, a Saudi Arabian who served as his country's oil minister three decades ago.

3 A bit of history Huntingdon Beach California 1948 $126 for a plot of land free with an encyclopaedia set

4 Lake Maracaibo Venezuela 1960’s Caspian sea 100 miles offshore

5 Finally offshore Louisiana 1947 first system out of sight of land Kerr McGee

6 Offshore systems Civil Engineers Naval Architects Engineering Co.

7 FPSO Initially for deep water harsh environments Not suitable for main GOM – shallow water However –Low time to build or convert and reduced costs –Result in use in shallow water also as cost effective

8 FPSO Floating Production Storage Offloading First FPSO “Shell Castelon” built in 1977 in Spain Not to be confused with FSO

9 Market in Service by number

10 On order by number

11 Order time line No. of FPSO

12 Where are they being built *Includes full and modules

13 Projects planned Mar 2008 – 86 Mar 2011 – 124 Mar 2013 – 154

14 Fleet age profile

15 Next 5 years Likely to be sustained at Mar 2008 levels for next 5 years. –World GDP –Demand for Oil declines in developed countries e.g.US Car fuel consumptions targets –Shale oils and other sources –Oil price high at present –Rising costs/delays/capacity

16 New build issues Available hulls for conversion as opposed to new build Local content requirements Price/Finance Schedule Capacity Bigger vessels and deeper water

17 Capacity increasing Demand is on the increase with Europe mainly going for new builds and or re- deployment (80:20) – high fatigue demand Rest of the world relying on conversions, then new builds and the redeployment (50:40:10)

18 New challenges Development in subsea tie ups Price of oil EOR systems improved Larger fields ~ larger units Smaller fields ~ tie back Pipeline capability/technology. Temperatures and chemical make up AIM – Asset Integrity Management Life Extension

19 AIM and Life Extension The big challenge together with Life Extension programmes –1 FPSO – 10% of total workforce man-hours on fighting corrosion Looking to add up to years on design life Want to maintain – spend on coatings Permanent means of access Anodes

20 Coating issues New build specification Maintenance specification Repair specification Harsh environments –Africa - high corrosion - low fatigue –N.Sea - high fatigue – low corrosion –Edges

21 Coating management Need to engineer solutions –Performance specifications –Processes and procedures –Data recording and mapping –Assessment of coating life –Benchmark testing

22 Coating system needs Life expectancy – 25 years Through life maintenance Conservative at New Build (yards) Owners pay the price.. CAPEX vs OPEX

23 Key attributes New build Match the process Match the location/timing Shop primer weathering/welding Min number of coats Compliance/Norsok etc. Low Al content Age onset embrittlement Edges M&R Ease of M or R Process compliant Alternative technologies Harsh environments Time frames Environmental control

24 Anti Fouling To coat or not to coat –Biocide technology –Biocide free technology –Abrasion/impact –Ice Load on mooring systems can add huge costs. New solutions?

25 Other areas Cargo tanks –High temperatures –Sulphur content Ballast tanks –Critical –Higher temps –Reverse impact

26 Other areas Decks/Turrets –Restricted ventilation –Complex structures –Poor coating system solutions in service

27 Coating demand Based on a generic scheme Based on a generic FPSO Serves as an indicator not an absolute

28 Vessel areas Vessel dwt - 110,000 Length- 240m Breadth- 40m Depth- 23m Topside weight t

29 Typical areas Area nameArea size sqm UW hull7000 UW hull sides5000 Boottop3000 Topsides3500 Decks10000 Superstructure3500 Cargo tanks (total)60000 Cargo tanks (min)17000 Ballast tanks Slop tanks and reserves3200 FW tanks800 Engine room11000 Void spaces2000 Topside structural steel36000 Topside piping9000 Total * Topside equip Vendor coated Vague Specs.

30 Challenges Focus on M&R solutions Focus on benchmark testing Focus on survey/data collection (all in one service) Focus on complimentary technologies Demand will increase as current NB specs are simply not good enough.
