Floating Production Systems

IMA Consulting and Research Capabilities in the Floating Production Sector

IMA has been providing market research and strategic advisory services in the floating production sector for more than 30 years. We have worked for numerous clients at all levels of the supply chain.

Consulting Services - Our assignments have included advice on market positioning, acquiring a major leasing contractor, forming an alliance to bid for large FPSO contracts, evaluating redeployment options for FPSOs, establishing residual values in FPSO contracts, targeting unmet requirements through technology development, etc.

Floating Production Systems

Around 280 floating production systems of various types are in service worldwide and another 65+ are on order.

Production floaters are very complex systems. A deepwater production floater can easily be a $1 billion construction contract - really big units in ultradeepwater can exceed $3 billion. Their construction, leasing and operation provide very attractive business opportunities.

For more information on this business sector, please visit our monthly summary of "What's New" in the floating production sector.

Industry Research - We have produced more than 60 multi-client industry reports on the floating production sector over the past 20 years. Our "floater reports" have been a widely cited reference source in the offshore industry and our annual forecast of equipment orders has been widely referenced in investment presentations, industry publications and other consulting firm reports.

The final IMA floater report in our multi-client series was published in November 2013. IMA has now teamed up with Marine Link, the world's largest print and online maritime publisher, to create a deepwater business intelligence service. Our new company, World Energy Reports, combines IMA's floating production business experience with Marine Link's publishing/IT capability and worldwide network of industry correspondents.
