Brazil will also lead globally on crude production capacity through upcoming floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels with 2,430 thousand barrels per day (mbd) between 2019 and 2025.

A total of 20 planned and announced floating FPSOs are expected to be deployed offshore Brazil during the outlook period, the highest among countries globally, revealed a report by ResearchAndMarkets.

Among the 20 upcoming FPSOs to be deployed in Brazil by 2025, 11 are planned with identified development plans while nine are early-stage announced FPSOs that are undergoing conceptual studies and are expected to be approved for development.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras), the state-owned company of Brazil, will operate 13 out of these 20 FPSOs.

In Brazil, the Mero (Libra Noroeste) field is expected to have the highest deployment of four upcoming FPSOs by 2025; Marlim and Lula Oeste are the additional key offshore fields in the country with two FPSO deployments each during the outlook period.

Angola stands as the second highest country globally with five upcoming FPSOs by 2025. All the upcoming FPSOs in the country are announced FPSOs. Sonangol P&P and Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Ltd lead the deployments in the country with two FPSOs each.

Nigeria follows Angola with the deployment of four FPSOs, of which three are announced and one is planned. Yinson Holdings Bhd is the operator of the planned FPSO, Abigail-Joseph. Brazil, Angola, and Nigeria are expected to contribute around 62% of global crude production capacity through FPSOs by 2025.
