(EnergyAsia, June 26, Friday) – The second annual FPSO summit will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from August 17 to 19.

More than 30 FPSO owners and operators will be sharing strategies in dealing with newbuilds and projects in conversion.

The event will feature a multi-disciplinary coverage of the world’s first floating, drilling, production, storage and operation (FDPSO) vessel including its design, construction, commissioning and operations.

Speakers will provide critical insights into shifting LNG tankers to floating LNG (FLNG) or floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) to commercialise gas fields in remote locations.

The event will also provide access to several service providers that will be able to make a cost-benefit analysis on risers, mooring systems, topside design and construction and holistic project management for vessels.

Last year’s conference attracted more than 200 delegates and organiser Strategic Business Networks said the number might double this year as more players in the offshore value chain are expected to attend.
