The Market - Brazilian Activity Driving Growth

The new edition of Douglas-Westwood’s World Floating Production Report forecasts capital expenditure over the next five years will total $68 billion.

Douglas-Westwood estimates that Latin America will account for half of all FPS expenditure over theperiod. Much of this activity will take place off Brazil where Petrobras and OGX plan to install a large number of locally sourced units. Many of Petrobras’ units will be installed in the deepwater Santos basin where the company is using multi-FPS developments as a way of exploiting its pre-salt reserves.
