Due to this factor, oil and gas companies have pushed exploration offshore for discovering new oil reserves. During the past six years, around 50% of the offshore discoveries have been in deepwater and ultra-deepwater. Due to this factors demand for FPSOs for offshore oil and gas production is expected to see a robust growth during the forecast period.
