Floating Production Systems 

WorleyParsons provides a comprehensive world class specialist engineering and project delivery service in floating production systems, strengthened by our contractor and concept independent approach.

The Industry
The floating production sector is one of the most capital-intensive areas of the offshore oil and gas market with key infrastructural and technological challenges.

Oil and gas discoveries are being made in deeper waters, remote from other infrastructure, in more extreme climatic conditions, often with increasing environmental expectations and this has called for progressively advancing technologies and strategies in order to deliver a consistently robust production capability.

Early engagement of a world-class specialist, with a proven track record, which can also provide an unbiased and independent assessment of the best development solution for customers’ projects, is becoming increasingly important.
