The FPSO Symposium’s third edition will happen on the 26th and 27th of September 2024 and is one of the most significant Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading events in the world.

The second edition occurred in September 2023, with Petrobras, Shell, MODEC, RelayOnNutec, Equinor, Chevron, SLB, Enauta, Yinson, Ecopetrol, and PJV sponsorship. With 250 audience members, 30% more than the 2022 first edition, from many operators, consultants, and service companies.

The geographical conditions and the remote location of the Deep Waters reservoirs, notably the deep pre-salt giant fields, present a favorable environment for FPSO platforms.

Despite already having the most significant number of FPSOs in operation for many years, there are still accurate projections for the entry of many other FPSOs into production during the following years.

Based on this scenario, the Brazilian Society of Petroleum Engineers – SPE, through its Sections Brazil and Macaé, will hold the third edition of SPE Symposium FPSO 2024 to have professionals from different areas together to share lessons learned and discuss the next generations of FPSOs. Integrating multidisciplinary knowledge is essential for consolidating the worldwide chain of FPSOs design, management, operation, and construction necessary in the coming years.

In addition to the special sessions, there are technical roundtables to discuss critical challenges.

The event will be at Windsor Florida Hotel – R. Ferreira Viana, 81 – Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro – RJ, Brazil. The language is English, and professionals from other countries are very welcome.
