In the coming years, there will be a growing demand for Floating Production and Storage Units (FPSOs) for ultra deep waters (greater than 2000 m [6,000 feet]). In the Gulf of Mexico, the technical and economical limitations inherent to other type of concepts, the lack of pipeline infrastructure in such deep areas, and the wide acceptance of the FPSOconcept by Shelf Authorities will accelerate this process.
