EM&I to Host the 40th FPSO Research Forum

November 27th, 2017

EM&I are delighted to report that they will be hosting the 40th FPSO Research Forum JIP week in April 2018 and for the first time in the UK.

In the FPSO Research Forum, oil companies, operators, contractors, yards, research institutes and safety authorities share their experience of FPSOs. Subjects covering the complete lifecycle from concept development to operation are presented in the Forum and new ideas and development plans are discussed.

The Forum was initiated by the participants in the FPSO Integrity JIP in 1998 and has been meeting twice a year since. The Forum’s open meetings form a part of the FPSO JIP week in which Joint Industry Projects related to FPSO R&D have their progress meetings.

The 40th anniversary event will take place in Cumbria, UK from the 9th – 13th April.

The theme will be ‘Asset Integrity in a $50 Barrel World’ and further details will be announced nearer the time.
