Saga been reformatted January 2018 to make it easier to find what is in it and easier to read. Content as before
The purpose of this website is to make the piece "2016 and Two FPSOs in US GoM: the Twenty Year Saga" freely available to any interested party. It has been written by FPSO industry veteran Peter Lovie, inspired by what he has seen in the last two years of how much of what we do for FPSOs in US GoM is no longer understood as industry leaders retire and leave the industry.
With 10,587 words, 16 pictures, 1 graph and 4 tables it is way too long to be published as a standard article in offshore industry trade magazines. Some feel it sometimes is not be sufficiently politically correct for them.
The piece has received very positive feedback from seasoned real practitioners familiar with what it describes. It has the approval of the five industry leaders pictured in it. In the absence of a publication to carry the full text with all its frank anecdotes, it is being self published on this website.
After publication of the original text, Peter Lovie was asked to talk about the Saga in a number of publications and events. These are provided below for immediate download:
