Appendix A: Relevant Publications
Peter Lovie was asked to talk about the FPSO Saga in a number of publications and events. These are provided below for immediate download:
- Lovie, P.M.: “The Lower Tertiary Trend and the Oil Export Economic Prize”, Deep Oil Technology (DOT), conference, paper 138, New Orleans, 3 February 2009, 28 pages.Sets forth the results of studies during 2007-2009 by Devon Energy on the cost effectiveness of pipeline and shuttle tanker export in deep more remote waters of U.S. GoM. Compares use of FSOs or FPSOs in these field developments.
- Round and shipshape FPSOs – serious comparisons and an entertaining comparison. Dr. Finkel’s discovery that Noah’s Ark circa 2400 BC was round – and Peter Lovie’s discovery it was the same diameter as the first round FPSO in 2006 AD. So the patents on round hull MODUs and FPSOs might face “prior art” of biblical proportions! Read the story told in a conference presentation in 2015.
- “2016 and Two FPSOs in US GoM: The Twenty Year Saga”, presentation at Rice Global E&C Forum, 10 June 2016, 47 slides (draws on www.fpsosingom.com plus additional material).
- Oil & Gas Journal of 1May17 quoted Peter Lovie’s views on FPSOs in US GoM and state of FPSO business.
