According to these regulations, single-hull tankers are restricted from carrying heavy grade oil if the capacity of the tanker is more than 5,000 tons DWT.
The Global FPSO Market is segmented by carrier type as Converted Ship, New Build Ship, and Redeployed. The converted carrier segmented dominates the market owing to low capital requirement and faster deployment. Converted FPSO refers to the modification of an existing transportation vessel, usually a crude oil shuttle tanker. The conversion of a transportation vessel into a FPSO is a common practice used in multiple situations such as costs reduction, shorter lead time or asset management. Moreover, shipyards may be able to perform this conversion while a few will have the capacity to hold the hull of a new-build FPSO in construction. Shorter time, less expenditure, and easy deployment are the prime drivers boosting the growth of the converted segment in the global FPSO market. The global FPSOs market has witnessed moderate growth over the past couple of years owing to increased demand for FPSO.
