The international offshore support vessel sector has enjoyed large-scale growth in recent years. In addition, day rates have risen to some of their highest ever levels. Future prospects for the offshore support vessel sector look to be positive in the near-term, although current newbuilding orders may place a downward pressure on day rates in the near future. However, continued exploration and development of new and regenerated offshore oil and gas discoveries are forecast to maintain interest in the offshore support sector well into the future. This detailed Report examines the current/recent supply and demand conditions in each of the main offshore support vessel markets, covering:
Platform Supply Vessels
Offshore Supply Vessels
Diving Support Vessels
This Report examines the outlook for the offshore support vessel sector throughout the period to 2020, through in-depth analysis of recent/current developments and extensive future forecasts.
Included in the Report are detailed analyses and forecasts in the areas of:
This major new Report provides invaluable independent analysis on the future development prospects for the offshore support vessel sector. It represents the most up-to-date and comprehensive examination available of the offshore sector, and is essential reading for all parties with an interest in this sector.
