Rice Global E&C Forum
Rice Global E&C Forum

Welcome to the Rice Global Engineering & Construction Forum

The Rice Global E & C Forum is the only organization focused solely on the discussion and study of problems and opportunities facing the contracting side of the E & C industry. The Rice Global E&C Forum (RGF) has a vision to be the premier venue for discussion of critical issues impacting the future of the global E & C industry.

The mission of the RGF Council is to accomplish its vision through collaboration with Rice University, by conducting an Annual Forum and holding monthly roundtable meetings within a neutral environment.

Join us for a Discussion – Upcoming Roundtable Meeting

Date: Friday, June 10, 2016

“2016 and Two FPSOs in US GoM: the Twenty Year Saga”

Peter Lovie will talk about key industry people in this saga, the often controversial events behind it, insights that might be gained from it all, and the outlook as the FPSO business faces its worst ever downturn. The contrast between the use of FPSOs in the US Gulf of Mexico and the rest of the world is dramatic: fourfold growth in the world’s FPSO fleet over these 20 years, yet only 2 of about 218 in that fleet are in the US GoM. Peter will include comments on the unrecognized initiatives of operators on the regulatory process, the real reason for FPSOs being disconnectable in GoM and how it’s about time we amend the Jones Act. This piece was published in April on www.fpsosingom.com by Peter Lovie and is freely downloadable.

Speaker: Peter Lovie
