Offshore Construction Financing

Overseas offers a full range of  offshore financing models for project services from development through engineering and construction to capital projects for operating facilities focused on six market sectors. Our teams partner with customers and local communities to deliver great projects to the world.

Investors looking to finance assets such as drillships, traditional rigs, spars, floating production semi-submersibles, or other offshore exploration and production installations destined for operations face a starkly different environment today than even just a few months ago. In particular, the risk/reward profile of these assets presents a unique suite of considerations for both owners and potential financiers.

Offshore exploration and production is typically more expensive and riskier than onshore projects, especially given the shift towards deep and ultra-deepwater exploration, which influences the financing terms available to investors. In 2013 and the beginning of 2014, we saw energy companies committing more and more resources to E&P projects as oil and natural gas prices were experiencing sustained highs, spurring increased orders for offshore installations to sustain the forecasted boom.
