For the selection of a field production system in order to decide among several alternatives, in general, an oil company bases itself mainly on economical analysis aspects, such as net present value and internal rate of return. However, the evaluation of a field development project, generally speaking, needs a methodology for the selection of the best alternative that complies proportionally with all the objectives of the company. Which means that several other aspects besides the financial one should be taken into account in the selection decision process. The main purposes of the present work is to present the methodology for decision-making that supports selection of the best floating production system, for a given offshore oilfield. As an example, a typical field development project is evaluated based on this method. The present paper shows the importance to include technological, safety and environmental risk besides the usual financial one, used for selecting the best alternative of a floating production system in offshore field development.
