Increased performance and effective optimization of various drilling operations will propel the adoption of digital oilfields solutions across the region. Declining production from traditional methods will create a demand for economic well recovery procedures which in turn will further enhance the business outlook.
The demand for remote monitoring equipment and automated operations is set to enhance substantially with the growing production from deep & ultra-deep subsea locations. Several government regulations pertaining to personnel safety as well as stringent environment norms will boost the adoption of sustainable and economical technologies across wellbores.
Increasing E&P investments coupled with shifting focus of oil producers toward subsea hydrocarbon exploration will propel the growth of various oilfield services. For instance, as per the IEA, the regional E&P expenditure stood around USD 128 billion in 2019, which is 9% higher than that of 2018. Growing technological advancements to enhance well production will stimulate the industry growth over the forecast timeframe. Furthermore, increasing investments towards shale gas production will positively influenced the demand for the advanced drilling and production services.
Growing investments to enhance the oil production from mature oilfields is set to drive the digital oilfield market size significantly. Advanced solutions including development planning reservoir characterization, monitoring control along with actuators, sensory devices, and smart alarms are providing better optimization for reservoir development which in turn will fuel the technology demand.
Growing focus toward development of new wellheads across offshore deep-water locations coupled with the increasing penetration of various subsea E&P projects will boost the industry growth in the forthcoming years. As per the IEA 2018 statistics, the deep-water oil production is expected to register 50% growth by 2030 compared to 2018.
Adoption of wireless networks along with improved operational infrastructure will facilitate personnel safety and efficient operations. The rising safety concerns on an oilfield will escalate the growth of the market. Moreover, growing requirement of advanced data collection and interpretation systems with continuous monitoring will further encourage product adoption.
U.S. digital oilfield market is set to grow on account of its technological superiority as well as soaring R&D investment.
