Flanges Market Drivers and Opportunities

Rise in Investment in Oil and Gas Pipeline Infrastructure Development

There is an increase in the development of new oil and gas rigs and the discovery of new offshore oil field areas across the world. Moreover, investments in oil and gas pipeline infrastructure development and refurbishment or reconstruction of existing oil and gas rigs have increased. For instance, in October 2022, the Italian government announced plans to increase its gas production from the current production capacity. This plan also includes the building and construction of new offshore gas rigs across the country. In May 2023, the Chinese government announced that it had completed the building and construction of a new 12,000-ton offshore drilling rig. In addition, in 2022, National Grid Gas Plc (UK) announced the acquisition of new land and rights required for the development and operation of a new 9 km gas pipeline between Wormington and Honeybourne. A new 2 km section of gas pipeline network in Churchover is anticipated to facilitate pressure uprating of the already existing gas pipeline between Felindre and Cilfrew and Three Cocks. Therefore, the rising investment in the development of oil and gas pipeline infrastructure worldwide is driving the demand for flanges in this pipeline network expansion.
