Publication Month: Oct 2021 | Report Code: TIPRE00002998 | No. of Pages: 149 | Category: Manufacturing and Construction | Status: Published

The managed pressure drilling market is expected to grow from US$ 4,298.97 million in 2021 to US$ 6,004.50 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during 2021–2028.

Managed pressure drilling process involves controlling the annular pressure levels throughout the wellbore. The process helps save cost, time, and money, and brings greater safety into drilling operations. This process enables drilling the challenging, complex extended-reach deep-gas deep water wells. Onshore and offshore drilling activities are increasing continuously across the world, which is one of the major factors driving the managed pressure drilling market. The onshore drilling activities are expected to increase from 46,000 wells drilled in 2020 to ~51,700 wells in 2021, recording a 12% rise. Further, the offshore drilling activities are expected to surge at a 10% year-on-year rate in 2021 and 2022. As a result, the number of offshore wells drilled is expected to reach ~2,500 in 2021, compared to less than 2,300 in 2020. In January 2020, Total SA announced that it is preparing to drill a new offshore well at a record water depth of 3,628 m off the coast of Angola, surpassing its Raya-1 well drilled at 3,400 m water depth in Uruguay. Thus, with the increase in such activities, the demand for pressure drilling equipment and services is increasing.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Managed Pressure Drilling Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken several industries across the world. The tremendous growth in the spread of the virus has urged governments worldwide to impose strict restrictions on vehicles and human movement. Due to travel bans, mass lockdowns, and business shutdowns, the pandemic has adversely affected economies and countless industries in various countries. The lockdown imposition has also reduced the production of commodities, goods, and services.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively influenced the oil industry owing to the considerable disruptions in the supply chain activities in the industry coupled with the restrictions on international trade by several countries in the wake of the pandemic. Furthermore, the global oil prices plummeted significantly owing to the limited demand and continuous production by the oil producing countries added to the considerable decline in production activities among the major oil producing countries. Consequently, the discontinuation of oil extraction activities virtually disrupted the demand for managed pressure drilling market. As a result, during the early months of 2020, several countries witnessed a reduction in the demand for managed pressure drilling due to the implementation of lockdown in several countries because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which hindered the  global managed pressure drilling market growth.

In 2021, with the uplifting of lockdown and vaccination processes, the manufacturing and construction companies have started working again. Therefore, oil production and the demand for managed pressure drilling equipment and machinery are growing, which would propel the growth of the global managed pressure drilling market in the coming years.

Significant Investments in Oil and Gas Projects

Several significant investments have been observed in oil and gas projects across the world, and the resultant availability of funds for procuring modern technologies is boosting the demand for managed pressure drilling. A few of these investments are mentioned below:

  • According to the Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum (ANP—Agência Nacional do Petróleo), the oil & gas sector in the country is expected to receive an investment of US$ 13.00 billion in the exploration and production (E&P) activities in 2021. Of the total, ~US$ 4.00 billion (reais ~16 billion) will be available for the drilling sector.
  • According to the Oxford Energy data in December 2019, the Brazilian Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels Institute (IBP), an industry association representing oil and natural gas producers, US$ 135 billion would be invested in exploration, drilling, and production till 2030, with a peak of ~US$ 19 billion in 2024–25.
  • According to NES Fircroft data in January 2020, the Alaska LNG liquefaction plant project has been in the pipeline for several years, with several invested parties operating as a consortium under the name Alaska LNG. This includes ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips Alaska, and Alaska Gasline Development Corporation with35%, 20%, and 25% shares, respectively. Further, BP plc held a 20% share but, in August 2019, it agreed to sell all their Alaskan interests to Hilcorp Alaska for US$ 5.6 billion.

Thus, with significant investments in oil and gas projects, the drilling operations are likely to increase in the coming years, thereby fueling the demand for managed pressure drilling equipment and services.
