Future Market Insights delivers key insights on the APAC upstream oil and gas services market in a new publication titled “Upstream Oil and Gas Services Market: Asia Pacific Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2021”. The APAC upstream oil and gas services market is estimated to be valued at US$ 52.6 Bn by 2016 end, and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period (2016-2021).

Upstream oil and gas services are the services provided for exploration and production of oil and gas on offshore and onshore fields in order to increase production efficiency and production lifespans of projects. Upstream process involves various stages such as the search for underwater and underground oil and gas fields, drilling of wells and subsequently operating them. Upstream services segment comprises services involved in upstream process such as maintenance and operation for drilling equipment, sampling of fluids and decommissioning involved in various stages within upstream processes.

Due to a high urbanisation rate and rapid industrialisation coupled with a growing population and increasing ownership of automobiles, there is a huge demand for crude oil and hydrocarbons in the APAC region. In addition, recovery in crude oil prices is highly anticipated and the market growth is expected to return to pre-2014 levels in the coming years.

In order to meet the Increasing demand for energy and petrochemicals in Asia Pacific, it has become evident to increase productivity from mature and new oil and gas reserves. Exploration of unconventional oil and gas resources is increasing and deep-water exploration activities is also gaining traction. Various small scale and large scale technological advancements, for increasing productivity and decreasing overall production cost, are playing a crucial role and the market growth for upstream oil & gas services in Asia Pacific is expected to pace up over the coming years.

However, volatility in oil and gas prices, environmental and technological concerns related to exploration and production activities in harsh, remote and hostile locations, accompanied by operational challenges in deep and ultra-deep waters, are expected to remain key challenges in the regional upstream oil and gas services market growth through 2021.

Segmentation highlights

On the basis of service type, the market is segmented into inspection, repair & maintenance, sampling, decommissioning, remotely operated vehicle (ROV) drills support, subsea umbilical, risers, and flowlines (SURF) support, well stimulation, well logging, Seismic and geophysical services, and others.

Surf support, ROV drill support, and seismic & geographical services segments are estimated to account for more than one-fourth share in the China upstream oil & gas services market by 2016 end

Surf support, well stimulation, and well logging segments are estimated to represent more than half of the shares in the total incremental opportunity created in the India upstream oil & gas services market between 2016 and 2021
