Report Scope

This report is divided into 10 chapters. Chapter 1 identifies the study’s goals and objectives, reasons for doing this study, information sources, methodology and the analyst’s credentials. 

Chapter 2 provides a summary of the report, including a summary table and summary figure. 

Chapter 3 presents the market and technology background, describing the importance of advanced oil and gas exploration and downhole technologies in relation to the more traditional practices, including a brief history and important indications for the industry. 

Chapter 4 presents the market for advanced oil and gas exploration and downhole technology by type, including seismic, geophysical, drilling, completion, artificial lift, revitalization/rejuvenation of old, abandoned fields, and abandonment/decommissioning and waste management. 

Chapter 5 details the demand by end user by oil type, gas company and region. 

Chapter 6 presents the demand by application in finding (i.e., discovery and imaging), reaching the reserves, recovery of the reserves, and abandonment/decommissioning and waste management. 

Chapter 7 presents the demand by region, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World. An in-depth quantification of advanced exploration and downhole expenditures by region includes forecasts to 2021. 

Chapter 8 presets the patent overview and new technological development impacting the industry. This section is particularly important to this discussion of the oil market, as no nation can enjoy long-term energy security without innovation, and international stability cannot be secured without establishing mutually beneficial economic cooperation rooted in technology development. 

Chapter 9 presents an analysis of the market opportunities, along with the industry structure, concentration factors, market leaders and their performance. It also presents important strategies for staying competitive and important shifts in the industry. Trade practices, concentration factors, company earnings and changes are assessed. Other aspects covered in this section include pricing economics and purchasing influences. 

Chapter 10 provides the company profiles, including contact addresses, websites, and telephone and e-mail contact information of selected companies involved in advanced oil and gas exploration and downhole technology.

Report Highlights

  • Global spending on advanced exploration and new downhole techniques will reach $223.183 billion/year in 2012 or 6.4% of the total global oil and gas market in 2012.
  • The increase in spending falls short of the $450 billion in investments that are needed annually on advanced exploration and new downhole techniques over the next quarter century to prevent shortages of oil or natural gas.
  • The use of advanced exploration and new downhole technologies will contribute significantly in reducing the dependence on the volatile Middle East because the technologies increase the supplies of liquids that are not under the control of OPEC.
