Offshore Drilling Rigs Market (Type - Jack up, Semi-Submersible, Drill Ships; Application - Shallow Water, Deep Water, Ultra Deep Water) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2022

Global Offshore Drilling Rigs Market: Snapshot

Energy hungry countries compelled to rely on non-conventional sources is benefitting the global offshore drilling rigs market. Energy production, today, still largely relies on burning of fossil fuels that are mainly buried deep in the Earth’s crust, in rock formations, and deep in oceans. Almost one-third of the oil and gas produced across the world is sourced from offshore reserves. From the first oil rigs built in the late 1800s that could tap oil and gas reserves in shallow waters close to the coastline, the oil rigs that are used today are suitable for waters that are more than 7,500 feet deep and can be as much as 200 miles away from the nearest shore.

Offshore oil production which was complicated at one time is increasingly becoming routine. At present, there are almost 900 large-scale oil and gas platforms that are used for the exploration of deep-water reserves.

As per the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2015, more than 27 million barrels of oil was produced offshore across 50 countries. The world’s largest offshore oil producing countries are Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Mexico, Norway, and the United States.

Apart from serving energy needs, offshore drilling has the prime advantage of reducing incidents of natural oil seepage in oceans. The benefits of offshore drilling are much more than the risks associated with offshore drilling pursuits.

Serving to prove to be a roadblock to the growth of the global offshore drilling market are concerns of environmental impact of offshore drilling and threat to marine life.

According to a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the global offshore drilling rigs market is likely to expand at a CAGR of 3.5% for the forecast period between 2017 and 2022. At this pace, the market will attain a valuation of US$41,922.8 mn by the end of 2022 from its evaluated worth of US$35,336.2 mn in 2017.

Global Offshore Drilling Rigs Market: Trends and Opportunities

The incessantly increasing demand for energy that have led to efforts to tap into non-conventional resources is positively impacting the global offshore drilling rigs market. Offshore drilling rigs have evolved manifold from wharf-based rigs that were used in late 1800s. Today, offshore drilling rigs can tap into petroleum reserves in waters that are more than 7,500 feet deep, and are as much as 200 miles away from the nearest shore. These rigs are equipped with advanced technology and are supported on poles that can be as long as 10,000 feet. With unparalleled development in oil exploration technologies, rigs incorporated with useful elements from different models have been developed for specific needs.

Offshore oil production which was complicated at one time has now become routine. Currently, there are around 900 large-scale oil and gas platforms that are being used to tap deep-water reserves. With drilling and extraction technology becoming increasingly sophisticated, oil and gas at even greater depths can be tapped.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2015, more than 27 million barrels of oil was produced offshore across more than 50 countries. Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Mexico, Norway, and the United States are the top countries for offshore crude oil production. Almost one-third of oil and gas explored comes from offshore resources. This is likely to increase to increase in the coming years, as there exist abundant oil and gas reserves in deep seas. However, the nearing exhaustion of shallow water oil and gas fields is leading companies to tap into reserves at greater depths.
