A New Well Completion Market Report Predicts 4.2% A Year Increase Until 2028

Reportlinker has released a new well completion equipment and services market forecast for the 2021 to 2028 period. In this post, we are going to look at some of the key facts this report puts forward.

Currently, the well completion market is valued somewhere in the region of USD 8.5 billion. The report predicts that the value could rise to around USD 11 billion in 2028. This would mean that the well completion market exhibits a compound annual growth rate of some 4.2% across this timescale. There are several factors that are predicted to contribute to this growth. Including increased levels of oil and gas exploration, and increased natural gas consumption.

What is Well Completion?

This is the entire process of finishing up preparing a well for full production once drilling has finished. In short, it means running production tubulars and other down hole rig equipment, and undertaking any stimulating or perforating that is needed. Fundamentally, this is the final process of making a rig ready for production. Replacing drilling equipment with rig equipment to facilitate actual production. This requires specialised oil well completion equipment.

Other Factors Impacting The Well Completion Market

Consider for a moment, that in 2019, there were over 14,000 rigs that went through the completion process. When we look at the number of new offshore projects currently underway across multiple regions, we can see why this growth in the well completion market is forecasted. However, there are some negative impactors as well. Not least of which is the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to reduced output from oil and gas generating firms. With some staff being forced to stay home, construction and maintenance of these facilities has slowed. The same is true of some oil producers, with rigs short on staff and being forced to reduce production. All of this, of course, has negatively impacted the ability of oil producers to procure additional investment funding.
