The World LNG Market Forecast
2016 - 2020

Dec 22, 2015   + + +  Capital expenditure (Capex) on LNG facilities has risen substantially in recent years, mostly due to growth in the global economy which has been driving demand for natural gas. Douglas-Westwood (DW) forecasts that this trend is set to continue with total expenditure on global LNG facilities expected to reach $241bn between 2016 and 2020 ... read more

Steady FPSO capex foreseen for near term

June 10, 2015 + + + Visiongain calculates the global capex on newbuild and converted FPSOs will be $8.65 billion this year. The South American and West African regions will see the highest investments due to recent ultra-deepwater presalt discoveries. Other regions such as Southeast Asia have potential as more countries strive to balance diminishing onshore output with the development of new offshore reservoirs. This level of capex is predicted based on the low rate of onshore discoveries and technological advances enabling deepwater and ultra-deepwater exploration and production. Going forward, however, Visiongain expects the drop in oil prices and the completion of current FPSO application work will change market dynamics and reduce growth starting in two years. Even so, the market will attract “significant spending” for the next 10 years so long as oil prices remain high enough to warrant investments.

Subsea capex of $145 billion predicted for 2015-2019

June 8, 2015 + + + Douglas-Westwood forecasts global subsea hardware capex will total $145 billion between 2015 and 2019. This would be 27% above the preceding five-year period. The 350 subsea tree installations in 2014 represent the highest volume of installed units on record, a trend expected to continue until 2018 when lower orders due to the current commercial environment will drive a decline in trees installed ... Subsea production equipment, SURF, and pipelines each attract approximately one-third of all expenditures by component, with higher capacity and capability equipment a theme throughout the sector. The development of remote fields, the addition of new project phases and the tieback of satellite fields into subsea hubs continue to support SURF expenditure over the forecast period ... more

Platform maintenance spending set to increase, report claims


April 20, 2015 + + + Demand for offshore modifications, maintenance, and operations (MMO) services totaled $95 billion last year for the world’s 8,061 offshore platforms, according to analyst Douglas-Westwood. DW expects spending in this sector to increase by 5.4% during 2015-2019, driven largely by ageing infrastructure requiring maintenance and modification to sustain production levels ... more

The value of annual installations is projected to grow from nearly $12bn in 2015 to $21bn in 2017 before declining to $17bn in 2019. Projects already ordered will account for much of this spend ...

INFIELD SYSTEMS review North Sea Well Intervention Market


2015-Feb-04 + + + Well intervention projects remain a top fiscal and operational priority for operators in the North Sea. To borrow a well-used phrase, “the days of easy oil are over.” Well intervention has become a critical feature of the future profitability of brownfield assets as operators seek to extend economic production for as long as possible. Operators are developing programmes to ensure that mature wells retain economic recovery rates and maintenance work is executed to ensure integrity. This activity is driving growth and the global intervention and workover market is set to increase from an estimated value of $9.97bn to $17.48bn in 2018 ... see also OWI Conference
