Global Drill Pipe Market - Snapshot

The incessantly growing demand for energy coupled with the growing demand for finding new offshore reserves is helping to drive the growth of the global drill pipe market. The dwindling production from the onshore oil fields is driving the demand for new and innovative drilling technologies. The newest advancement in these drilling technologies such as horizontal drilling and pad drilling have enhanced the efficiency of drilling procedures and also cut down the overall downtime of the drilling rig. It has helped in speeding up the overall drilling operations. All these developments are thus expected to be beneficial for the development of the global drill pipe market.

Drill pipes are hollow thick-walled pipes that are used for carrying out horizontal drilling in wellbores. A single drill pipe usually has a hollow tube that is long in height. It has ample thickness of wall along with joint tool connections at both the ends. These piper are generally subject to heavy fatigue and torsional stress during the time of drilling. Hence, they are heat-treated and seamless in nature to cater to the API requirements.

The vendor landscape of the global drill pipe market is a fragmented one due to the presence of several key players. The leading players in the company are opting for mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures to stay ahead of the competitive curve. For instance, in February 2019, Tenaris SA, announced that the company has entered into an agreement to form a joint venture with PAO Severstal. The objective is to build a wielded drill pipe plant for the production of OCTG products in Surgut, West Siberia.

Drill pipes are hollow pipes, usually made of aluminum alloys or steel and are a core component in the drilling process. The hollow drill pipes enable for the transfer of drilling fluids downwards towards the drill point or back upwards through the annulus. Although a standard length for drill pipes is up to 32 feet, there are longer pipes that could stretch till 45 feet and are used in special circumstances.

Most stems in drilling systems need to be created in a way that allows for efficient drilling torque transfer that can be sent downward, over many miles and through the Earth’s crust. In order to do this, the pipes need to be able to withstand the massive pressure exerted by the ground towards the outer walls of the pipe, as well as the pressure exerted by the fluids from within. This involve the use of tempered steel tubes that can be expensive in nature. Due to this, the reusability of drill pipes is a highly regarded quality that could end up hampering the overall demand rates for them.

Global Drill Pipe Market: Overview 

Drill pipes, usually made from aluminum or steel, are hollow and thin-walled and utilized in drilling rigs. Drilling fluid is pushed down the hole and back up the annulus. They are available in the market in different sizes, strengths, and wall thicknesses. Their length is usually between 27 and 32 feet. They can withstand massive internal and external pressure, distortion, bending, and vibration as they can rotate and lift the bottom hole assembly (BHA). The two types of drill pipes are standard drill pipes and heavy weight drill pipe. 

Global Drill Pipe Market: Key Trends 

At the forefront of driving growth in the global drill pipe market is the spiking demand for energy, which has necessitated exploration of offshore reserves on account of tanking production from onshore fields. The progress in drilling technologies such as pad drilling and horizontal drilling have also helped up output and lowered drilling rig downtime, which has expedited drilling operations. This is slated to push up demand even further. 

Countering the growth in the global drill pipe market is the tanking crude oil prices. This has also resulted in a steady decline in rig rental capital in the offshore market. Customers now have strong bargaining power in negotiating new contracts and extensions too on account of the downward pressure on prices.  

Global Drill Pipe Market: Market Potential 

At present there are way too many offshore drilling rigs chasing too little work. Hence, many are being idled or scrapped. Offshore opportunities, however, are abound in Africa and the Middle East that provide an avenue for growth for the market. The onshore oil and gas presents much greater opportunity than the offshore ones because the explosive drilling activities from shale reserves, coal bed methane, and tar sands.  Additionally, the continued spike in global petroleum consumption is also predicted to create major growth opportunities for the market in the near future. 

Going forward, the premium grade drill pipe segment is slated to hold out a lot of potential because of the growth in the exploration activity in deepwater and ultra deepwater regions primarily in Europe and Africa, where recent oil and gas discoveries have occurred in the offshore regions. Premium grade drill pipe is helpful in deepwater exploration on account of it being immune to high pressure and high temperatures. 

Global Drill Pipe Market: Regional Outlook 

From a geographical perspective, North America is a key region on account of the burgeoning shale gas exploration and production in the U.S., which has favored the drill pipe market and will continue doing so in the near future. Canada is another important market in the region. The Middle East and Africa are other crucial markets on account of the presence of a large number of reserves. 

In terms of growth, however, Asia Pacific, powered by China, will outshine all other regions. This will be mainly on account of the flexible and hassle-free regulatory scenario in the countries of China, India, Indonesia, and Singapore.
