Oil Well Logging Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Well logging refers to the recording of encountered events, depths, and subsurface formations at the time of drilling. Well logs might be done through instruments and gadgets that are taken down into the well or through visual observations. With constant increase in the cost of well digging, particularly offshore wells together with special requirements of digging unconventional reservoirs, oil well logging and formation evaluation is proving to be cost effective. It also improves efficiency in well placement, production, drilling, and completion design thereby driving the global oil well logging market.
Some of the recent trends in oil well logging sector comprise
On the parameters of types of log techniques, the global oil well logging market is split into lithology logs, electrical logs, and porosity logs. Image and resistivity logs are the sub segments of electrical logs.
Electrical logs are considered as a significant tool for a petrophysicist. Electrical logs offer a procedure for the calculation of water saturation, based on which the calculation for stock tank original oil-in-place (STOOIP) is done. However, the principal application of electrical logs is to measure the saturation of reservoirs formations.
The electrical logs come with many uses, which are
Multiple uses of electrical logs encourage growth of the global oil well logging market.
Oil well logging is considered as one of the most vital procedures for each and every oil well that is drilled across the globe. The well logging helps the oil and gas companies in maintaining a log of several geological formations that are observed while the drilling processes. This helps the companies in analyzing the drilling related data and further offers solutions to reduce the chances of maintenance failure while the drilling procedures. With these advantages, the global market for oil well logging is projected to witness a significant growth over the next few years.
The development of the oil and gas industry across the globe and the rising number of drilling activities are anticipated to supplement the growth of the oil well logging market in the next few years. In addition to this, the strict government regulations and rules for the maintenance of well logging is likely to offer lucrative opportunities for the key players operating in the global oil well logging market in the coming years.
The growing focus of the prominent players on technological developments and the emergence of innovative and effective products are anticipated to accelerate the growth of the global market in the near future. Furthermore, the rising level of competition and the rising awareness among the oil and gas companies regarding the benefits of oil well logging are estimated to stimulate the development of the market and offer lucrative opportunities for the leading players operating in the oil well logging market across the globe.
Oil well logging is a primary procedure that helps characterize the subsurface search for hydrocarbons. Currently, well logging has become a routine procedure for every oil well drilled in the world. Logging helps analyze drilling-related data as well as to reduce the chances of maintenance failures while drilling. In the earlier stages of its development, the applications of this process were limited to basic lithologic description and strati-graphic correlation. Today, the global oil well logging market is a crucial part in the analysis of a location in detail such as the characterization of rock facies and depositional reconstruction.
The recent advances in electronics and computer have also helped reduce the costs in the global oil well logging market and facilitated the improvements in the technology. Oil well logging is expected to gain a tremendous demand over the coming years on account of the stabilizing oil extraction industry.
The ever-increasing demand for oil as a fuel in the automotive and other industries is pushing the oil and gas industry to find ways to improve extraction procedures from their oil wells, thereby considerably pushing the global oil well logging market. As the demand for oil and crude-based derivatives increases around the world at staggering speeds, so will the rate of oil extraction, or the functioning of oil wells. This will provide the impetus that players from the global oil well logging market need to evolve their business over a greater number of locations and in a more accurate analytical sense.
The oil well logging process is, however, receiving a somewhat negative perspective from the oil and gas industry, due to its extremely high dependency on the reliability of data generated from any geographical location, a process which is relatively risky and often falls to human errors. This is currently restricting the global oil well logging market. However, the technological advancements in the geographical surveys such as seismic technology and implementation of better and automated technology for well logging brings new opportunities for the global oil well logging market.
The global oil well logging market is segmented on the basis of the types of log techniques, into electrical logs, porosity logs, and lithology logs. Electrical logs are further classified into resistivity and image logs. Resistivity logs are further classified into Latero logs and Induction logs.
On the basis of geography, the global market for oil well logging market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world. In North America, the U.S. and the Canada are the currently high value proponents in the global oil well logging market, providing better opportunities to the existing and new market players in market. In the Asia Pacific region, China, Indonesia, India, and Malaysia are the leading countries currently producing crude oil and thus attracting new investments in the oil well logging market. In Europe, Norway and the U.K. are the key countries producing crude oil. Also, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, being the leading regional producers of crude oil, are where the bulk of all opportunities lie in the global oil well logging market.
The key players in the global oil well logging market so far have included Advanced Reservoir Technologies, Inc., Baker Hughes Incorporated, Canadian Sub-Surface Wireline and Production Services, Inc., Cardinal Surveys Company, CL Consultants Limited, Collier Consulting, Inc., and Crosco Integrated Drilling & Well Services Co. Ltd.
