Subsea Well Access System Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Subsea well access system are critical equipment employed for carrying out subsea drilling and production operations successfully. The safety and reliability of subsea equipment is critical for the development of subsea oil and gas field.
In the life of a field, interventions and workovers are needed to improve and optimize field recovery. This requires scientific technologies for facing challenges pertaining to augmenting oil recovery from subsea wells. This includes Riserless Light Well Intervention that enables cost-effective intervention operations in existing subsea wells, which results in additional output from mature subsea fields.
The use of subsea well access systems enhances production efficiency and safety measures. Subsea well access systems are available in a number of configurations. For instance, Slimbore subsea well access system provide smaller bore diameter for slender well designs. Slimbore wellhead allows the use of diameter riser systems of reduced size for drilling and production operations. Thus, early generation drilling vessels can drill in deep water and floating production facilities can augment the quantity of production risers held back to the host platform.
Subsea well access systems are primarily of two types, viz. rig based well access system and vessel based well access system. The former is used for subsea tree installation and for well completion and for heavy well intervention activities. Moreover, rig based well access system are also used for providing open water tree on wire installation along with intervention workover control and support services for Well Plug and Abandonment for deep as well as shallow waters. Vessel based well access systems is one of the most cost-effective intervention techniques.
The worldwide subsea well access systems market is growing at a healthy rate while riding on the advantage that the systems provide with regard to the relatively easy and efficient execution of subsea activities. This aids in attaining maximum safety and reliability, which in turn promises maximum output during production. The global subsea well access systems market is gaining a strong foothold at a significantly rapid pace because of the heavy investments by exploration and production companies with a view to minimize capital and operational expenditures.
On account of the competitive characteristic of the oil and gas industry, there has been a bright focus on the improvement of production efficiency. Out of all the primary drivers of the world subsea well access systems market, rising safety concerns and improvised production efficient equipment as a requisite have topped the list. The global subsea well access systems market has a couple of restraints, i.e. lack of technical expertise and high installation and operational costs, which could hamper its growth. Howbeit, the adoption of subsea well access systems has elevated considerably in the event of strict safety regulations and penalties for non-compliance implemented across the industry. The subsea well access systems market growth is expected to be enhanced by the need to maintain and surge recovery rates.
On the basis of technology, the global subsea well access systems market could be classified into rig-based intervention and vessel-based intervention. Rig-based systems which are used for heavy intervention may be segmented into completion workover riser system and landing string system. Vessel-based intervention, also known as riserless light well intervention, is mainly used for medium to light intervention.
The growth rate for rig-based intervention systems is predicted to decline due to their cost and time-consuming attribute. Contrastingly, the adoption of riserless light well intervention is foretold to increase exponentially.
With the continued advancement of the exploration of reserves by oil and gas operators in deep water areas, the international subsea well access systems market is progressing at a rapid pace. Europe and South America, in particular, have expressed their rising requirement for intervention in subsea wells. This has further stimulated the adoption of subsea well access systems. On the back of a massive number of wells existing historically, which require significant overhaul, Europe has been the leader in the global subsea well access systems market. Furthermore, the market in the Europe region is anticipated to spread its wings even more expansively, especially in the U.K. and Norway.
The demand in Asia Pacific and Africa regions is predicted to augment with the boosting amount of deep water discoveries in emerging countries. Likewise, subsea well access systems are likely to find application in the deep water discoveries of South and Central America.
Some of the important players existing in the global subsea well access systems market are Weatherford Solutions, FMC Technologies, UZTEL Ltd., National Oilwell Varco, Proserv, Tenaris, Cameron International, Schlumberger, and Aker Solutions.
