Market Overview

The Latin America Oil & Gas Pipeline Services Market is expected to grow at a CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Transportation and distribution pipeline is an integral part of the oil & gas industry involved in the safe distribution of natural gas, crude oil, and other hydrocarbons from exploration to consumers. 

Pipeline services include the design, construction, and maintenance of oil and gas pipelines established on onshore and offshore facilities. 

The market growth can be majorly attributable to the rising crude oil and natural gas production in countries such as Brazil and Mexico. 

Brazil is transforming the oil & gas pipeline industry to involve private entities in the market, to boost market competition and lower prices. 

The changing regulatory framework towards the o&g pipeline network is likely to attract huge investments, thus growing the market over the forecast period. 

In Brazil, the transportation and storage of oil and gas is regulated by the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP)

Segmentation Analysis

By Application

Crude oil is the largest segment of the oil & gas pipeline services market in Brazil, holding a share of XX% of the total market revenue in 2019

The market for crude oil pipeline services in the Latin America region valued USD XX million in 2019 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million by 2027

The rapidly growing crude oil production activities and demand for transportation and distribution networks propel market growth. Safe and environment-sound transportation of crude oil evolved as an integral part of the energy sector, and effective pipeline services play a critical role.

Countries like Brazil, Venezuela, and Mexico lead in oil production and pipeline networks in the region.

By Country

Brazil is the largest and most lucrative market for the oil and gas pipeline services market in the Latin American region. The large-scale oil production activities and rapidly growing demand for oil and gas in domestic and industrial applications drive the country's O&G pipeline services market's growth.

The country evolved as the largest producer of crude oil in the region with nearly 3.2 million barrels per day, accounting for over 35% of the regional production share.

With rising crude oil prices coupled with surging demand and uncertain production activities in Venezuela, the demand for Brazil’s crude oil is posing significant growth prospects in the region. Petrobras, the state-owned market leader, is focusing on expanding its production capacity by nearly 20%, reaching 2.7 million b/d by 2025

This growth in the production and distribution of crude oil poses a high growth potential for transportation pipeline services. Also, the demand for shale gas in the country is rapidly growing for industrial and domestic applications, eventually driving pipelines.

State-owned business entities have largely controlled the oil & gas industry in Brazil. The Oil & Gas pipeline services market is also consolidated with a limited number of players operating in the market. A large section of the transportation pipeline network of crude oil and gas belongs to three companies (NTS, TAG, and TBG) incorporated by Petrobras.

However, Petrobras's monopoly in exploration, refining, and distribution led to considerable negative implications on the industry. Higher gas prices to consumers, lower market competition, difficulties in industry expansion, low attractiveness for foreign investments, and several other implications are forcing the government towards fragmentation of the oil & gas industry in the country. 

Petrobras focuses on transportation capacity, particularly private firms, to increase market competition and lower domestic gas prices.  

 ➢In April 2019, the company sold its 90% stake in the TAG pipeline to a consortium led by privately held Engine SA (France) for USD 8.6 billion.

➢ In September 2016, Petrobras signed to transfer 90% of its stake in Nova Transportadora do Sudeste (NTS) to Brookfield Asset Management for USD 5 billion.

➢ The company has also agrred to sell its entire stake in Associada de Gas (TAG), Bolivian interconnector Transportadora Gasoduto Bolívia-Brasil (TBG), Nova Transportadora do Sudeste (NTS) and gas subsidiary Gaspetro by December 2021

The government and ministry of energy in the country are forwarding towards opening energy sectors, including pipelines, to private competitors and are proposing legislation. This change in legislation is likely to provide new growth avenues for the oil & gas pipeline services market in the country.
