The Global "Subsea Market" is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).
Subsea is completely submerged offshore ocean equipment, placed on the seabed, to control the flow of crude oil and natural gas from the reservoir to a host processing facility. Companies operating in subsea business provides integrated solutions, products, systems and services for the subsea oil and gas market, including integrated subsea production systems involving wellheads, subsea trees, manifolds, and flowline connectors, control systems, connectors and services designed to maximize reservoir recovery and extend the life of each field.
The subsea market is divided into equipment type and service type. The market's equipment type is divided into wellheads, Subsea trees, Manifolds, Flowline connectors, and the market's equipment type. In contrast, the service type includes asset management, product optimization, inspection, maintenance, repair services, and others.
The Subsea market will be likely to advance in the coming years compared to the last five years. Due to the substantial subsea technology progress in reducing offshore energy costs, Dueelp offshore oil and gas developments are viable at significantly lower breakeven prices. Key project sanctions from oil and gas companies are also in 2019—future pipelined projects with stable crude prices estimations in the near term to drive the demand for subsea equipment.
At present, 70% of all oil is produced onshore. While 30% is produced offshore and only 9% is subsea produced. Moving forward, subsea oil and gas exploration and production will likely experience growth because subsea oilfields have significant deposits of hydrocarbons, it is anticipated. Subseries have yet to be developed.
Investments in oil and gas production are also needed to compensate for the natural depletion of producing wells. Offshore oil accounts for over a quarter of the world’s supply. It is anticipated, depletion of a 16% net decline in offshore supply is expected by 2030. To maintain global supply, new offshore reserves must be developed, and existing reserves maximized with new wells.
Besides, technological advancements and strong oil and gas company financial backups have increased ultra-deep and deep oil exploration. The depletion of onshore oil and gas resources will likely propel the demand for offshore oil and gas exploration assets.
In 2018, there was an increase in subsea equipment such as umbilicals risers and flowlines awards to market. These projects are mostly brownfield developments. These developments have lower investment decision hurdles because the capital commitments are lower, as infrastructure is already in place and production underway.
While, In 2019 and coming years as well to the brownfield developments, greenfield Subsea projects sanctioning in 2019 are expected to surpass compared to the last five years on account of lowering breakeven costs, for instance, Saudi Aramco has awarded 34 contracts worth a combined $18 billion on July 2019 for engineering, procurement, and construction work on the Marjan and Berri fields offshore Saudi Arabia.
The Subsea market is segmented into wellheads, Subsea trees, Manifolds, Flowline conThems, and Others by equipment type. The global subsea trees equipment was worth USD XX million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD XX m by equipment typeillion by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.
Subsea trees can be used with any hull form but are typically used in conjunction with FPSOs, representing about 70-80% of global floating facilities. These systems are suitable to all reservoir geometries and areal sizes and allow increased flexibility in field layouts, such as multiple individual wells and multiple drill centers. They also remove the need to pre-design the number of good slots on the host facility.
Wet tree systems can be used in deeper water, reaching the industry’s current capability of subsea completion technology for operating in water depths up to 9600ft. Mobile offshore drilling units and drillships are used for drilling and completion activities. Wells are tied back through a common production system to the floating facility.
The Asia Pacific Subsea market size was worth USD XX million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD XX million by 2026, at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period.
Subsea oil and gas reserves, exploration and production are found in the North Sea, the U.S Gulf of Mexico, Marjan and Berri field offshore Saudi Arabia majorly.
Saudi Aramco has awarded 34 contracts worth a combined $18 billion in July 2019 for engineering, procurement, and construction work on the Marjan and Berri fields offshore Saudi Arabia.
Shell Offshore Inc has made deep-water announcements in recent months, namely, discovery at the Blacktip prospect in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico. According to Shell Offshore Inc, the company’s global deepwater production is on track to exceed 900,000 boe per day by 2020, from already discovered, established areas.
Whereas on August 2, 2019, Shell took the final investment decision for the PowerNap deepwater project in the US Gulf of Mexico. The project, which will be tied back to the Shell-operated Olympus production hub, is forecast to start production in late 2021 and produce up to 35,000 boe per day at its full capacity.
Although other major oil and gas company BP p.l.c., has started up six major upstream projects in Europe and Eurasia, North Africa and North America. Together with the projects already brought online in 2016, these new projects will make a major contribution to the 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (mboed) of new production, net to BP p.l.c.
By 2021. Therefore, the upstream projects lined up in the oil and gas companies' project pipeline to drive the subsea, across the North Sea, U.S Gulf of Mexico, and Middle East regions.
The Subsea market is competitive with existing players in the market. Some of the major players include Subsea 7 S.A, Aker Solutions, Dril-Quip, Inc, Schlumberger Limited, OneSubsea, Balmoral Offshore Engineering, Delta SubseaLLC, Baker Hughes, and Allseas Group S.A. Existing players in the market are focusing on gaining subsea contracts.
Subsea 7 has been awarded a contract by Saudi Aramco for the Marjan Increment Projects - Package 2, offshore Saudi Arabia. The EPCI contract is awarded for execution in consortium with L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE), a subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro.
Reliance Industries Limited has awarded TechnipFMC significant subsea contracts for the MJ1 fieReliance Industries Limited has awarded TechnipFMC significant subsea contracts over the fabrication and installation of flexible risers, rigid and flexible flowlines and umbilicals.
