Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Oil and Gas Storage Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global oil and gas storage market: Amec Foster Wheeler, Magellan Midstream Partners, Royal Vopak, TechnipFMC, Vitol, and WorleyParsons.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Blueknight Energy Partners, Buckeye Partners, Centrica, Chiyoda, CIM-CCMP, CLH, DaLian Port (PDA) Company, HORIZON TERMINALS, Kinder Morgan, NuStar Energy, Odfjell, Oiltanking, and Ramboll.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is solidified natural gas technology for natural gas storage. Natural gas is most commonly stored in underground facilities under pressure. These facilities are depleted aquifers, salt caverns and oil or gas fields or both. In above ground facilities, natural gas is stored in gas or liquid form.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is decline in crude oil prices. Petroleum fuel is the most traded commodity in the world. Private trading companies have a presence in various international and local energy trading hubs and exchanges. They bring the buyer and supplier of crude oil and natural gas together and effect a sale. The market for crude oil is unstable, and its pricing is hard to predict due to its complex value chain and supply chain.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is threat of theft and technical challenges related to storage systems. Crude oil and natural gas are stored in large tanks in tank farms. Crude oil and petroleum products are usually stored in circular floating roof tanks whereas natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) are stored in spherical tanks. LNG is stable under atmospheric pressure and hence, can be stored in circular or spherical tanks.
