Global Oil & Gas Water Management Services Market - Segmented by Location, Service, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

Water management is an integral part of the upstream and downstream oil & gas industry. The water quality, treatment technologies and its reuse, and recycle applications widely vary according to the type of water resources. Due to stringent government regulation and the necessity of minimizing the environmental impact of wastewater disposal, the water management services are mandatory for oil and gas exploration & production activity, as well as oil and gas processing activity in the downstream industry.

Growing Upstream Oil & Gas Activity – Drives the Market

Owing to the oil price crisis as of 2014-16, the expenditure in the upstream oil & gas industry dropped by about 60%. However, oil prices stabilized during 2016-17, as a result of which the oil & gas production activity experienced a substantial growth. The capital expenditure in the upstream oil & gas industry was estimated to register a significant growth rate of 25% during 2016-17. The growing upstream oil & gas activity is expected to drive the global water management services market. Factors such as technological advancements, stringent government regulations, and growing hydraulic fracturing activity, is also expected to drive the global water management services market in the oil & gas industry. The high cost associated with water management services and lower for the longer oil price scenario are expected to restrain the market growth.

North America to Lead the Market During the Forecast Period

Over 80% of the global hydraulic fracturing activity takes place in this region. The hydraulic fracturing process involves a large amount of water injection and, hence, water management services are essential in this process to minimize the environmental impact. Owing to a large share of oil & gas production and hydraulic fracturing activity, North America is a market leader in the global oil & gas water management services market. This region is expected to experience a significant growth rate during the forecast period, owing to a positive outlook in the United States and Canada. The United States is expected to experience a substantial growth in oil and gas activity, owing to increasing level of production from Permian basin of Texas and the Gulf of Mexico. Canada, with stability in oil prices, is expected to experience increase in investments in the oil & gas industry, allowing private players to explore some of its most prominent oil sand reserves.

Growing Investments in Upstream and Downstream Sector in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi government has planned to invest on up scaling the production of hydrocarbons and maintain the dominance in the global oil & gas business. Moreover, this country has invested, heavily, in the downstream infrastructure. Therefore, the water management services market in upstream and midstream industry in the country is expected to register a substantial growth rate, during the forecast period.

Notable Developments in the Market

January 2018: The US Interior Department announced that it will allow drilling in nearly all US continental waters. This is the single largest expansion of offshore oil & gas leasing by the federal government in the history of the United States.
