The subsea production and processing systems market is growing due to high-investment and in producing regions such as Africa, Latin America and Middle East. Offshore operations on a large scale in regions such as Golden Triangle and Arctic consisting of offshore Brazil, Gulf of Mexico and offshore West Africa are acting as the opportunities for the subsea production and processing systems market. It is expected that the brutal energy crisis in the emerging countries of Asia Pacific such as China and India are expected to boost the subsea production and processing market in the coming years.
Exploration and manufacturing companies are investing greatly in offshore development projects. Most of the projects are beyond 190-250 meters water depths and to lift hydrocarbons to the surface, they use the subsea production and processing systems. Investment in subsea production and processing systems is expected to grow in the coming years because most of the oil and gas supply is from deep water levels.
As oil & gas operators discovered reserves in deeper water regions where subsea development is extremely necessary to make the recovery economically feasible, offshore oil & gas market had grown at a significant rate. Consequently, the subsea production and processing systems is expected to be an important part for the future of offshore oil & gas market to maintain and improve production. Subsea production systems, typical wells located in deep water or on the sea floor is used to extract petroleum at the seabed and attach it back to an onshore facility.
Subsea processing system revolutionizes offshore oil and gas production by using subsea pumping and separation technologies. When subsea processing systems are combined with subsea production systems, it can enhance reservoir productivity, reduce development cost and improve reliability of subsea systems. The development cost of the subsea production and processing system are much less than that of traditional methods.
On the basis of production system component type, the subsea production and processing system can be categorized as subsea trees, subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF), subsea manifolds, and control modules.The subsea production and processing system market can be categorized on the basis of processing system technology as subsea separation, subsea injection, subsea boosting, and subsea compression.
Oil and gas production, subsea infrastructure market growth, and continuous rise in global deep water drilling activities are some of the factors driving growth of the subsea production and processing system market. Maturity of onshore oil and gas fields and increasing need to satisfy the increasing energy demand is expected to improve the growth of the subsea production and processing system market.
Some of the factors restraining growth of the subsea production and processing system market are lack of technical expertise, and high installation and operational risks.
Existing and proposed projects in the subsea production and processing systems market has grown in the last few years. As a result of the timing of the contracts, several projects have gone ahead regardless of the pressures on the supply chain, global economic downturn, and oil price volatility. Operators involved in the technology are major oil operators such as Total and Shell, and partly nationalized companies such as Statoil and Petrobras.
Some of the major competitors in the subsea production and processing market are Transocean Ltd., General Electric Co., Oceaneering International Inc., Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies As, National Oilwell Varco, Magnum Subsea Systems Pte Ltd., Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc., and Dril-Quip Inc among others.
