Oilfield chemicals are certain chemical compounds used to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of operations associated in an oilfield site. These chemicals find their application under drilling, production, completion, and several other operations under these conditions. These chemicals are used in the purification of equipment, machines, oil itself and the oil sites.
Oilfield chemicals Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Surging Oil Production and Exploration
Oilfield chemicals are in high demand as oil production and exploration operations increase. Oilfield chemicals demand is predicted to rise further as shale oil and gas drilling and production expands and deep-water and ultra-deep-water drilling projects expand. Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) is estimated to invest US$ 2.73 billion in drilling oil and gas wells in 2019, according to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF). Foreign investors are projected to have opportunities to engage in petroleum and natural gas projects worth US$ 300 billion in India by 2022, as the country seeks to reduce its dependency on oil imports by 10%. As a result, the demand for oilfield chemicals is likely to rise as oil and gas exploration projects increase over the forecast period.
- Growth in Water Treatment Projects
Chemicals from the oilfield are used in the water treatment process. The current water supply must meet rising needs as the population grows. As a result, the chemical industry employs novel water treatment techniques to make water suitable for end-use applications such as industrial, cooking, irrigation, and drinking. According to the article 'Treated wastewater use in Saudi Arabia: challenges and initiatives,' Saudi Arabia has set a goal of using treated wastewater 100% of the time by 2025, with roughly 6.8 million m3 per day of treated wastewater expected to be available by 2035. As a result, an increase in the number of water treatment projects is predicted to raise demand for oilfield chemicals during the forecast period.
The rising global population and the increasing investments by the governments of several countries to improve the overall oil and gas infrastructure will also further propel the growth rate of oilfield chemicals market. Additionally, the research and development (R & R&D) activities conducted by numerous key players are projected to bolster the market's growth.
- Growing Strategies and Eco-Friendly Chemicals
Furthermore, key players in the market are focused on adopting strategies such as technological development and collaborations, extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the emergence of eco-friendly oilfield chemicals will further expand the future growth of the oilfield chemicals market.
- Environmental Concerns
In order to process oil, gas, and water gathered from reservoirs, a number of chemicals are used. This treated water contains a number of chemicals that, when released, can harm vegetation and fauna. These environmental concerns are projected to restrain the worldwide oilfield chemicals market during the forecast period. This factor is projected to impede the expansion of the oilfield chemicals industry.
- Fluctuation in Crude Oil Prices
Crude oil is used as a raw material within the market. Therefore, the fluctuations in the prices of crude oil's raw material will prove to be a demerit for the oilfield chemicals market. As a result, this will challenge the oilfield chemicals market growth rate.
