  1. The Shale Gas Market 2012-2022: Transforming the Dynamics of Natural Gas

    The Shale Gas Market 2012-2022: Transforming the Dynamics of Natural Gas

    The shale gas industry has seen significant growth in the North American market changing the dynamics of natural gas trading in the region. The combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to extract gas from low permeability rock sources has presented a major new energy source, which has significantly reduced the need for natural gas imports to the US. Nations across the world are now looking at the possibility of tapping into this resource to supplement domestic gas consumption or even for export.

  2. The Oil & Gas Exploration & Production (E&P) Market 2011-2021

    The Oil & Gas Exploration & Production (E&P) Market 2011-2021

    Soaring oil prices and a perpetually increasing global demand for energy are creating a ripe environment for the oil & gas exploration & production E&P industry to increase its spending. Historically the E&P market has experienced relative underinvestment, but as growing global energy demand puts pressure on supply capacity, new capital will be needed to find more oil & gas, and to boost production. With the oil price once again at a high price, oil company revenues are increasing and the rewards of investing in E&P are lucrative. Through our thorough research and analysis of company expenditure, major projects and expert insight into the market, visiongain has calculated the oil & gas exploration & production market to be worth $434.3bn in 2010.

  4. The Gas Processing Infrastructure Market 2011-2021

    The Gas Processing Infrastructure Market 2011-2021

    According to the World Energy Council (WEC), global demand for natural gas is likely to increase by 44% between 2007 and 2035 as a combination of an increasing global population, economic growth, significant natural gas reserves and a desire to produce cleaner energy, help to drive growth in the natural gas industry. This will create substantial opportunities for companies involved in the gas processing infrastructure market, as new facilities will need to be constructed and existing facilities upgraded to process increasing quantities of gas. Visiongain calculates the global gas processing infrastructure market will reach $12.15bn in 2011.

  5. The Oil & Gas Drilling Technologies Market 2011-2021

    The Oil & Gas Drilling Technologies Market 2011-2021

    Although oil & gas drilling has been taking place for over 100 years, the technological advances in recent years along with increasing extraction of unconventional oil & gas resources has revived interest and investment in the drilling industry over the past few years. The technologies are more and more integrated to enable faster and more accurate drilling in deepwater and ultra-deepwater and help secure oil & gas wells in the most demanding and challenging environments around the globe. Visiongain calculates the global oil & gas drilling technologies market defined as, spending on new drilling equipment, infrastructure and upgrading of existing facilities to be worth $70.1bn in 2011.

  6. The Oil Shale Market 2011-2021

    The Oil Shale Market 2011-2021

    Oil shale is not a newly discovered energy source; it has been utilised around the world in various places and at various times for more than 150 years. But the high costs of oil shale extraction, together with the ready availability of conventional oil reserves, made the process uneconomic for most of the 20th century. However, a combination of high oil prices, improved extraction technologies, and increasing energy demands have reignited interest in the oil shale industry over the past few years, and a number of countries are currently seeking to establish major domestic oil shale markets. Visiongain calculates the global oil shale market, defined as, spending on new infrastructure and upgrading of existing oil shale facilities plus spending on R&D, to be worth $2.88bn in 2011.

  7. The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Market 2012-2022

    The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Market 2012-2022

    The world has vast quantities of natural gas reserves, but most of them are located far from where the gas is most needed. In natural gas liquefaction plants, gas is cooled and its volume is reduced by a factor of 600 at a temperature of -162°C. This enables LNG carrier ships to transport economic volumes of LNG across oceans to regasification terminals. At the receiving or import terminals the LNG cargo is either turned from liquid to gas and fed through gas pipelines to the gas grid, or is stored as LNG in super cooled tanks. This chain of operations allows for facilitated international trade of natural gas, the fastest growing fossil fuel.

  8. The Oil Sands Market 2011-2021

    The Oil Sands Market 2011-2021

    Global demand for energy is rising at a rapid pace as population growth and economic prosperity is enabling consumers in developing and emerging markets to shift their lifestyle towards increasingly energy consuming products. Risks of oil supply disruptions from Middle Eastern and North African countries are apparent; hence the price of crude oil and petroleum products are expected to remain high over the next few years, making alternative sources such as oil sands economically viable. Therefore most advanced nations capable of investing in alternative supplies are making considerable investments. As a result visiongain calculates capital expenditure in the oil sands market will reach $24.9bn in 2011.
