Increasing Demand from China is Expected to Drive the Market

  • China is the largest market for oilfield services in the region. The country is planning to reduce the dependency on natural gas import and has started to exploit its shale gas reserves to meet domestic demand.
  • Sichuan province, the most important area for shale gas, is expected to produce more than 4.5 billion cubic meters of gas in 2018, increasing the demand for hydraulic fracturing. The country has urged national oil companies and state-owned energy companies to optimize extraction action plan for ensuring increasing domestic natural gas production.
  • The new reforms related to oil and gas industry are expected to make it easier for private companies to invest in the country, which, in turn, is expected to help reduce the monopoly of state-owned companies. Growing investment by the private sector is expected to improve the oil and gas industry, in turn driving the oilfield services market in the country.
