Key Market Trends

Drilling Rigs to Dominate the Market

  • After the oil price crisis in 2014, during 2014-16, the rig count, both onshore and offshore, declined significantly. But the period of 2017-2018 was characterized by the recovery in the oil price, resulting in significant recovery in onshore rig count. The offshore activity generally has longer lead times. Also, given the volatility in oil prices, combined with high CAPEX requirements for offshore projects, the offshore drilling activity did not recover until 2019.
  • The offshore operators have committed to significant investments in field developments. As of 2018, Europe was a leader in the offshore drilling market in terms of a number of planned and under-pipeline projects.
  • Amid the reducing reserves in the North Sea, drilling activity is on ever high given the attempts to find more oil and gas in deeper waters. Other countries like the Netherlands, Norway, and the United Kingdom are increasing their drilling activity every year in search of more oil and gas thus acting as a major driver for this market.
  • As the crude oil prices are increasing, investment in the oil and gas industry is expected to grow significantly and bring several projects online, thereby, driving the Europe oilfield equipment rental services market.

Norway to Dominate the Market

  • Norway is expected to maintain its dominance in the region in forecast period, the increased pressure on oil and gas companies to do more in limited money and become more cost-efficient has been driving the market.
  • Norway’s oil and gas industry is now back on its feet. Oil companies have increased their spending for the first time in 2018, since 2014. As of 31 December 2018, there were 85 discoveries where the licensees have yet to submit a PDO to the government. The total investment required to develop the whole portfolio is estimated to be in the order of NOK 400 billion in 2018 value.
  • In 2019, Norway drilled better than ever, around 130 wells, out of which 55 were for exploratory drilling in a bid to find new oil & gas fields to compensate the country’s declining oil & gas production. Drilled wells numbers saw a rise of 16% compared to 2018.
  • The new market conditions forced the industry to cut costs and improve operational efficiency, which, in turn, made several unprofitable projects feasible. This trend is expected to increase the demand for oilfield equipment rental services in the country.
