Key Market Trends

E-Line to Dominate the Market

  • In 2018, the market share of e-line wireline logging services was high, globally.
  • Electrical line (E-line) is a cable which is utilized to lower the tools and transmit data to the surface and to the tools deployed. An e-line can perform the slickline job and can also help to evaluate (log) the formation, when the data must be sent to the surface.
  • E-lines consists of single strands or multi-strands. E-Line is a more value-added deployment method, as it covers both requirements, i.e. it can intervene on a mechanical level and collect data about well conditions too.
  • The market for E-Line wire-line services, have been growing, owing to there being a higher number of old wells (conventional) across the globe that require intervention and monitoring. In addition, a number of down-hole tools that were previously deployed by coiled tubing can now be deployed using E-Line, which is more cost-effective.
  • Owing to the above mentioned properties, the demand for e-line wireline logging services has been growing over the forecast period.

North America to Dominate the Market

  • North America is expected to dominate the wireline logging services market and to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period.
  • The United States (US), as of 2019, is the largest producer of oil and gas. In the US, there are more than 900,000 active oil and gas wells, and more than 130,000 have been drilled since 2010.
  • In 2018, the US has witnessed three significant oil discoveries, including two in the Gulf of Mexico, at Ballymore (545 Mb) at a depth of 2,000 m underwater, and at Appomattox (140 Mb) under 2,300 m of water.
  • According to Canadian government report published in 2018, oil production from Canada is anticipated to reach 4.5 mmbpd by 2020, and production is expected to increase from an offshore well situated in the West Orphan Basin, offshore Newfoundland, and Labrador, which is estimated to hold 25.5 bbl of oil and 20.6 tcf of gas.
  • The annual oil output of Mexico has been dropping, over the years, as the giant Cantrell field in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico drying up. However, the Mexican government is trying to increase private investments in its controlled areas of the Gulf of Mexico.
  • ¬†Therefore, increasing oil and gas drilling and completion activities in the region are expected to increase the demand for wireline logging services market over the forecast period in North America region.
