Oil Sands Market 2014-2024

LONDON, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

CAPEX, OPEX, Production Forecasts; Opportunities for In Situ, Mining and Upgrading Companies  

Though oil sands projects are at the higher end of the cost spectrum of the oil & gas industry, the market fundamentals are currently strong enough to encourage significant levels of investment. The oil sands market will initially see high levels of capital expenditure as a wave of project currently under construction and approved are completed, while operational costs will rise alongside production increases throughout the next ten years. Visiongain values the oil sands market at $38.2bn in 2014.

The oil sands market is divided into two main submarkets in the report: the in situ submarket, and mining & upgrading submarket. The report addresses both of these submarkets, quantifying the opportunity for growth they will face over the next ten years. For each submarket, visiongain analyses and forecasts capital expenditure, operational expenditure and production (bpd), offering the reader a thorough assessment of the oil sands market over the coming decade.

Visiongain has made a series of informed assumptions about underlying trends facing the oil sands market over the next ten years, such as the demand for liquid fuels, the global price of oil, price differentials, the price of inputs, as well as the likelihood of key infrastructure projects going ahead, such as TransCanada's Keystone XL Pipeline. Each of visiongain's assumptions is clearly laid out and explained within the analysis. The oil sands market is set to see strong and relatively steady levels of expenditure over the next ten years, creating opportunities for a range of companies involved in the market.
