LONDON, September 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
The Global Advanced Oil & Gas Exploration Technologies Market 2011-2021 is Visiongain's latest energy report, analysing how this important market will develop over the next ten years. The report quantifies the market in terms of global size and breaks the market down into seven regional markets with forecasts and analysis provided for each regional market from 2011-2021. The report also examines the major drivers and restraints influencing the market over the next decade and explains the major technologies used as well as contemporary innovations. Sub-market forecasts are also provided for the three most prominent exploration technologies. Visiongain research indicates that global spending in 2011 on advanced oil & gas exploration technologies will total $10.17bn.
Oil & gas exploration was once a painstaking, inefficient and time consuming activity. Prospectors looked for surface seepages from underground reserves, which occur only over a small proportion of deposits. Today, technological innovation allows more efficient management of fields and better evaluation of exploration prospects, reducing the need to drill numerous exploratory wells, thus saving money and minimising environmental damage. A combination of high oil prices, improved extraction technologies, increasing global energy demands, and supply concerns including; declining production, depleting production fields, maturing reservoirs and increasingly more difficult frontier exploration - deeper, more complex and more remote - is creating new opportunities for growth in the advanced oil & gas exploration technologies market. As the need to find new oil & gas deposits increases, the exploration industry will be relentlessly driven toward the use of more advanced surveying methods, including seismic 2D, 3D and 4D imaging, Controlled Source Electromagnetics (CSEM) and Remote Sensing techniques.
Though the industry will be faced with the restraints of proving the effectiveness of some of the new technologies on a commercial scale, overcoming environmental concerns, and confronting a weak global economy, the advanced oil & gas exploration technologies market is likely to provide substantial opportunities for potential investors.
This report offers an examination of the advanced exploration technologies market over the next decade, providing detailed market forecasts for each of the regional markets and offering in-depth analysis of the opportunities and challenges facing companies in the advanced oil & gas exploration market throughout the world. The analysis and forecasting has been underpinned by extensive consultation with expert opinion.
