Revamping of Oil & Gas Infrastructure Can Prove Beneficial for Global Offshore Decommissioning Market :

Pune, India, October, 2018 /press release/- Market Research Future Published a Cooked Research Report on Offshore Decommissioning  Market Research Report


An overhauling impact is what the oil & gas sector expecting since long. With the rising number of aging oil & gas fields, dismantling of a few has become imperative. Offshore decommissioning is the perfect answer to such an issue. The next five years are expecting such shredding down of almost 600 projects worldwide which in itself is indicative of the burgeoning decommissioning business. But the entire process requires efficiency as a malfunction in the process can adversely affect the environment and spill hazardous substances threatening the marine ecosystem. The global offshore decommissioning market can expect a CAGR of 6.93% during the forecast period (2016-2023). Market Research Future’s (MRFR) report on the offshore decommissioning market reveals factors that could influence the market substantially before covering the segments in detail. Several old-schooled structures are awaiting dismantling in the North Sea region and the Gulf of Mexico which could boost the offshore decommissioning market significantly. Furthermore, strict regulations are also spurring the need for such rigorous steps.

However, the cost varies from one operator to the operator and globally their number is minimal which limits options for people. This uncertainty cost can restrain the market growth of the offshore decommissioning market during the forecast period.

Industry Trend:

New technology has been developed by Interwell and tested by Spirit Energy, which uses thermite and controlled chemical reaction in the well, could benefit the oil & energy sector by bringing down the cost.

Bureau Veritas, a global leader in testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) services, has recently launched their latest decommissioning guide with up-to-date, easy to understand, the guidance of the regulations applicable to decommissioning work, from operators and stakeholders to the supply chain.
