Market Scenario


Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) is the process of employing microorganisms and their metabolites to recover the residual oil from of the oil reservoir. The process is typically carried out either by injecting micro-organisms into the reservoir, or an existing population of microorganism in the reservoir can be enriched by the injection of nutrients preferred by that microorganism. Globally, there are many ageing oil and gas infrastructure wells in which residual oil remains to be extracted.  Conventional methods used to recover oil from reservoirs leave the majority of oil in place. MEOR operations are employed for their low economic cost, enhanced recovery and less impact on the environment when compared with the conventional methods. They are also used on both onshore and offshore oil recovery along with applications such as corrosion control and prevention of well sourcing.


Lower crude oil prices in recent years and the ever increasing global need for fuel is driving the market for MEOR process. The North America and Europe region is expected to drive the MEOR market where researchers have identified that the process is applicable to more than 50% of oil wells. Further, Middle East and Africa region is expected to drive the market with increasing oil and gas recovery process from the existing old production wells. In the Asia region, the increased energy consumption in China and India are driving the market for MEOR process.  These countries are the largest net importers of oil and gas for their internal energy use which drives the need for increased fuel use. The market is expected to grow at a rate of CAGR 20% during the forecast period of 2014 to 2022.

Regional Analysis


Global Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery Market


The increasing global demand for energy and fuel have resulted in increased E&P investment in oil and gas exploration around the world. However, there are many aging oil and gas infrastructure projects from which there is a possibility to extract more oil. Conventional methods used for extraction of oil have very serious environmental concerns and also they are expensive. The other cost effective way of recovering residual oil from aging oil and gas reservoirs is the Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery technique. It is an enhanced recovery process in which microorganisms are used in a reservoir to improve oil recovery.


There is an increasing market for MEOR process in the Middle East and North Africa region where there are many aging oil infrastructures are nearing the end of their operational life span. Decreased oil prices and growing demand for oil is driving the investment in MEOR projects which are also environmentally safe. The market is further expected to be driven by recent researches that suggests that at least 50% of oil rigs in North American region especially in U.S. and Canada are suitable for MEOR. This region is expected to maintain its highest market share owing to numerous field trials and projects being conducted. The Asia-Pacific region is dominated by the energy imports from countries such as China and India who are net importers of oil and gas for their internal use. The demand for oil in the region is driving the market for MEOR process.
