• In 2015, the hydraulic fracturing market witnessed significant changes that shaped or enhanced the key trends in mid-term. Conventional fracking operations continue to lose momentum as a well stimulation factor at most oilfields. At a time when the efficiency of frac jobs is falling, oil and gas companies are reducing their operating costs in order to prevent substantial drilling budget cuts. Multistage fracking has further established itself as an enhanced oil recovery technique, following the trend of growing importance of horizontal drilling. In some oil and gas companies the contribution of multistage fracking (as part of horizontal well construction) to production growth over the last few years has nearly matched that of massive fracking, currently lagging behind only by a fraction of a percent instead of multiple times as had been the case earlier.
• Jobs on the operating well stock (excluding recently drilled wells), which is the largest segment of the fracking market, has seen its dynamics shift. During the 2010-2014 span, the overall number of frac jobs significantly increased, yet this was accompanied by steadily declining rates of incremental production resulting from these jobs. In 2015, oil and gas companies invested mostly in production drilling, which resulted in a 10% growth by the end of the year. By contrast, the number of fracking operations in 2015 dropped by 5% year-on-year, marking the first decrease since 2011.
• The number of operations on new wells (both at old and new fields) reflected the growth in the drilling of new wells, yet grew at an even quicker rate due to an increasing share of new wells being fracked. Consequently, the growth at the new stock made up for the shrinking demand at older wells.
• In the medium term (2016-2020) demand in the conventional fracking segment is expected to stagnate: provided there is no major technological breakthrough, a moderate rise at the new well stock will only make up for a negative trend at the operating well stock. The multistage fracking market will continue to grow alongside the expanding horizontal drilling market, a growing share of unconventional reserves, and more complex engineering and technological solutions. By 2020, the multistage fracking market can reach 40-45% of the conventional fracking market in monetary terms. Following the trend observed in the multistage fracking market, a significant rise is expected in the market of hi-tech equipment and services for horizontal well completion.
The Russian Hydraulic Fracturing Market report aims to provide a wide range of market players with analytical support required to make timely strategic and operational decisions. For this purpose, we have focused on the following key elements:
- Key growth factors and development trends, both pertaining to Russia's oil and gas industry as a whole, as well as those specific to the hydraulic fracturing market and its main segments.
- Market size estimates for hydraulic fracturing by 2025. This outlook is broken down by every major oil- and gas-producing region, and factors in particular traits of the drilling market in each region.
- Analysis of key customers and contractors, including an assessment of hydraulic fracturing capacity (frac fleets) and work volumes.
The report provides a basis for building estimates for a whole range of oilfield services and equipment segments that relate to hydraulic fracturing, including well completions, reservoir well modeling and monitoring, diffferent types of downhole treatment operations, and other work.
