In 2016, the Russian drilling market witnessed the shaping of new trends that will have a significant impact on business opportunities and strategic planning.
• In 2016, Russia’s oil production reached its all-time high totaling 547.5 million tons (10.95 million barrels per day). Compared to 2015, oil production grew by 3.8 percent, primarily driven by increase in drilling footage, which jumped by 23.2 percent year-on-year.
• In accordance with the Dec. 10, 2016 agreement to curb oil output, Russia’s oil production in 2017 is expected to drop by approximately 0.5 percent compared to 2016. This implies a serious adjustment for the drilling market, as footage under this scenario may drop by up to 20 percent year-on-year. In January-February, production drilling volumes have decreased by 17 percent relative to the three-year growth trend.
• In mid-term perspective, oil production in Russia is projected to grow moderately, reaching the level of 570 million tons in 2025. Drilling will mainly be oriented toward sustaining oil production levels. Starting 2018, the key trends on the drilling market will be moderate growth in physical volumes (the 2016 drilling footage level of 25.6 million meters is not going to be matched before 2021) and stronger growth in monetary terms.
• In monetary terms, the market will be driven by horizontal drilling, the share of which in total drilling has grown from 11 percent in 2010 to 36 percent in 2016, and is projected to reach 44 percent by 2021. This trend presents substantial opportunities for suppliers of services, equipment and technology in the areas of directional drilling and completion.
