Higher Oil Prices Inspire Exploration

Press Release

Prime movers in the North American oil and gas industry to recover lost ground with the development of new fields says analysis

According to an analysis by Frost & Sulllivan, major players in the North American oil and gas market, which is characterized by instabilities, have taken a hit over the last couple of years due to the economic decline and price volatility.  Furthermore, upstream companies look to these price fluctuations to dictate increases and decreases in exploration and production activities.

"Higher oil prices will encourage oil and gas companies to increase their budgets for exploration and production," said a Frost & Sullivan research analyst.  "This will, in turn, result in technological advances and revenue generation in the prime movers market."

New reserves exploration, tapping oil sands, and higher numbers of deep water projects will shore up the market and compensate for the drying up of onshore fields. Unconventional supplies such as natural gas, coal bed methane (CBM), shale gas, and tar sands are expected to meet the current energy demand, which cannot be satisfied by oil reserves alone.

The new report finds that total market revenues are anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5 percent from 2010 to 2017, to reach $1.03 billion. The United States accounts for nearly 82.4 percent of the equipment sold, and Canada maintains the remaining 17.6 percent.
