Oilfield water Management Market: Development, Opportunities and Market Outlook (2016-26)

Over the years, Oil and Gas industry has played a significant role in development and industrialization by catering the ever-growing energy requirement, therefore making it the backbone of present-day modernization. The energy-water nexus, a term used to showcase the interconnectivity of water in oil and gas industry refers to the critical nature of water in the industry. Water is used for hydrocarbon production and conversely, energy is also used for water production. Upstream sector deals with this on daily basis as water is both the largest input and output in the oil and gas operations, and therefore optimization of oilfield water management is the need of the hour.

Produced water is a term used to describe the water which is generated as a byproduct during production along with hydrocarbons. Water management refers to a system with well-defined solutions and procedures which aims at minimizing the use of fresh water in the industry by reusing and recycling produced water and also make the produced water fit for utilization for other purposes (drinking, agriculture etc.). The primary objectives of water management system are to contribute to overall environmental and water conservation, and to improve operator profitability. The advantages of an optimized water management system are:

  • Longer productive well life
  • Reduced artificial lifting costs
  • Reduced environmental concerns and costs
  • Minimized treatment and disposal of water
  • Reduced well maintenance costs

The growing environment conservation concerns and lack of fresh water marks a substantial growth in Oilfield water ManagementMarket. Oilfield water Management Market had an estimated worth of 6.1 billion dollars in 2016, and is growing at a steady rate of XX% every year. Our extensive and in-depth analysis concludes that the market is booming and suggests that it will eventually reach an approximated net worth of xx billion dollars by 2026.

Technology and service overview:

Produced water is generally brine, which contains various dissolved salts from the reservoir and is produced along with hydrocarbon. Being exposed to high pressures and temperatures and usually containing impurities (hydrocarbons, metals etc.) makes it absolutely necessary to treat it before reusing or releasing it in the environment. Oilfield water production is of about 220 million BWPD, which means every barrel of oil production produces roughly three barrels of water. Thus, proper management of water can be a huge challenge for the operators.

  • Avoid or reduce initial production of water
  • Inject produced water back into the subsurface
  • Discharge produced water
  • Reuse in oil and gas operations
  • Other useful consumption after treating it etc.

As amount of water produced is tremendous, treatment and reutilization of produced water is an effective alternative. The primary objectives while treating the water include:

  • De-oiling
  • Soluble organics removal
  • Disinfection
  • Suspended solids removal
  • Dissolved gas removal
  • Desalination or demineralization etc.

Selection of produced water treatment structure is driven by overall treatment objective, with economics playing a major role. The treatment processes are segregated on the basis of primary, secondary or tertiary separation techniques. Packed Bed Adsorption, Ion Exchange, use of degassers, electro-coagulation etc. are some of the treatment process used in the industry.

Thorough and comprehensive analysis of complete Oilfield water Management process, technology and treatment processes are provided in the report.

The primary drivers of the market include growing concerns of environmental and water conservation, increasing requirement of water in production activities and growing need of water for commercial and domestic activities (drinking water, agriculture etc.). However, lack of firm regulations related to water management especially in developing countries (like India, Indonesia, and Sudan etc.),alternates to water injection (EOR etc.), Equipment and facility costs etc. are expected to remain a challenging factor for the market. However, firmer environmental regulation implementations through the years and overall ability of the system to generate profits portray tremendous growth opportunity in the market.

Comprehensive competitive analysis and profiles of major market players such as Veolia, Siemens, GE, Schlumberger, Halliburton Company, Weatherford International, Baker Hughes, Exterran Corporation etc. is also provided in this report.
