Casing Centralizers Market: Development, Opportunities and Market Outlook (2016-26)

Oil & Gas industry incorporates a nexus of technologies to produce the hydrocarbons involving billions of dollars to meet the global energy demand. If one single operation goes wrong, the industry has to suffer huge losses in revenue. Thus, it is of utmost importance for the Oil & Gas industry that the operations go as planned. Casing centralizers are the equipments employed to make sure that the cementing operation goes the right way to form a good casing formation bond such that the casing is stabilized. The centralizers are the mechanical devices used to place the casing at the centre of the hole so that the cement is spread uniformly around the casing to make a good bond.

The primary functions of a centralizer are:

  • Preventing the casing to touch the borehole wall marking a continuous annular clearance
  • Ensuring the quality of the cementing job
  • Preventing casing buckling and differential sticking to the borehole wall.

Centralizers are very important in case of deviated wells or well with complex trajectories as the casing tends to lie on the lower side of the hole. The need of centralizers is increasing due to the increasing numbers of deviated wells. The casing centralizer market is estimated to be valued at XX billion USD and is expected to increase at a CAGR of XX % within the forecast period of XX %.

There are 4 types of casing centralizers used:

  • Bow Spring Centralizers: They are larger than the wellbore, thus providing complete centralization in vertical or slightly deviated wells. They have flexible bows which can pass through narrow hole sections and then expand in the targeted sections.
  • Rigid Centralizers: They are made to fit a specific casing or hole size and are smaller than the wellbore size. They are made out of solid steel bars or cast iron with a fixed blade height.
  • They include both the features of bow spring and rigid centralizers. They are made of flexible doublSemi-rigid centralizers:e crested bows which enable them to compress through the tight spots and severe doglegs.
  • Mold on centralizers: The mold on centralizer blades of required length and angle can be applied directly to the outer diameter of the casing string. They are made of carbon fiber ceramic materials.

Each centralizer is hinged so that it can be easily clamped on to the outside of the casing and secured by a retaining pin. The centralizer also has a stop collar which prevents its movement up and down the casing.

The effectiveness of a centralization program is defined by a term called “standoff” which describes the extent to which the pipe is centered. Placing too many centralizers on the casing string increases the drag during tripping in or tripping out the pipes. On the other hand, too few centralizers on the casing string will not ensure proper sealing. Hence, centralization program must be carefully designed taking into account various factors such as the well deviation, dogleg, temperature and pressure, drag and torque, etc. The centralization program is discussed thoroughly in Infraline’s exclusive report.

Casing and cementing operation is mandatory for all wells. Therefore, the centralizer market is directly related to the casing services market. The centralizer market is mainly driven by tremendous increase in number of deviated wells along with production and exploration activities, providing a good cement job through the soft formations, etc. Being an essential part of casing & cement operations, the centralizers market has some minor restraining factors. Lower oil prices will reduce the E&P activities and therefore affecting the market. Increasing centralization efficiencies and modifications to reduce drag and torque effects, etc. are some of the growth opportunities in the centralizer market during the forecast period.
