Downhole Tractors: Market Overview
Oil & gas drilling has enabled oil & gas industry to tap reservoirs that were difficult to exploit, located at remote locations, and to increase surface contact with reservoir to enhance production. While the technique has enhanced production activity, it has also posed a number of challenges during drilling and completion activities. Wire-line logging, measurement while drilling (MWD), removal of debris, among others became a costly operation as gravity effect becomes zero and cannot pull the string to the bottom hole. This gave rise to the development of downhole tractors in oil & gas operations. Downhole tractors acts as a passenger tool, used for driving well intervention tools, logging tools, perforation tools and other parts of drill string through the highly deviated section of the well. Downhole tractors can be designed to be fit-in a standard electric line (e-line) tool string and uses same surface equipment as the e-line string. Hence, the deployment of downhole tractors avoid additional costs, equipment, space and personnel, making them a cost-effective solution in horizontal and directional wells. With the global oil & gas industry witnessing increased exploration & production (E&P) activity, coupled with elevated levels of directional drilling wells around the world, the downhole tractors market is anticipated to witness a healthy demand in the coming years.
Downhole Tractors: Market Dynamics
Recent developments in unconventional reservoir production have been driving the demand for downhole tractors. Unconventional reservoir production requires drilling of directional and horizontal wells, for accessing more surface contact with the wells, to improve production rates and for successful deployment of tertiary production methods. This has been one of the primary driving factors in the global downhole tractors market. Recovering crude oil prices have also fuelled global E&P activity, creating further growth opportunities for downhole tractors market.
E-line downhole tractors have been witnessing tremendous growth opportunities, especially in offshore production activities, like in Gulf of Mexico and North Sea. With recent developments, e-line downhole tractors are now not only utilized as conveyance tools, but also used to deliver a variety of mechanical and electrohydraulic tools for wellbore cleaning, well intervention, valve manipulation, and lost tool recovery applications.
Uncertainty in crude oil prices, and rising geopolitical tensions between oil producing and exporting (OPEC) countries, are anticipated to restrain the global downhole tractors market. However, given the rising investments in oil & gas exploration and drilling across key producing countries, the market growth of downhole tractors is anticipated to remain robust during the forecast period.
Downhole Tractors Market: Regional Outlook
Hydraulic fracturing in the U.S. has been witnessing a significant growth in the recent years. Growing shale gas production and horizontal drilling in the country is estimated to create noteworthy demand for downhole tractors during the forecast period. Middle East & Africa, being one of the leading producers of oil & gas, is anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for downhole tractors market during the forecast period. China, driven by horizontal CBM drilling, and Australia, owing to rising offshore drilling activity, are anticipated to propel the downhole tractors market demand in the Asia Pacific region. Latin America, owing to improved production activity in Brazil, Venezuela and Mexico, is anticipated to present robust growth opportunities for downhole tractors market.
