Why is Demand for Flare Gas Recovery System Increasing in the GCC and Northern Africa Countries?
Demand in the Middle East and Africa market is expected to rise at nearly 5.0% CAGR over the forecast period. Countries such as Qatar, KSA, Algeria and Tunisia have emerged as prominent players in the flare gas recovery system market in terms of consumption.
The Middle East and Africa have been one of the leading oil and gas producing regions with OPEC countries being the epicenter of production hubs. Increasing competition in the oil and gas sector has compelled prominent oil and gas companies in the region to concentrate on their emissions and carbon footprints, not only pricing.
However, pricing in the region remains one of the highest around the world owing to high import rate. Since the ambient temperature in the region is higher than other countries, and frequent sandstorms require more durable fittings, demand for flare gas recovery system is expected to remain high in these regions over the assessment period.
How Will the Flare Gas Recovery System Expand Across Russia?
Europe is one of the key manufacturers of flare gas recovery systems across the globe. In 2021, it is expected to account for over 14% of total flare gas recovery system sales. As per FMI, Russia is expected to hold 12.9% of the Europe market share in 2031.
In recent years, improved technology, and stringent regulation against flaring in Europe to minimize emissions and payback period are propelling sales of flare gas recovery systems in the country.
According to World Bank, Russia tops the list of global gas flaring countries in 2020, contributing 15% of global gas flaring. Mixed performance is seen across Russia, with a significant increase in flaring at oil production sites in East Siberia, along with improvements in flaring reduction in the KMAO region in West Siberia.
Considering this, FMI has projected a steady rise in FGRS sales in Russia, owing to its high oil and gas producing capacities which would require proper systems to cut emissions and flaring. Besides this, demand for flare gas recovery systems is anticipated to rise in the biogas and landfill sectors over the assessment period.
