Sand Control Tools Market: Introduction
Management or minimization of sand production during the production of petroleum is known as sand control. Tools used during these operations are sand control tools. In oil and gas operations, sand production can cause erosion and wear of equipment which may result in downtime and expensive repairs.
Hence sand controls tools play significant role in oil & gas production. Sand control system can be either passive sand control or active sand control. Passive sand control is a non- intrusive method while active sand control is an intrusive one which involves different kind of operations with multiple tools.
Sand management and control is a major concern for oil and gas industry, as the resources are challenging. Various tools or number of methods are applied for sand control of which inflow control devices are very incredible.
Conventionally used for inflow balancing, inflow control devices (ICD) are now also deployed to effectively assist in the sand control operation. ICDs are considered a proven addition to the optimization of reservoir and offer cost-effective designs.
Sand Control Tools Market: Dynamics
Sand control tools are used for advanced sand control are widely used in oil and gas industry to enhance production. Oil & gas industry requires some form of sand control tools/systems for economic production.
Increasing oil and gas exploration activities all over the world is anticipated to drive the sand control tools market in the coming years. In addition, oil and gas industry operators are finding improved means of smart working and costs reduction which is anticipated to positively impact the market growth.
Primary method or tools used for sand control operations are gravel packs, which requires conventional rigs and are expensive. This factor can have an adverse impact on the growth of global sand control tools market.A number of newer technology which keep sand in place without unduly restricting productivity have taken over traditional completion methods.
Manufacturers operating in the sand control tools market are greatly emphasizing on extending production by conjunction of ICDs with sand screen technologies. This type of solution which is prominently used in Middle East and North Sea is gaining recognition all over the world.
Sand Control Tools Market: Regional Outlook
In Asia Pacific, oil and gas exploration activities in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia as well as Australia is expected to create significant demand for sand control tools in the coming years. Japan is estimated to witness steady growth during the forecast period. North America and Latin America are anticipated to witness moderate growth in the global sand control tools market.
Whereas tremendously increasing oil and gas exploration activities in countries such as Nigeria, U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia which are the biggest exporter of oil and gas in Middle East and Africa are estimated to create higher demand for sand control tools in the forecast period.
