Digital Oilfield Market Forecasts to 2028 – Global Analysis By Process (Production Optimization, Reservoir Optimization, Drilling Optimization), Application (Onshore, Offshore), Technology, End User, and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Digital Oilfield Market is accounted for $29.65 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $51.47 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. The term digital oilfield alludes to innovation based arrangements that incorporate progressed information investigation and programming frameworks to further develop oil recuperation from the seabed. The product recreates the activity of an oil and gas field by utilizing work processes and prescient investigation dependent on information from wellbores, repositories, and surface offices. This smoothes out the dynamic interaction by using keenly separated information and state of the art innovation. Oilfield digitalization supports the proficient arrangement of both human and machine assets, just as working on the general expense viability of activities.
Increased demand in oil & gas industry
Integrated operations in smart fields of the oil & gas industry unite operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT) to improve the decision-making process and enhance operational performance; thus, improving the RoI. It reduces downtime and the total cost of ownership (TCO) and improves the productivity of operations. Digital oilfield encompasses both tools and processes to gather data across the entire set of upstream activities. Operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT) captures data with greater frequency from all parts of the oil and gas value chain and analyzes it on a real-time basis. Thus, optimizing reservoir, well, and facility performance, which results in an increased RoI. For instance, in 2018, GE and Noble Corporation plc entered into a partnership to launch the world’s first digital drilling vessel, targeted to achieve 20.0% operational expenditure reduction across the targeted equipment and improve drilling efficiency. This is a concrete step forward to unlock the immense potential of digital solutions for offshore drilling operations.
Scarcity of quality information
The collection of real-time data and its productive analysis is one of the major hurdles in the digital oilfield market. The demand for operational digital oilfield solutions is increasing due to the limited fuel supply in the market, thus compelling the oil industry to adopt new and improved technologies. Predictive analytics condense large data making it more valuable in the digital oilfield market but knowing how to make the information cross-functional would be vital to provide useful insights to assets. The use of various analytical tools and their operational ability makes software prone to cyberattacks as a considerable amount of data is being collected from the field. The information collected should be able to validate data from the field as well as minimize the gaps/errors in data. This could impact the result of the analytic software and hence, the decision made by the operators. For instance, in Asia Pacific, an Indonesian state-owned oil and natural gas corporation, Pertamina installed real-time digital nozzles to collect and monitor data. The modern digital oilfield collects data on a real-time basis from the field. A huge amount of digital data is extracted from automation technologies such as SCADA or distributed control systems. Data retrieval and analysis is a continuous process that requires special care and an adequate skill set to make effective decisions. This factor is making it the major restraint for the digital oilfield market.
Growing demand for offshore discoveries
The oil & gas industry is going through a phase of technological advancements in exploration technology for deepwater exploration and production activities and the commercial viability of the projects. Current advances are allowing oil companies to improve recovery and accelerate production. Offshore wells may have a different level of automation, which can range from simple one-way monitoring to complex subsurface controls with intelligent completions. Foreseeing near future opportunities, Petrobras has created a corporate program dedicated to studying, developing, and implementing digital integrated field management (GeDIg) among its production assets. Petrobras selected the Carapeba field as a pilot project. It is a mature field composed of three wells located in the northeastern part of the Campos Basin, which has installed automated subsurface sensors in the wells. Oil companies are heavily investing in command centers and remote monitoring so that operation specialists, engineers, and geoscientists do not need to travel to remote oilfields. Cross-disciplinary teams composed of geoscientists, engineers, operation managers, and financial analysts now interact through remote command centers encouraging teamwork and collaboration by solving problems faster. For instance, Rockwell Automation collaborated with Schlumberger to create a production advisory system. Combining connected production technology with oil and gas software, services, and domain expertise from Schlumberger, the digital solution helps to optimize production by connecting upstream operators with critical, real-time analytics, and domain insights to reduce deployment risks and costs.
Interoperability of multiple system components
In efforts to streamline and integrate dispersed assets across the oil & gas well pad, pipeline, and terminal markets, a wide range of digital oilfield solutions, which include SCADA software, flow computers, RTUs, and application and configuration software, are offered by different vendors in the oil & gas industry. Digital oilfield systems have found their way into the upstream sector of the oil & gas industry because of their effective monitoring and supervisory capabilities. Companies operating in the upstream segment often buy and assemble components from different vendors depending upon customer requirements. This makes the market highly consumer-dominated, and as a result, no standard or generalized product can be developed by a single player. In that case, interoperability with other systems and components turns out to be a challenge for upstream operators. Most of the time, it becomes a constraint to add any alternative system, hardware, or software that is not compatible with some of the digital oilfield systems, such as the SCADA system, as it has to seamlessly integrate with the existing system for optimum results. Developments with respect to the integration of various services with each other are expected to overcome this challenge faced by oilfield operators.
The onshore segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The onshore segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth due to the accessibility of large capacity reservoirs on land in conventional and unconventional reserves. In addition, discoveries of oil, gas, and shale reserves, along with production from mature wells, will positively escalate the segment market dynamics.
The hardware solutions segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The hardware solutions segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. The market for hardware solutions segment is driven by the growing need to reduce nonproductive time, which increases emphasis on such hardware components offered by this segment. The hardware solutions segment includes distributed control systems (DCS), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), smart wells, safety systems, wireless sensors, programmable logic controller (PLC), computer equipment & application hardware, process automation manager, and human-machine interaction instrument, which is responsible for surveillance and communication data transfer in both onshore and offshore fields. Europe is estimated to hold the largest share of the digital oilfield market, followed by North America because of the growing need for reducing manual intervention and rising demand for big data management are expected to drive the market for digital oilfield market.
