The Offshore Pipeline and Control Line Market Report to 2016, published by Infield Systems, offers a comprehensive analysis of the oil and gas Pipeline, Flowline, Control Line and Umbilical Control Line sectors of the offshore oil and gas industry. The Offshore Pipeline and Control Line Market Report provides analysis on the following core market segments: SURF (Subsea, Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines), Conventional Pipelines, Trunk/Export Pipelines, Control Lines and Umbilical Control Lines. The Pipeline forecasts are also split between Rigid Pipelines and Flowlines and Flexible Flowlines. A region by region assessment is also provided, which highlights the effects that macroeconomic forces can have on offshore oil and gas industry pipeline developments. In addition to the forecasts, this seventh edition of the Offshore Pipelines and Control Lines Market Report To 2016, provides case studies for planned, high profile, offshore pipeline projects.

The global events of 2011 had a significant impact on the oil and gas industry. Today, even taking into account the risks of a double dip recession in Europe, the macro environment is more positive and the industry appears to be undergoing an expansionary phase driven by larger E&P budgets from operators. In terms of the pipeline and control lines market, this can be seen by the increase in kilometres laid - 2011 saw a 9.1% increase compared to the previous year. Infield Systems anticipates that more than 89,000 kilometres of pipelines and control lines will be installed during the 2012-2016 forecast period. 42% of the total investment is expected to be directed towards projects in Europe and Asia. Although the average length and diameter tend to decrease in deep water environments, due to issues with pipeline integrity and installation limitations, capital expenditure per kilometre increases significantly with greater water depths as a result of the increased project complexity in such environments.
In Europe, subsea and trunkline developments in Norway and the UK are forecast to drive investment levels. The UK increase will primarily be driven by Independent operators developing marginal oil and gas fields via tie-backs to existing infrastructure. IOCs are also expected to drive growth as they explore the UK's deeper water potential, for example, Total's Laggan gas field and Chevron's Rosebank oil and gas field. In Norway, Statoil is forecast to be the primary source of investment and is expected to invest four times more Capex than it did in 2007-2011 in order to support its increased number of subsea tiebacks and to further the development of new oil and gas fields in frontier areas.
In Asia, the unprecedented demand for hydrocarbons is forcing indigenous National Oil Companies to increase their investment in pipelines in order to expand the network of connected shallow water gas platforms. Malaysia's NOC, Petronas, for example, is expected to invest more than $2.9bn in pipelines and control lines for shallow water projects, such as, the Kebabangan and Bergading area gas fields.
Australasia is expected to see the largest proportionate growth during the forecast period. Whilst pipeline developments will continue to be installed in shallow waters, the distance from shore is increasing which is driving growth in the pipelines market. Over 5,900 kilometres of pipeline are expected to be installed during 2012-2016, compared to just over 1,500 kilometres over 2007-2011. Subsea related developments such as Inpex's Ichthys and Chevron's Gorgon and Wheatstone projects are likely to dominate the future scene.
In the deepwater Atlantic triangle area of West Africa, Brazil and the US GoM, operators are expected to drive an increase in pipeline Capex of nearly 50% over the forecast period. In deepwater US GoM, pipeline and control line related investment was significantly hit by the financial crisis and the Macondo incident with year-on-year declines since 2008. 2012, however, looks likely to see activity return to more historically consistent levels as a result of the upturn in awards. 2012 projects that were awarded in the 2010-2011 period include: Chevron's Walker Ridge Jack/St Malo and Big Foot and Anadarko's Keathley Canyon Lucius. In Brazil, Infield Systems expects the main impact of pre-salt pipelines investment to occur from 2012 onwards with capital expenditure linked to projects related to the Lula, Sapinhoa, Franco and Libra developments.
On a global level, operators Petrobras and Chevron are forecast to account for the largest share of capital investment as a result of the volume, complexity and increased depth of their projects. In comparison to other segments of the oil and gas industry, where investment by operator is relatively concentrated to a limited number of oil companies, the pipelines and control lines market has a more diverse client base.
Overall, 2012 is expected to be a milestone year with unprecedented levels of activity expected in terms of the length of pipeline and control lines being installed.
