The Subsea Market Report To 2016 is devoted to the global subsea oil and gas market and provides in-depth analysis of trends, issues, forecasts and technological developments. The Subsea Market Report analyses the subsea market at a number of levels by providing information at a regional level, by providing details of the activities of the predominant exploration and production oil companies and subsea equipment manufacturers (OEMs – original equipment manufacturers) and finally the Subsea Market Report dissects subsea capital expenditure into different components including subsea trees, manifolds, templates and the elements of subsea processing: subsea booster pumps, subsea compression and subsea separation.
The Global Perspectives Subsea Market Report to 2016 is available as a printed hard copy report or as PDF files. In addition to the report, the package includes access to a unique subsea projects database – Subsea Online (Essentials), which provides details of major subsea fields being planned or considered for development over the next five years. Prices for the report start at £2,200, with additional copies and corporate licences available. Upgrades to Subsea Online (Standard) or Subsea Online (Professional) can also be purchased.

As operators face the dual challenge of sustaining their production levels in mature regions and effectively exploiting the uncapped reserves in growth areas, such as, West Africa, US Gulf of Mexico and Brazil, the potential for subsea capital expenditure throughout the forecast period has increased dramatically.
In order to leverage against declining production, Operators are being forced to venture into remote and harsher locations. These projects require top tier equipment that can cost significantly more than the standard equivalent. Infield Systems estimate that ultra-deep installations will account for almost 25% of the annual tree market by 2016. Important developments include the pilot projects in the Iara and Sapinhoa fields and a series of EWTs in Sapinhoa, Libra, Iara, Franco and Iguazu fields
Prospects for manufacturers are also looking positive. The market outlook shows a well-supplied market with a total capacity of 690 trees. Towards the end of the forecast period, Infield Systems expects higher utilisation rates and the start of a saturated market, driven mostly by the increasing demand for subsea trees in main phases in Brazil and West Africa. Global subsea tree manufacturers' utilisation rates are expected to increase to an average of 75% in the next 3 years, up from 49% in the 2009-2011 period.
Advances in technology are increasingly being tested and deployed in response to the offshore industry's demand for solutions to challenges, such as: deeper and harsher waters, sustaining production rates in mature developments, boosting flow rates in low pressure reservoirs, accommodating a larger number of fields tied back to host facilities and ensuring the energy and cost efficiency of a project. Possible projects that could benefit from the use of advanced seabed technologies include: the mature fields of the North Sea and the US GoM, where a large number of small developments are expected to be tied back to existing platforms in order to be commercially viable. Infield Systems also expects that West Africa will be one of the key regions for implementing subsea processing because of its already extensive deepwater production, significant oil reserves and most importantly the geographical distribution of its fields that require multiple wells being tied-back to one central processing facility.
In Africa, oil companies such as Total, BP, ExxonMobil, Chevron and Eni will try to take advantage of the area's ample resources to leverage against the declining reserves from other mature areas. Total is leading the subsea bill with a projected US$8 billion of expenditure within the forecast period.
Asia is also becoming an increasingly important part of the world for the global oil and gas market as it is the fastest growing region in terms of energy demand, and the hub of the global LNG sector. The unfortunate events of 2011 in Fukushima, Japan, have also served to increase the region's dependency on natural gas.
Australia is emerging as a major player in the global natural gas market due to the development of offshore natural gas and (onshore) coal bed methane (CBM) projects. Post 2013, a significant backlog of major projects is predicted to provide a boost to the market. More than 50% of the forecast subsea market is expected to relate to subsea tiebacks to a fixed, a floating or a terminal facility.
The European energy market is one of the largest in the world yet it is also a region facing oil and gas production decline. The declining production in this mature region dictates the need for additional expenditure on infrastructure, EOR technologies and exploration campaigns in order to sustain or enhance existing levels.
Latin America, particularly Brazil, has the potential to emerge as a major offshore energy frontier in the global oil market. Petrobras has begun to reveal reserve estimates for its pre-salt finds that stand to significantly increase Brazil's total estimated level of reserves. 38% of the projected subsea Capex will be needed to develop the pre-salt projects.
Finally, the North American market finds itself in a challenging period; global recession followed by the Deep-water Horizon disaster, the last two years have seen a change in the regulatory environment governing operator activities across the region. Any future subsea equipment and infrastructure will need to comply with these regulations and have higher safety specifications, something that will lead to greater capital expenditure per development. In addition, the rise of the local Shale Gas market threatens to mix up the offshore market dynamics by diverting the operators' attention onshore.
Purchasers of the Global Perspectives Subsea Market Report receive 12 months access to a database of major subsea projects (fields being developed with four or more subsea wells) being planned or considered for development in the current year and four years forward, worldwide. Subsea Online (Essentials) is continually updated with the following information provided about each project;
The Subsea Online (Essentials) access can be upgraded to Subsea Online (Standard) or Subsea Online (Professional) or to include other field types or data sets from the Infield Offshore Energy Database.
Subsea Online (Standard) identifies all fields which are going to be developed with one or more subsea wells in the current year and four years forward, worldwide.
Subsea Online (Professional) identifies all fields, operational and future, which have been, or are going to be, developed with one or more subsea completions.
Subsea Online (Standard) and (Professional) list the same data set as the Essentials edition, however, additional tables are provided that include the following information:
A third data set is provided that shows the total numbers of trees starting up annually from 1960 through to 2027 split by: Tree Manufacturer, Country of Supply and Year of Start Up.
These two additional data sets are customised, therefore, can only be downloaded from InfieldLive and the user is not able to run online searches using the InfieldLive search engine.
