The Oil & Gas Drilling Technologies Market 2011-2021

03 Oct 2011 • by Natalie Aster

Although oil & gas drilling has been taking place for over 100 years, the technological advances in recent years along with increasing extraction of unconventional oil & gas resources has revived interest and investment in the drilling industry over the past few years. The technologies are more and more integrated to enable faster and more accurate drilling in deepwater and ultra-deepwater and help secure oil & gas wells in the most demanding and challenging environments around the globe. These technologies allow a more rapid analysis of rock formations and a more accurate data acquisition from geological areas being explored. Various technologies are used to drill horizontal and directional wells that enable extraction of hydrocarbons from more difficult and unconventional resources. In the report “The Oil & Gas Drilling Technologies Market 2011-2021” Visiongain calculates the global oil & gas drilling technologies market defined as, spending on new drilling equipment, infrastructure and upgrading of existing facilities to be worth $70.1bn in 2011.
