The Oilfield Chemicals Market 2011-2021

28 Nov 2011 • by Natalie Aster

The stimulating chemicals market is calculated to be worth $3.14bn in 2011. This value will grow to $3.93bn in 2016 and it is expected to reach $4.98bn in 2021. The CAGR for the stimulating chemicals market from 2011-2021 is expected to be 4.7%. The CAGRs for 2011-2016 and 2016-2021 are expected to be 4.6% and 4.8% respectively. This moderate growth will be driven by the necessity to increase productivity of the existing oilfields, since the major part of easily extractable oil has already been widely exploited, Visiongain predicts.

Key Trends and Developments in the Oilfield Chemicals Market

Visiongain: What are the key trends and developments in the oilfield chemicals market?

Anwarudin Saidu Mohamed: The applications of chemicals vary depending on the techniques. For instance, during secondary recovery, the treated water is injected in the reservoir where the quality is regulated with water treatment chemicals. In IOR (Improved Oil Recovery), chemicals are injected into the reservoir through the well about 2-3 feet behind the casing to remediate near wellbore damage. In CEOR (Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery), generally Alkaline Surfactant Polymer (ASP) is injected into the reservoir to obtain better sweep efficiency. Production chemical technologies are widely used in the aspect of crude oil conditioning and separation technologies in surface facilities. Apart from these, oilfield application also finds its stake in drilling application (drilling mud), wellbore clean-up and completion.
