Offshore Decommissioning Market is expected to grow a CAGR of 5.9% by 2030: Coherent Market Insights

Offshore Decommissioning is the process of safely retiring and dismantling aging and obsolete offshore oil and gas facilities, such as platforms, wells, and pipelines, once they reach the end of their productive life.

Burlingame, Nov. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to Coherent Market Insights, Offshore Decommissioning Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6.3 billion in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period (2023-2030). Offshore decommissioning is a process of safe and responsible removal and deposition of offshore oil and gas infrastructure such as wells and platforms. This process is carried out when such infrastructure reach their life end. The process includes, dismantling structures, well plugging, and maintaining the environmental protection in the marine environment.

Key Trends and Analysis of the Global Offshore Decommissioning Market:

Shallow water segment, based on water depth is dominating the global offshore decommissioning market. This trend is likely to boost growth of the market in the coming future. The demand for decommissioning is likely to increase in the near future, owing to rising aging structures in the U.K. and shallow North Sea continental shelf. North Sea structures are heavier and decommissioning of such heavy structures needs significant panning as well as equipment. This further adds into the decommissioning cost.

Market Drivers:

The number of abandoned wells is on the rise along with presence of huge mature offshore oilfields. When a well has reached end of its lifetime, it requires to be permanently abandoned and plugged. The operations of plug and abandoned wells need cement plugs in the wellbore for isolating the reservoir and fluid-bearing formations. With increasing number of such wells, the demand for offshore decommissioning is increasing. This factor is further driving growth of the global market.

Increasing number of governments are focusing on well plug and abandoned activities. Government of several countries are also investing in such operations. For instance, in April 2021, the U.S. parliament passed a bill, which enabled US$ 8 billion for cleaning up abandoned oil wells in the country, in order to create jobs for oil and gas labours. This move was also supposed to lower climate-warming emissions. Such government initiatives are driving growth of the market.

Market Key Developments:

In May 2021, Heerema Marine Contractors and AF Offshore Decome announced to have begun its one of the biggest topside removal project. The project is commenced in the North Sea on behalf of TAQA.

In June 2021, Baker Hughes announced the opening of an oil and gas multimodal facility (MMF) in Angola. The facility will be delivering a suite of products and services in oil and gas value chain.
