Enhanced Oil Recovery Market By Technology (Thermal Injection, Gas Injection, Chemical Injection) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2023


Published: Oct 2016

Enhanced Oil recovery (EOR) is the technique used to increase the amount of crude oil that can be extracted from the reservoir. In this process, the oil recovery is increased by injecting substance into the oil well to increase pressure and reduce viscosity of the crude oil. In conventional process, the recovery from oil well is approximately 25% of the oil reserve capacity whereas with EOR techniques upto 70% of the oil can be extracted from the reservoir. In case of heavy oil reservoir where crude extraction from primary recovery is difficult, EOR techniques such as thermal injection are widely used to enhance the oil recovery. However, this technique is not effective when the reservoirs are deep or too thin. Moreover, thermal injection technique requires high capital investment which may a feasible solution in case of smaller oil fields. Similarly, chemical injection techniques are most effective to increase the yield in case of wet oil reservoirs. Increasing use of gas injection techniques as tertiary recovery method especially CO2 injection techniques are expected to intensify the growth of the enhanced oil recovery market till 2023.

Global enhanced oil recovery market is gaining traction owing to declining oil prices from past two years has adversely affected the profit margin of oil producers. Moreover, increasing number of matured reserves coupled with increasing production of shale gas. Thus, oil produce are concentrating on enhancing oil production from existing wells rather than investing in new wells. Such factors are expected to drive the growth of global enhanced oil recovery market. Besides this, EOR gas injection technique provides added advantage for the commercial scale use of carbon dioxide (CO2) generated by various industries and power plants coupled with various government initiatives for the disposal of green house gases is expected to drive the demand of enhanced oil recovery market over the forecast period 2016-2023.

Global enhanced oil recovery market has been estimated to be valued at US$ 45.8 Bn by the end of 2016 and is expected to attain revenue of US$ 159.5 Bn by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 19.5% during the forecast period 2016-2023.

On the basis of technology, the enhanced oil recovery market is categorized into following types:

  • Thermal injection
  • Gas injection
  • Chemical injection

Enhanced Oil recovery (EOR) is widely used to increase the recovery rate in matured oil field. Crude oil found in earth surface is of various qualities depending upon the presence of sulphur content which makes the crude highly viscous. Oil producers use various oil recovery techniques to increase the recovery of oil from the reserves. Increasing number of matured oilfields coupled with growing production of non-conventional shale gas fueling the demand for enhanced oil recovery techniques. Moreover, slowdown in oil & gas industry influencing oil producers to concentrate on enhancing the oil recovery from the existing oilfields rather than investing in new oilfields.

On the basis of technology, the enhanced oil recovery market can be segmented as thermal injection, gas injection, and chemical injection. Thermal injection is the most common enhanced oil recovery technique used to reduce the viscosity of the highly viscous crude under the earth surface. In this process, the steam and hot water is injected to the earth’s surface to increase the temperature of the high viscous crude which in turn reduces the viscosity of the crude oil facilitating smooth recovery of crude oil. The segment is expected to remain as most dominant segment among the technologies segment over the forecast period.

Gas injection method uses carbon dioxide (CO2) for the recovery of crude oil and is expected to be the second largest segment over the forecast period (2016-2023) owing to more efficient oil recovery coupled with various government initiatives regarding disposal of green house gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) generated by various industries and power plants.

The chemical injection method uses polymers, surfactant, alkali, and microbial for the crude oil recovery and can be used for both sandstone and carbonate formations. Increasing number of matured reserves expected to fuel the demand for enhanced oil recovery techniques over the forecast period (2016-2023).

On the basis of geography, the global enhanced oil recovery market is segmented into following categories,

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Rest of Latin America
  • Europe
    • Germany
    • France
    • U.K.

Oil & gas industry has witness slowdown in recent past due to supply surpassing the demand resulted in decline of oil price which in turn adversely affected the profit margins of oil producers. Growing oil demand and increasing number of matured reservoirs has influenced the oil producer to adopt technologies such as enhanced oil recovery. Increasing adoption of enhanced oil recovery techniques are expected to witness the robust growth till 2023. The global enhanced oil recovery market is segment on the basis of geography. North America contributed the highest revenue share in global enhanced oil recovery market with a contribution which is estimated to be more than 25% by end of 2016. Followed by it, MEA stood at second position in the same year. Increasing number of matured reserves and rising government interest in order to promote use of gas injection technology especially carbon dioxide (CO2) due water scarcity in the region is projected to intensify the significant growth of the region over the forecast period. Europe is expected to be the fastest growing segment as major economies in the region as looking to obtain sufficiency by increasing oil production using technologies such as enhanced oil recovery. Such factors are expected to spur the growth of enhanced oil recovery market over the forecast period (2016-2023).
