The maturing oil and gas fields are one of the major reasons for the well abandonment services market growth. The production of crude oil or natural gas from several wells is declining considerably as the wells reach the end of their economic life. This is resulting in abandonment of oil and gas fields as the decline in oil or gas production and low revenue generation has made the oil or gas well a liability for the companies. The number of maturing oil and gas facilities, including platforms, subsea wells, and other related assets, is increasing at a steady rate. Hence, the increase in the number of aging oilfields is likely to increase well-decommissioning activities, which will drive the growth of the global well abandonment services market during the forecast period.

As per Technavio, the emergence of rigless well abandonment techniques will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.
Well Abandonment Services Market: Emergence of Rigless Well Abandonment Techniques
With the increase in restrictive regulations and the rising associated cost of operating aging platforms, the focus of operators on offshore decommissioning is increasing at a significant rate. Although there are three different ways to implement well abandonment, offshore oil and gas wells are mostly abandoned using a rig to pull the tubing and remove the casing. The rig can be used to cut and pull casing, set retainers or packers, and drill out retainers. However, the cost of rig-based abandonment operations is high owing to the high rental cost of equipment. As a result, contractors have introduced the rigless approach for well abandonment to reduce operational costs and increase operational efficiency. The method complies with most well abandonment requirements with minimum footprint and quick project delivery. Thus, the demand for rigless well abandonment techniques will be high during the forecast period.
“Apart from the emergence of rigless well abandonment techniques, other factors such as advances in post-abandonment monitoring systems and use of single lift in decommissioning, and conversion of decommissioned oil and gas platforms to offshore wind farms will have a positive impact on the growth of the well abandonment services market during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
