Russia Oil and Gas Services and Mechanical Engineering Market Report 2019 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Services and Mechanical Engineering for Oil and Gas: Are Industry's Foundations Secure?" report has been added to's offering.

The condition of service companies causes serious concern in the industry. A good deal of work depends on them, so in this respect, their comparison with the foundations of the oil and gas building will not be an exaggeration.

The question is how secure they are today. It is not only because of Western sanctions and dependence on foreign technology, even though this subject also needs special consideration. What is most intriguing is, after all, the main direction the Russian oilfield services industry will take.

The industry is at a crossroads and even vertically-integrated oil companies differ in their approaches.

The primary direction for major oil corporations was seen in disposing of service assets in the 1990s. Now, however, there are advocates of a complete about-turn.

Rosneft has been buying up service companies for several years now, aggressively. Concentration is on the rise in the sector. But Lukoil and Gazprom Neft believe that this destroys the market. Such an approach may lead to monopolisation and thus, eventually, to decline in the quality of services and growth in their price.

What line will prevail? It is the question we will think over in our report where you will find detailed coverage of the following subjects:

  • Structure and key financial indicators of the oilfield services market
    • Fastest growing market segments and biggest problems
    • Growth in horizontal drilling and collapse in seismic surveys and geophysics
    • Main structural transformations of the market and their causes
  • Key industry players by leading segments
    • Development and exploratory drilling
    • Vertical and horizontal drilling
    • Enhanced recovery, including hydraulic fracturing
    • Well intervention and workover
    • Geophysics and seismic surveys
  • Non-residents in the sector
    • The question arose after 2014 if foreigners were going to leave the Russian oilfield services market.
    • The government adopted urgent plans for import substitution; critical technology lists were approved. The situation has come to be a paradox in its own way: the plans for import substitution in the oilfield services industry have basically failed, but then non-residents are totally in no hurry to leave the market and even attempt to increase their presence.
    • Besides, the presence of Chinese companies is more and more noticeable in the sector, especially as suppliers of oil and gas equipment.
  • The destiny of independent players
    • Hardships of survival under pressure from vertically-integrated oil companies, Western giants, and Chinese suppliers
    • Government regulation of the oilfield services industry
    • Ideas to create a national service company
    • The destiny of Rosgeologia; special investment contracts; and unsuccessful attempts to support independents
    • Main innovations in legislative regulation of the sector
  • Medium-term forecast of developments
