“The well intervention segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021”
Based on type of wireline services, the well intervention segment is estimated to be the fastest growing market from 2016 to 2021. Well intervention is carried out on an oil or gas well to extend its productivity and providing access to stranded or additional hydrocarbon reserves. Oilfield operators are focusing more on improving production from current wells, than investing in green-field operations. This has led to high growth for wireline in well intervention services than for logging and completion services.
