Well Intervention Market - Overview
A well intervention or well work is any operation carried out on an oil or gas well during or at the end of its productive life. The intervention alters the state of the well or well geometry, provides well diagnostics, and manages the production of the well. It enables safe entry into a well with well control in order to carry out numerous tasks other than drilling. The history of well intervention dates back to the 1800s, when the technology was first developed to afford re-entry into wells as an alternative to drilling well control systems and rigs for delivery of non-drilling services.
Demand for well intervention services in offshore areas has been increasing due to rise in demand for crude oil and fuel, increase in preventive steps taken for aging wells, rise in the number of drill rigs, and decrease in productivity of various gas and oil wells.
Globally, more than 1,800 onshore rigs were estimated to exist in 2017. However, the number of offshore rigs was about 500 in 2017. Demand for well intervention services in offshore oil & gas wells is expected to rise at a higher pace during the forecast period as compared to that in onshore oil & gas wells. This is attributed to new discoveries in offshore area and rise in investments in exploration and production activities in the offshore oil & gas industry.
