Growing Need for Optimized and Cost-effective Operations across Petrochemicals Industry Spurs Demand for Oil and Gas Analytics

The prices of crude oil have been declining since mid-2014 and so have those of natural gas over the past few years. This trend of declining rates is expected to continue through 2024, states a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR). Declining costs of crude oil and natural gas have reduced the profit margins of exploration and production companies in the oil and gas industry. Similarly, other companies involved in the upstream, midstream, and downstream operations of the oil and gas industry are also experiencing a considerable decrease in their profit margins.

In order to optimize their operations and reduce operating costs, the oil and gas industries have started making use of oil and gas analytics services. The oil and gas analytics services aid companies operating in this sector to improve production, minimize operating costs, and enhance their profits. According to TMR, the oil and gas analytics market in North America is expected to rise from US$3,116 mn in 2015 to US$16,536.8 mn by 2024, expanding at a 19.5% CAGR from 2016 to 2024.

Q. What are the challenges faced by the global oil and gas analytics market?

Data integration is a key obstruction with regard to data quality and the ability to analyze data. Analysts and managers manage analytics by a particular department or function, which inhibits an integrated approach for end-to-end workflow. Lack of data governance and data ownership create further issues relating to data format, accessibility, and completeness in oil and gas analytics. Data disconnect between what is collected and its relevance in the oil and gas business is another factor posing a challenge. Thus, poor quality of data and lack of data integration are expected to hamper the growth of oil and gas analytics market.

Q. What are key strategies adopted by players in the market?
