Global land drilling rig market to recover following significant declines>Global land drilling rig market to recover following significant declines
The global land drilling rig market is expected to see a recovery from 2017, as commodity prices recover and drilling activity increases. This follows significant declines in drilling activity over the previous eighteen months, a trend expected to continue in 2016, following announcements of further reductions to capital expenditure as operators seek to minimise costs and maximise drilling efficiency in the downturn environment.
However, even with sustained low oil prices, demand for high-HP, high-specification is expected to rise over the forecast period, with the number of rigs drilling rated above 1,250HP forecast to increase at over 10% CAGR 2016-2020. A rise in horizontal drilling in Russia, as well as planned development of unconventional reserves in Saudi Arabia and China, will contribute towards this growth. Onshore field developments in Iran and Kuwait are also expected to result in high demand for high-HP rigs.
Recent technological developments within the market have been driven by the requirement to improve drilling efficiency. Sustained low oil prices have also resulted in an increased trend towards the recycling of components from idle rigs in the North American market. In the downturn environment, contractors are also seeking to capitalise on new, alternative markets, such as the Vaca Muerta region in Argentina, for their high-specification rigs.
Despite the recovery forecast in drilling activity, and the subsequent growth in the land rig market, neither the capable fleet size nor the number of operational rigs or rigs drilling is expected to reach 2014 levels by 2020. Subsequently, while the outlook for the market is relatively positive over the next four years, when compared with the trends seen over the previous eighteen months, it is unlikely to experience the level of activity seen in the pre-downturn environment until well into the 2020s.
