Wireline Logging Services Market Size

Wireline Logging Services Market size surpassed USD 14 billion in 2014 and is anticipated to witness growth of over 6% from 2015 to 2022.

Wireline logging services market will witness growth on account of surging investments toward exploration of geothermal, mineral and oil & gas resources. Nuclear magnetic resonance, logging while drilling (LWD), gamma ray and measurement while drilling (MWD) are some of the key leading techniques used across the industry. In addition, steady oil demand along with soaring investments toward the development of energy infrastructure will further boost product deployment over the forecast timeline.

Wireline Logging Services Market

Growing demand for real time logging, with increasing potential of recoverable resources and rising energy applications will influence the technology growth. In addition, ongoing technological advancements and evolving industry standards will further augment the business outlook. Moreover, the rising production activities coupled with declining profit margin across the oil field services will fuel the wireline logging services market adoption.

Increasing investments to stimulate deep and ultra-deep drilling activities will significantly drive the industry outlook. Recent advancements across wireline logging and logging-while drilling technology have substantially enhanced the industry’s capability to place wells in the reservoir, assess adjacent formations, and comprehend targeted reservoirs.

Wireline Logging Services Market Analysis

Escalating demand for well intervention along with ongoing developments in monitoring and evaluation will enhance the cased hole wire logging service industry. Cased-hole wireline logging service comprise of procurement of logging measurements by the means of metal piping or well chasing during the completion of operations.

The open-hole services market is set to witness growth over 7% by 2022. In contrast with cased hole services, in open hole the operations are performed on the well before the wellbore is cemented. Ability to withstand at high temperature & pressure across ultra-deep-water levels are few indispensable parameters that will raise the product adoption over the forecast period.

E-line technology segment is anticipated to witness growth on account of their ability to continuously transmit logging data to the surface. The technology utilizes a steel armored electric cable and varies as per number of electrical conductors and strength of the wireline. In addition, the ability of this technology to capture real time data from reservoir monitoring, tubing inspections and cement bond logs to offer better depth control will further proliferate the wireline logging services market landscape.

Slickline service industry will witness gains on account its ability to offer cost savings coupled with provision of a greater degree of control & safer operation. The technology includes control of sliding sleeves for closing & opening the access to zones in combination with replacement of gas lift valves. In addition, measurement of temperature, depth of the well, down-hole pressures and well perforation are some of key underlying characteristics demonstrated by slickline technology which will create a favorable business scenario.

China Wireline Logging Services Industry By Technology

Europe is set to witness gains on account of escalating energy demand along with ongoing initiatives aimed toward the re-development of wells located across mature oil fields. Increasing exploration & production activities across shale reservoirs coupled with rising commercial viability of offshore drilling at multiple depths will enhance the industry outlook. In addition, growing demand for accurate estimation of hydrocarbon volumes will further stimulate product adoption over the forecast timeframe. For instance, in 2012, Statoil awarded a four-year contract to Schlumberger for the provision of wireline logging services across the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). As per the contract, Schlumberger will provide multiple services including perforation, open-hole logging and cased-hole logging and would apply to all of Statoil’s E&P licenses on the NCS.

The North America wireline logging services market will witness gains owing to increasing oil & gas exploration activities across Gulf of Mexico in the U.S. Increasing investments toward the adoption of advanced technologies to raise the efficiency & productivity coupled with shifting trends toward the implementation of digital services to optimize the business processes will enhance the industry landscape. In addition, growing number of onshore & offshore wells along with rising penetration of shale gas will further proliferate the business growth.

Wireline Logging Services Market Size

Notable players operating across the market include:

  • Halliburton
  • Weatherford International
  • Schlumberger
  • Baker Hughes 
  • OilSERV
  • Pioneer Energy Services
