Zonal Isolation Market size worth $31.18bn by 2024

Zonal Isolation Market size is expected to reach USD 31.18 billion by 2024, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

Operators use cementing technique to deliver isolation method throughout the life cycle of a well. In the past few years, several chemical and mechanical techniques have been developed to prevent the cross flow of gas, water, or oil between unlike formations.

Global zonal isolation market size is further segregated on application basis as offshore and onshore. Offshore applications accounted for over 66% of global revenue in 2015 owing to increasing offshore projects across the region Chemical technologies accounted for more than 59% of global zonal isolation market share in 2015 due to is wide applications in offshore drilling.

Mechanical technology comprises the practice of mechanical equipment such as packers, plugs, sliding sleeves, and slotted/perforated liners. Chemical on the contrary, involves the practice of monomer systems, polymer gels, elastomers, and biopolymers.

Multiple technologies including remedial and primary cementing are employed by well operators for isolating a specific zone during well intervention and completion. The employment of technology depends on several parameters, which include type of producing zone (oil/gas), wellbore geometry, depth of well, and wellbore temperature.

Zonal isolation method is considered critical for evolving unconventional resources owing to high initial investment. It is essential to anticipate flow rates successfully to implement and design, multistage hydraulic fracturing is low in permeable shale gas reservoirs.

Cost incurred for isolating particular zone is 2.5% to 5% of total well completion cost. The shift of exploration activities from offshore to onshore areas coupled with the increasing focus towards the development of unconventional reserves will drive the zonal isolation market during the forecast period.
