Shale Gas: Products & ServicesReport SummaryUS shale gas development to reach $50 billion by 2015Demand for products and services used in US shale gas development willgrow to nearly $50 billion in 2015 as industry activity continues to escalatein the emerging Marcellus, Haynesville and Fayetteville shale plays. Whileshale gas drilling will slow from the rapid buildup of the 2005-2010 period,the industry will still bring more than 8,000 new producing wells onlinethrough 2015. Increasing demand for drilling and completion products andservices for new shale gas wells will be accompanied by growing marketsfor workover, restimulation, and well site reclamation services in areaswhere production is maturing.Low natural gas prices since 2008 have narrowed the profit margin ofshale gas investment. Shale gas producers are responding to this trend byseeking improvements in well economics, in many cases through the use ofhighervalue products and services. Through the forecast period, shale gasproducers will continue to embrace innovations such as multiple-welldrilling pad systems and advanced hydraulic fracturing materials in orderto improve drilling efficiencies and increase per-well gas output, thusbolstering profitability as gas prices remain below 2008 highs.Tubular goods, drilling fluids and proppants to lead gainsDemand for drilling equipment and consumables in the shale gas plays willgrow to more than $6.8 billion in 2015, led by nearly double-digit growthin tubular goods, the largest equipment category. Shale operators willcontinue to consume more tubular goods overall and on a per-well basis.Growth in demand for chemicals and materials will slightly outpace thatseen for drilling equipment and consumables, reflecting the intensivematerial demands of the wells that will be drilled in the newer shale plays.Stimulation products, especially proppants, used in hydraulic fracturingwill be the dominant source of chemicals and materials demand.Browse All Energy and Power Market Research ReportsRobust growth in service revenues to continueThe market for services used by shale gas producers will reach more than$38 billion in 2015. Demand for services will continue to be dominated bycontract drilling and pressure pumping, which together account for morethan 60 percent of the total market. Service providers will continue tobenefit from high levels of shale gas drilling activity as well as theincreased scale and sophistication of wells in the emerging plays, despitethese trends slowing from the 2005-2010 period. Other segments such ascompletion and production services and waste management andremediation services will be promoted by a range of factors. This willinclude increased workover and restimulation activity as well as new stateand federal laws requiring additional environmental services at well sites.
Marcellus, Haynesville to generate most new demandRegional variations in the shale gas market are strong due to geographicaldifferences in recoverable reserves and the different stages of industrydevelopment in the major plays. The Southern Region dominated productsand services demand in 2010 and will retain half of the total marketthrough the forecast period, even as the Midwestern Region registersfaster annual gains based on activity in the Marcellus, Woodford and anumber of other emerging shale plays. Through 2020, the Marcellus Shalewill be the fastest growing market for products and services of the majorplays.Table of ContentsINTRODUCTIONI. EXECUTIVE SUMMARYII.
