Hydraulic Fracturing Market by Resource & Well Type – GlobalTrends & Forecasts up till 2017Hydraulic fracturing is the propagation of fractures through layers of rock using pressurizedfracturing fluid. This technique is primarily used in the extraction of resources from lowpermeability reservoirs – such as shale gas, tight gas, CBM, and unconventional liquids – whichare difficult to recover through regular drilling procedures. Hydraulic fracturing services areprovided by oilfield service companies (such as Halliburton) to oil and gas companies (such asShell). Hydraulic fracturing was first used in 1947, since then scores of wells have beenfractured.This report estimates the hydraulic fracturing market in terms of volume and value. The volumeof this market is estimated in terms of million hydraulic horse power (million hhp) and value interms of $million. This has been broken down into component regions and further split intocountries.The hydraulic fracturing market is mainly concentrated in North America, where many leadingoil field service companies – Schlumberger (U.S.), Halliburton (U.S.), Baker Hughes (U.S.), andother medium and small players – operate. While the North American hydraulic fracturingmarket is reaching maturity, the Rest of the World’s (ROW) market is still in its infancy.Australia, China, and Poland are expected to lead the ROW hydraulic fracturing market. Apartfrom the regions mentioned above, other areas are not expected to show a very significantmoment in the forecast period of the report i.e. 2012 to 2017. Hydraulic fracturing will provebeneficial for the developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil. As the energy demand inthese countries is increasing, fulfilling this demand domestically will enhance their economicgrowth.Hydraulic Fracturing is facing a lot of public opposition due to potential environmental hazardscaused by fracturing. Water usage, water contamination, and seismic activity are the mostimportant concerns related to hydraulic fracturing. Because of these environmental concerns, thegrowth of hydraulic fracturing market in the Rest of the World market is somewhat lessened. Infact, some companies have even banned the use of hydraulic fracturing. This presents anopportunity to oilfield service companies to use ‘waterless’ hydraulic fracturing or foamfracturing.Foam fracturing has advantageous properties such as high viscosity and low liquid content;foams find application in many petroleum industry processes. This alternative utilizes less waterthan traditional fracturing and could help companies in addressing public concern over theenvironmental effects of fracturing. As a process, fracturing takes up a large percentage of thetotal water required in well drilling, at roughly 89%. This presents a good opportunity for playersto capitalize on.
We have used various secondary sources such as encyclopedia, directories, and databases toidentify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of global hydraulicfracturing market. The primary sources – experts from industry and suppliers have beeninterviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects ofhydraulic fracturing market.We have also profiled leading players of this industry with their recent developments and otherstrategic industry activities.
