  8. 8. Page 146www.visiongain.com Chemicals For Unconventional Oil & Gas Development Market Forecast 2014-2024: Fracturing Fluid Additives for Shale Gas, Shale (Tight) Oil, Tight Gas & CBM 2014 2019 2024 Visiongain forecasts that expenditure on chemicals for unconventional oil and gas development in the Rest of Americas region will grow rapidly over the forecast period from a very low start point of $36.6m in 2014. The market grows at a CAGR of 35.3% between 2014 and 2019 and 25.7% between 2019 and 2024 (overall CAGR for 2014-2024 is 30.4%). Constitutional reform in Mexico, along with primary energy shortages in other nations across the Americas, drive investment in unconventional sources and enable the market share to expand from 0.6% in 2014 to 1.6% by 2019 and 4.5% by 2024. Expenditure is forecast to be $165.7m by 2019 and $519.7m by 2024. In addition to the below markets of Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico, it is worth noting that Venezuela is exploring for tight gas in the Lago de Maracaibo basin in a joint venture between PDVSA and Petrowayuu; prospectiveness currently remains unclear. 5.1.4.1 Brazilian Market Outlook for Chemicals Used in Unconventional Oil and Gas Development Tight gas resources are the most likely to require hydraulic fracturing in Brazil during the forecast period. Tenders for shale blocks were received in December 2013 by a range of companies, but the prospectiveness within the next 10 years remains unclear. Shell, Petra Energia SA and Imetame Energia are developing tight gas in Brazil from the Sao Francisco play. 12 of 14 pilot production wells it drilled over the past few years have yielded 0.6% 1.6% 4.5% Source: Visiongain 2014 Figure 5.32 Market Share Forecast 2014, 2019, 2024 (%) for Expenditure on Chemicals for Unconventional Oil and Gas Development in the Rest of the Americas

Supply chain orientation and the availability of equipment are central to the difficulty. This is why the MOU with Halliburton will be encouraging for investors in San Leon. San Leon is looking to commercialise its tight gas sandstone assets in Poland, which are estimated at 422bcf. A commercialisation of three current exploratory developments – to bring 12bcf online at a commercially viable rate – is presently being planned. Given ExxonMobil’s withdrawal from Poland in 2012 and the movement toward hub pricing, a reduction in CAPEX and OPEX per well must be achieved by the company before any programme conducted independently of other companies can take place. The MOU with Halliburton is a step toward such a programme because it will enable access to wholesale prices for product such as proppant, which can represent approximately 10% of the well cost – depending on type and proppant mix. Well costs must be reduced and supply chains established before the tight gas industry establishes itself in Poland. Otherwise, EURs on each well must be pushing 9.0bcf in order to justify drilling and completion costs of in excess of $13.0m. Other active companies in Polish tight gas include FX Energy. 5.3.3 UK Prospects for Chemical Sales to the Unconventional Oil & Gas Industry There is the potential for the UK to contribute to chemicals sales via the hydraulic fracturing of CBM and shale gas resources. Neither unconventional resource has achieved a commercial level of production, with Dart Energy’s CBM development in Airth, Scotland, appearing to be the most prospective for commerciality. It announced in January 2013 that it had operated a pilot production well successfully and continuously on a controlled basis for three months. Peak rates for the well were 800,000 cubic feet per day. The UK government is demonstrating a determination to assist shale gas development with a range of tax incentives. This political will is important for the likes of Cuadrilla Resources, who have claimed that approximately 200tcf of gas is in place in its Bowland license area. Total S.A. was the first IOC to enter the shale gas arena in the UK in January 2014, buying into exploration licenses and offering capital for a drilling carry. The big number in terms of shale gas potential – being reported at the beginning of 2014 – is that there is potential gas in place of 1,300 trillion cubic metres.

Barriers to Entry Analysis for Chemicals Used for Unconventional Oil & Gas Development (Fracturing Fluid Additives) Figure 6.1 above visualises the barriers to entry experienced by companies wishing to sell chemicals for use in unconventional oil and gas development by each regional/national market forecast within this chapter against the CAGR that they will experience. The size of the bubble represents relative market size. The easiest place to market chemicals is the US because of its highly developed distribution network and mature hydraulic fracturing industry. However, lower prices and an established industry also benefits China and place a downward pressure on aggregate chemicals pricing within that market space. In Argentina, however, the regulatory environment is likely to further slow development. Anti-dumping legislation in many countries, but mostly notably the US and Europe, does act as a barrier to production in countries such as China seeking to undercut pricing levels of domestic manufacturers of certain chemicals. On the other hand, intellectual property issues and difficult to comprehend frameworks of engagement make sales of chemicals by external producers into China – in addition to the barrier of the very low cost chemicals industry within the nation – even more difficult. -10.0 0.0 10.0 20.0 30.0 40.0 50.0 BarrierstoEntry CAGR % Low High US RoW Canada China Argentina Rest of Asia Europe Russia Rest of Americas Figure 6.1 Barriers to Entry vs. National Market Size vs. CAGR% 2014-2024 ($m, CAGR%) Source: Visiongain 2014
