ReportsnReports – Shale Processing Equipment and Component Manufacturing Markets Worldwide

  1. 1. Shale Processing Equipment and Component Manufacturing Markets adds SBI Market Research Report “Shale Processing Equipment andComponent Manufacturing Markets Worldwide ’’ to its store.Countries covered: GlobalNatural gas from shale (shale gas) is the fastest growing source of gas in the United Statesand Canada. In the United States, shale gas production increased at an annual rate of 48%in recent years (2006-2010). In 2010, 23% of all gas produced in the United Statedoriginated from shale deposits.Industry analysts project that the growing trend in shale gas production is very likely tocontinue and by 2020 shale gas production may even reach 12.6 Tcf per annum.The significant resources of shale gas and the increasing production in North America willallow the United States and Canada to feed their nationwide hunger for natural gas.Rapidly developing shale gas production will require additional processing capacity. Gasprocessing is necessary to transform raw gas into a pipeline quality product that can betransported to marketers and end-users. An extra layer of infrastructure is required to treatand transport natural gas liquids in addition to dry gas.Inadequate processing equipment could lead to price instability, a slow-down of economicgrowth and a reduction in the delivery of natural gas to end-users.Shale gas producers and midstream operators have recognized this opportunity and severalgas processing facilities have mushroomed in shale plays areas. Numerous new projectshave been announced for the upcoming years. But the potential for shale gas processingequipment and the components market is much greater.To keep up with the growing shale gas production, over 10 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d)of additional processing capacity is necessary by 2015 in the shale plays regions. Theestimated capital cost for investments in gas processing infrastructure is about $8.5 billionin 2010 dollars.By 2020, gas processing capacity requirements will increase to over 18 Bcf/d. In total, theindustry investments in gas processing facilities are estimated at $14.7 billion in 2010dollars for the 2011- 2020 period. A significant percentage of that sum will be investeddirectly in gas processing equipment and components.
  2. 2. This Report contains comprehensive data on the gas processing equipment and componentsmarket including historical data (2006-2010) and 2011-2020 forecast for the market size interms of dollars invested in new infrastructure and in gas processing equipment alone. Thestudy identifies the key trends affecting the marketplace, while profiling majormanufacturers and product end-users (gas processing operators).Report MethodologyThe information in Shale Processing Equipment and Components Manufacturing MarketWorldwide is based on primary and secondary research.The primary research involved collecting information from companies participating in themarket and analysts for the natural gas industry to recognize to main factors influencing themarket, its major challenges and opportunities.

According to a report by energy research publisher SBIEnergy, shale gas production in the U.S. increased at an annual rate of 48% from 2006-2010, reaching 4.8Tcf and representing 23% of the total U.S. natural gas production.
  4. 4. After several prudent years due to uncertainty regarding reserve estimates and production-related risks, shale gas processing assets are now regarded as an attractive form ofinvestment. An increase in gas and natural gas liquid products from these shale plays overrecent years has led to billions of dollars worth of investments in gas processinginfrastructure.“Investments in shale gas from the midstream sector reached over $7.7 billion in shale gasprocessing infrastructure, including $3.8 billion plus spent on equipment and componentsalone in 2010,” noted Shelly Carr, Publisher of SBI Energy. “This market is being driven bya growing demand for natural gas.”The current market for shale gas processing equipment and components is limited to theNorth American continent, specifically in the United States and Canada. While the has grown exponentially over the past five years, production increases are alsooccurring in Canada, where unconventional gas accounted for 25% of the country’s naturalgas production in 2010.“Since technological advancements have made shale gas production economically viable, allmajor natural gas producers in North America have turned their attention to shale plays,”added Carr.This report contains comprehensive data on the gas processing equipment and componentsmarket, as well as segment forecasts through 2020. It also analyzes key trends and profilesmajor manufacturers and product end-users.Latest Market Research Reports: Children’s Publishing Market Forecast 2012 Chinese and Taiwanese Markets for Spinal Implants, MIS and VCF 2011 Asia-Pacific Markets for Spinal Implants and VCF 2011 (Australia, Japan and South Korea) U.S. Market for Dental Prosthetics and CAD/CAM Devices 2011 2012 Biomet Company Profile & Analysis: Biologics Division Health and Wellness in Norway Europe Infrastructure : Bundle The Definitive Analysis of Broadband Wireless Networks: WiMax, WiFi, LTE, and 4G InfrastructureAbout Us:ReportsnReports is an online library of over 75,000 market research reports and in-depthmarket research studies & analysis of over 5000 micro markets.
