Global Enhanced Oil Recovery Market to Grow at 7% During 2024-2032, Spurred by Increasing Number of Aged Oil Wells

December 22, 2021 | Energy & Mining

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Enhanced Oil Recovery Market Report by Technology (Thermal-Enhanced Oil Recovery, Gas-Enhanced Oil Recovery, Chemical-Enhanced Oil Recovery, and Others), Application (Onshore, Offshore), and Region 2024-2032," the global enhanced oil recovery market reached a value of US$ 59.1 Billion in 2023. Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is the process of extracting oil from wells that have already undergone primary and secondary oil recovery stages. It is increasingly employed to enhance the ability of oil to flow to a well by changing the physical properties of the oil or by the additional usage of water, chemicals or gases. Also known as the tertiary recovery phase, it aids in extracting the oil that is usually left behind after primary and secondary production phases by increasing its pressure and minimizing its viscosity. Some of the most commonly used EOR techniques include thermal, chemical and miscible methods that improve the oil displacement and volumetric sweep efficiencies of the entire process.

Global Enhanced Oil Recovery Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for enhanced oil production. An increase in the number of aged wells and the diminishing oil production from existing oilfields have led to the rising demand for EOR across the globe since its deployment results in significantly improving the overall output as compared to conventional oil extraction methods. The deployment of EOR technologies also assists in improving the permeability of the mature oil reservoirs by enabling the hydrocarbons to flow through the pathways easily, thereby enhancing oil recovery rates. The market is further driven by the numerous initiatives undertaken by the government of several countries to integrate EOR with advanced technologies in an attempt to further improve the oil yield. They are also providing attractive incentives to encourage various multinational companies to invest in EOR and set-up collaborative research projects, which, in turn, is expected to create a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include continual research and development (R&D) for advancements in EOR technologies and the growing adoption of carbon dioxide EOR technology. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7% during 2024-2032.
