Global Offshore Decommissioning of Oil and gas Installations Market is Expected to Increase at a CAGR of 20.4% from 2015 to 2020

The major trends driving the Oil and gas decommissioning market are ageing oil reserves and abandoned wells. North America is the leading market for Decommissioning, with USA being major market in the region because of its maturing oil reserves in its Gulf of Mexico region. European market is expected to see a rapid growth rate; especially due to the decommissioning projects in North Sea area.

In the past two years, flat oil prices and rising costs have contributed to declining cash flow for this group of companies. Continued declines in cash flow, particularly in the face of rising debt levels, could challenge future not only the exploration and development but also the decommissioning operations. However, the decommissioning process remains mandatory, as the abandoned structures and wells can be damaged in a hurricane and cause an environmental disaster. Also, the platforms and wells cost more to decommission once damaged.
