Oil and Gas Industry Overview
After a rapid decline, stabilization is a good sign
The influence of the oil and gas industry on different aspects of daily life is enormous. During 2013-2017 major environmental disasters such as the ‘Deepwater Horizon Gulf Of Mexico Oil Spill’ in 2013 brought a negative spotlight on the oil and gas industry . The drop in the oil price in 2015 also negatively impacted all oil-dependent economies in the world, especially Russian Federation bringing a financial crisis to the nation with the rapid collapse of its currency. The share of the world oil and gas industry revenue in the gross-world product (GWP) during this period decreased from 12% in 2014 to 6% in 2017, but the forecast for this market is promising. The Business Research Company expects the oil and gas market to account for 8.4% of the GWP by 2022.
The oil and gas market consists of sales of oil and gas by entities (organizations, sole traders or partnerships) that undertake the exploration, extraction, drilling, refining, and/or transportation of oil and gas.
