The USA was the largest country in the market in 2017, accounting for nearly 20% market share.
Crude oil and natural gas extraction companies around the world are investing heavily in digital oilfield technology to enhance crude oil and natural gas production. Digital oil fields integrate advanced software, hardware, and data analysis techniques to collect real-time data from the oilfield. They consist of visualization, product surveillance, integrated decision making, and remote communication systems. Digital technologies in oil fields include high-performance drill bits, advanced electrical submersible pumps, and 3D seismic imaging and reservoir modelling. Oilfields digitization facilitates efficient utilization of human resources and thus optimizes the profitability of oil production.
The crude oil and natural gas market is segmented into Crude Oil Extraction and Natural Gas Extraction.
Crude Oil Extraction industry includes companies carrying out exploration, development and production of petroleum and natural gas by using pumping technologies and systems.
Natural Gas Extraction includes companies extracting liquid hydrocarbons from crude oil and natural gas field gases. These companies are also involved in sulfur recovery from natural gas.
