China's Oil and Gas Mining Support Services: The Industry to Continue Growing Due to China's Energy Demands

Share Article

Due to the lag between price changes and investment in developing new oil and gas fields, global investment into exploration and development is expected to decrease in the short term. Thus demand for mining support services will be reduced globally during the next a few years. However, the rapidly growing Chinese economy will continue to demand large amounts of energy. This demand will, in part, allow the Support Activities for Oil and Gas Mining industry in China to grow by 5.2% in 2012, according to IBISWorld, America's largest publisher of industry research.

Due to the lag between price changes and investment in developing new oil and gas fields, global investment into exploration and development is expected to decrease in the short term. Thus demand for mining support services will be reduced globally during the next a few years. However, the rapidly growing Chinese economy will continue to demand large amounts of energy. This demand will, in part, allow the Support Activities for Oil and Gas Mining industry in China to grow by 5.2% in 2012, according to IBISWorld, America's largest publisher of industry research.

In 2011, the Support Activities for Oil and Gas Mining industry is expected to generate revenue of US$28.3 billion, up 3.3% from 2010. This is much lower growth than the average level over the five years to 2011, according to IBISWorld.

Both export and import levels in the industry are low. Competing imports are estimated to account for 1.2% of domestic demand while exports are estimated to generate 1.6% of industry revenue. Most oil and gas mining support service companies operate in the domestic market and can generally satisfy domestic demand.

According to IBISWorld, a major feature of the Support Activities for Oil and Gas Mining industry in China is the existing oligopoly among the three state-owned oil companies, China National Petroleum Corporation, China Petrochemical Corporation and China National Offshore Oil Corporation.

Demand for oil and gas mining support services largely depends on investments by oil and gas mining companies in developing new oil or gas fields, or in expanding existing fields. In the next five-year period, industry revenue is expected to increase by an annualized 6.2% to US$38.28 billion in 2016. Competition within the industry is forecast to intensify with rising cost.
