Within Africa, countries such as Nigeria and Angola are the most advanced countries where effective drilling waste management practices are implemented. Increasing offshore activities in the region will drive the waste services industry growth at a CAGR of 13.0% between 2013 and 2018, to reach $477 million by 2018.
Browse through the market data tables and figures and detailed ToC on the “Africa Drilling Waste Management Market”.
The oil and gas drilling process generates two primary types of wastes, namely drill cuttings and used drilling fluids. Most of the wastes associated with oil and gas drilling activities can cause significant hazards to the environment. Hence, these wastes need to be effectively treated and disposed off in order to minimize the impact to the environment. Universally, countries have employed various regulatory measures to tackle this challenge. The waste management hierarchy lays out a preferred methodology of waste management options. Source reduction is the first and most favored option.
Recycling is the second preferred option in the waste management hierarchy. Treatment and disposal, which are at the bottom of the hierarchy, are the least preferred options in waste management. The coiled tubing (CT) industry is one of the fastest-growing segments within the oilfield services sector. Advancement in technology and increasing applications of CT services in field operations drives this industry’s growth. Also, the usage of CT eliminates the need for workover rigs for intervention applications, reducing the associated costs that have enabled the industry find markets across the region. The coiled tubing is currently a multi-billion dollar market and is well established in terms of its applications.
