Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODU) Market 2018: Emerging Drilling Technology Innovations, Favorable Government support, Process Revolution Contributing to the Industry Growth

The mobile offshore drilling units (MODU) market is highly cyclical and goes through periods of strength and growth followed by periods of economic weakness.

Dallas, United States - April 17, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Orbis Research has announced the addition of the "Global Mobile Offshore Drilling Units Market - Segmented by Type, Depth, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)” report to their offering.

The crude price started to increase after mid-2016 and the offshore oil & gas industry started to stabilize with less decline in offshore rig count, as compared to that in 2014 and 2015, and hence, similar trend in demand for mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs).

The number of MODU purchased increased in 2017, both in terms of transaction and value. Crude oil price crossed USD 60 per barrel mark in November 2017. Opening of coastal water in the United States for exploration and production, and recovery of Brazil oil & gas industry, along with increasing crude oil price, are expected to increase the demand for MODUs during the forecast period.

Golden Triangle - One of the Largest Markets for MODU

The deepwater drilling market is expected to rebound in the near future due to increased activity in the Golden Triangle – Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, and West Africa. Chevron’s Ballymore and Shell’s giant Whale discovery in the Gulf of Mexico represents the sign of regional deepwater revival after a long time, without any major discovery. The discovery of Egypt’s mammoth offshore natural gas field “Zohr” is expected to increase the demand for mobile offshore drilling units. Several large offshore drilling projects countries such as Mozambique and Nigeria are further expected to drive the MODU market.

Recovery in Brazilian Offshore Industry - Driving the Market

Brazilian offshore oil & gas industry has been on a setback due to lack of investment in the past few years. The new conservative government in the country has introduced several reforms such as ending Petrobras’ monopoly over the countries prolific hydrocarbon resources and has opened the hydrocarbon reserves to foreign companies. Several foreign companies like ExxonMobil, CNOOC, Repsol, etc. have already acquired stakes in both post-salt and pre-salt blocks, and are likely to start exploration in the near future. Around 14 deepwater projects are expected to come by 2020 in the country. The country is aiming for additional oil production capacity of around 2 MMb/d by 2027, that too mostly from deepwater. As a result, the tender for MODUs, especially drillships in the country, is expected to increase.

Oversupply of Floaters and Jack-up – Restraining the Market

The offshore drilling market is oversupplied with floaters and jack-up rigs. As of August 2017, more than 100 floaters and 200 jack-up rigs were stacked. The new build order book includes approximately 40 floaters and 100 jack-up rigs, majority of which do not have contracts. As a result, the stacked floaters and jack-up rigs are expected to be chosen first, by drilling contractors and then look for new ones.

Key Developments in the Market

January 2018: Keppel Corporation is in discussion with Borr Drilling Limited for the possible sale of six jack-ups for around USD 960 million to Borr Drilling. The jack-up rigs are currently being made by Keppel Corporation’s subsidiary Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited.

October 2017: PPL Shipyard Pte Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine Ltd has signed an agreement for the sale of nine Pacific Class 400 jack-up drilling rigs to Borr Drilling Limited and its subsidiaries.

Japan OKs 1st anti-smoking law, but seen as lax and partial

Jul 19, 2018

TOKYO — Japan on Wednesday approved its first national legislation banning smoking inside of public facilities, but the watered-down measure excludes many restaurants and bars and is seen as toothless. The legislation aims to lower secondhand smoking risks ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics amid international calls for a smoke-free Games. But ruling party lawmakers with strong ties to the tobacco and restaurant industries opted for a weakened version. The upper house approved and enacted the bill into law Wednesday after it was approved earlier by the lower house. Last month, Tokyo separately enacted a stricter ordinance banning smoking at...

Statelessness a hurdle for some boys rescued from Thai cave

Jul 19, 2018

MAE SAI, Thailand — The 12 boys and coach of the Wild Boars soccer team who were rescued from a cave in Thailand last week share a characteristic with many of the professional European clubs its youthful members idolize: They are a multiethnic, cross-border crew. But while the stars of the major European leagues, no matter what their origins, can stake a claim to fame and fortune, some of the Wild Boars cannot even count on a permanent home. Three of the players — Mongkol "Mark" Boonpium, 13, Adul Samon, 14, and Pornchai "Tee" Khamluang, 16 — and 25-year-old assistant...
