Global oil and gas contract activity reports downtrend – GlobalData
The global oil and gas industry has witnessed a significant slowdown in the number of oil and gas contracts and contract value, which is largely attributed to the decline in crude oil prices and reduced demand amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Furthermore, many oil and gas companies are reducing CAPEX/OPEX exposure in this non-conducive market. These negative impacts are dragging the oil and gas equipment and services market further down, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.
The oil and gas industry recoded a contract value of US$13.5bn in Q1 2020, as compared to Q4 2019, which reported US$48.9bn contract value. The number of contracts also witnessed a decline from 1,365 in Q4 2019 to 1,000 in Q1 2020.
Some of the key contracts awarded/secured in this time were Enppi, TechnipFMC and Petrojet’s US$2.5bn contract for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of mazut hydrocracking complex with 2.8mtpa capacity in Assiut, Egypt;
GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Q1 2020 Global Oil & Gas Industry Contracts Review’, states that the upstream sector reported 735 contracts in Q1 2020, followed by the midstream and downstream/petrochemical sectors with 155 and 118 contracts, respectively. North America recorded the majority of the contracts in the quarter, with 347, followed by Europe with 328.
Operation and maintenance (O&M) contracts represented 56% of the total made in Q1 2020, which was followed by contracts with multiple scopes such as construction, design and engineering, installation, O&M and procurement, which accounted for 15%
