China gas drilling market: $272.5 billion industry by 2018

Press Release   •   Aug 20, 2013 16:20 BST

The China gas drilling market and oil drilling industry has been developing steadily through 2013. Greater investment by the industry, a favorable regulatory environment and rising international crude oil prices drove revenue growth of 6.5% annually over the past five years. In 2013, industry revenue is expected to grow 5.3% to $221.3 billion.

There are three major participants in the Oil and Gas Drilling industry: China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) and China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec). Together, they are set to contribute 97.0% of industry revenue in 2013.

Over the five years, the crude oil mining segment of this industry is forecast to grow steadily, but the natural gas segment will grow significantly faster. Crude oil mining is well established in China and there is little chance for a new major development.
