The Global Oil and Gas Upstream Market was valued at USD xx trillion in 2017 and is fore-casted to reach USD xx trillion by 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period (2018-2025).
The upstream oil and gas market is also called Exploration and Production (E&P) sector. Up-stream oil & gas market encompasses activities related to searching for, recovering and producing crude oil and.
The upstream market consists of public as well as pri-vate companies. Companies who operate only in the upstream segment are called ‘Inde-pendents.' Companies which work in all three segments are called integrated oil companies (IOCs). Upstream Industry is heavily dependent on oilfield services.
Although demand for oil & gas is increasing steadily, Global oil reserves have not increased in recent years.
Declining investments in Oil and gas explorations will further effect the growth in the mar-ket over the forecast period to 2025. Increasing environmental concerns will impact the in-dustry in the long term. After 2016 Paris agreement, World Bank announced it would no longer finance upstream oil & gas after 2019. The upstream market is highly regulated and impacted by global politics.
Neither Nuclear nor solar or wind has made oil & gas unnecessary. So only oil & gas price fluctuations in the global market are what matters.

Global Upstream oil & gas market can be segmented by Resource type, by production site and by drilling technology.
By resource type, the market can be segmented into crude oil & natural gas. Although crude oil reserve often contains some natural gas in it. There are reserves for natural gas also.
Based on the production site, the market can be segmented into onshore & offshore. On-shore upstream oil market segment is accounted for the largest share globally, due to in-creased investments in the onshore oil explorations.
Global Distribution of onshore and offshore crude oil production sites 2005 to 2015 (in units)
Year Onshore Offshore
2005 68 32
2010 69 31
2015 71 29
Based on drilling technology, upstream oil & gas market can be segmented into Conven-tional & Unconventional drilling. Conventional technology includes traditional vertical drill-ing technology. Although it is cheaper than non- conventional, it has limitations. Unconven-tional drilling technology comprises horizontal drilling, multilateral drilling, extended reach drilling and complex path drilling.
Unconventional drilling technologies are becoming less expensive over time. Horizontal drilling has gained popularity due to shale oil production. A horizontal well is generally more expensive to drill than a vertical well, but it produces more crude oil and natural gas. In 2016, hydraulically fractured horizontal wells accounted for 69% of all oil and natural gas wells drilled in the United States. Horizontal drilling is used for drilling in harsher conditions.
Based on region, the market can be segmented into the Middle East, North America, Europe & CIS, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Central and South America.
North America is the leading region in the upstream oil and gas market is mainly due to higher capital expenditures in North America and investment in shale oil production using unconventional drilling technologies. Middle East and African Oil & gas upstream market is declined mainly due to the price drop in oil products globally.
A good number of prominent companies are government owned. Major players in the up-stream oil & gas market are Saudi Aramco, Gazprom, ExxonMobil, Rosneft, PetroChina, BP, Sinopec, Royal Dutch Shell, Total S.A, and Chevron.
Some of the Independent energy & power companies, are Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc, Laredo Pe-troleum, Newfield Exploration, Matador Resources, and Devon Energy.
In the extended downturn from 2014 to 2017, upstream companies have reduced costs. If unconventional drilling technologies get cheaper, the influence of Gulf countries on oil pro-duction might diminish in the coming years.
