Oil & Gas Risk Management Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Oil and gas market is a complex market and risk management is the most important issues facing it. The market is prone towards a lot of uncertainties and is hence affected by both element risks (operation, construction, financial and revenue generation). Global risks (political, environmental, commercial and legal). These risks encountered both downstream and upstream  need to be adequately addressed as to ensure commercial viability of a particular oil and gas project. The oil and gas business or oil and gas risk management is mainly capital in nature and it operates with a large asset base and in highly risky environments, this is a driver for need of such companies so as to manage their catastrophic risk...

Gas Turbine Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Gas turbines are a type of Internal Combustion (IC) engine in which the hot gases generated due to burning of an air-fuel mixture spin the blades of a turbine to produce power. The combined cycle beginning with conversion of waste heat into steam by heat recovery steam generators and usage of the resultant steam by steam turbine generators to increase power efficiency are the workhouses in the power generation industry. No solitary source is capable of meeting global power requirements; however, gas turbines are increasingly being used in many schemes to achieve better efficiency and reliability in power projects. Jet engines, scale jet engines, auxiliary power units, industrial gas turbines for power generation, radial gas turbines, amateur gas turbines,...

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market Analysis By Application (Residential/Commercial, Chemical, Industrial, Auto Fuel, Refinery), By Source (Refinery, Associated Gas, Nonassociated Gas) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

May 2014

Growing government initiatives mainly in China, India, South Africa and Indonesia to promote the application of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) as a cooking fuel has been one of the major factors driving the global demand for LPG. Coal is a majorly used fuel used for cooking in developing and underdeveloped countries owing to its availability and low price. However, LPG is consider to be a clean cooking fuel when compared with coal and in order to reduce harmful emission caused due ignition of coal, governments of various nations including India are offering LPG cylinders at subsidized rates to the consumers. In addition to increasing usage...

Oil Shale Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Oil shale is a sedimentary rock that contains kerogen, a mixture of organic chemical compounds in solid form which releases hydrocarbons when heated. These hydrocarbons can be used as an alternative for petroleum or natural gas. The oil shale market is expected to witness a high growth in the coming years. Key factors owing to the market’s growth are the rising demand for energy, the depletion of non-renewable energy sources, fluctuating cost of fuel and the cost benefit of using oil shale over conventional energy sources in the long run. However, the high production cost of oil shale, the low carbon content and environmental issues such as disturbance of mined land, global warming, green house gas emission are some factors that could restraint the...

Coal Bed Methane (CBM) Market Analysis By Application (Industrial, Power Generation, Residential, Commercial and Transportation) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

April 2014

Natural gas is one of the fastest growing energy forms and has been gaining market share significantly in the global energy basket. Due to its cleaner existence, natural gas has been rapidly catching up to crude oil as a fuel alternative, with the latter not feasible for producing clean energy. Natural gas is slowly evolving as the primary global fuel with increasing penetration in transportation and domestic application markets. By 2040, natural gas is expected to be on par with crude oil in the global energy landscape. However, depleting conventional natural gas reserves raise questions on its sustainable status, due to which there is...

Tight Gas Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts To 2020

March 2014

arket revenue is expected to reach USD 59.40 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2014 to 2020. Tight gas has a critical role in supply of natural gas in North America mainly in the U.S. Tight gas was the leading unconventional gas contributing to the growing demand for natural gas in the nation, until recent years, when shale gas emerged as a feasible alternative. China is expected to emerge as a leading regional market for tight gas with extensive drilling activities underway for tight gas extraction across the nation. With China estimated to possess significant reserves, global expenditure tight gas R&D, exploration, and commercialization is expected to witness significant surge over the next six years. Advanced...

Shale Gas Market Trends, Analysis And Segment Forecasts To 2020

March 2014

Growing energy demand coupled with depleting conventional gas reserves has led to a shift in focus towards decreasing reliance on conventional natural gas. This shift has been driving the demand for unconventional gases which comprises of shale gas other than coal bed methane (CBM), tight gas and gas hydrates. Shale gas is produced from reservoirs composed of shale with low matrix permeability. The current global energy sector challenges have led to a rapid increase in the demand for energy. Global conventional reserves of natural gas cannot meet growing energy demand owing growing per capita energy consumption mainly in Asia Pacific. A partial solution for this problem is...

Specialty Fuel Additives Market Analysis And Segment Forecasts To 2020

March 2014

Growing environmental concerns caused due to emission of toxic gases into the atmosphere have prompted administrations across various nations to blend specialty fuel additives in transportation fuel.  Additives primarily improve fuel efficiency for diesel, gasoline, distillate fuels and others; and modify effect burn and combustion rates, under high temperatures and to reduce harmful emissions. Additives can be broadly classified as oxygenates and specialty fuel additives on the basis of raw materials. Oxygenates include alcohols (methanol, ethanol, n-butanol, etc.) and ethers (methyl tert-butyl ether, ethyl tertiary butyl ether,...
