SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines) offers connection between subsea production and surface systems. Umbilicals provide a vital link between subsea production system, processing system, and the surface and have no contact with the produced fluids. Flowline transports the unprocessed fluid from the subsea well to the riser, which is then transported from the riser to the surface processing system.  

Global SURF (Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines) market was valued at US$ 34.1 Billion in 2021, in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.9% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

Increasing demand for oil and gas backed by increasing exploration and production activity in deep and ultra-deep water depths have boosted growth for the global SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines) market. For instance, according to the U.S. Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) report in January 2022, crude oil Producers in Alaska added a substantial new volume of proved natural gas reserves in 2020. The annual total of proved natural gas reserves in Alaska increased in 2020 by 27 Trillion cubic feet (Tcf) quadrupling the state’s total from 9 Tcf to 36 Tcf.

Increasing demand for oil and gas coupled with increasing deep-sea developments has facilitated growth in the market for SURF (subsea umbilical, riser and flowline). Increasing demand for using capital intensive techniques in unconventional sources, and increase in deep water explorations to increase oil productivity has further accelerated SURF installations in the offshore oil and gas production projects.

Among region, Europe accounted the largest revenue share in the global SURF market in 2021. This is owing to growing oil and gas exploration, production activity, and rising initiatives of major players to build advanced technologies. Favorable government regulations in western European countries with the prevalence of customized and advanced technology solutions will spur the investment opportunity in Europe. Growing demand for natural gas specifically from the Eastern Europe has prompted the exploration of unexplored subsea reserves significantly located across the U.K. and Norway.

Market Restraints

The decline in crude oil prices over the past few years stands as a restraint in the growth of the global SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines) market. According to the U.S. impact assessment report in January 2022, the proved reserves of the U.S. crude oil and lease condensate declined 19%, from 47.2 billion barrels to 38.2 billion barrels at the end of 2020. Proved reserves of crude oil decreased 8.4 billion barrels in 2020, and proved reserves of lease condensate (produced from natural gas wells) decreased by 560 million barrels. The decline in the crude oil reserves is hampering the overall market growth.

Market Trends

Rising oil and gas automation, also known as oilfield automation, in the oil and gas industry is the latest trend in the global SURF (Subsea, Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines) market. The growing number of oil reserves exploration activities involves digital technologies that can help energy producers better compete in global markets. Advancements, such as multi-well pad drilling, multiple fracture stages, and improved well and pipe design, have already boosted drilling efficiencies significantly. Producers also are using fewer rigs to extract more oil and gas in less time, which keeps costs down.
