Futuristic tablet computer to review Oil & Gas business from any location.” - Oil & Utility Trends
“I am ready for the winter but I want a tablet computer for maximum $3.7 Million to review my business from any location.”
We are talking about automated workstation for Alexey Miller, Chief Executve Officer at Gazprom.
It is estimated Oil & Gas sector would increase by 50% in 2030. Let's talk about it by looking at ongoing and future trends in global economy.
In 2016 the completion of “The Power of Siberia” project is expected to be finalized as this construction of massive pipelines undertaken by Russian Mega companies i.e. Gazprom and Pemex’s Los Ramones by entering in Phase 2 is among the biggest boosts of all time for Oil and Gas industry. The biggest aim behind “The Power of Siberia” project is to have unified gas transmission system and gas production centers for Irkutsk and Yakutia to get across the gas from these centers and conveying it to Vladivostok. This trend is helping Russia in natural gas export and gives excess to the economy of South Asia. Whereas on the other perspective Los Romones Phase 2 plans to help Mexico in order to satisfy its own oil demand.
Introduction of new technology of oil extraction by BP is the first one as the frontrunner in this technology. Well this new BP technology is introduced to boost the quantity of oil that it can extract. This plan is used for the first time at £4.5bn by the west of Shetland for the Clair Ridge development. If the conventional way is used the oil will carry only 10% crude that it contains. In result the pressure will be exhausted. But with new method introduce by the Clair Ridge alone will bring in extra barrels of 42 million in the energy firm. Oil on surface is more because of the established industry technique for water flooding. Deep into the seabed inside the sea water is pumped within the oil bearing rocks.
The new trend of Shale gas is related to natural gas which is packed within shale formations. The rich sources of petroleum and natural gas are Shales that is fine grained sedimentary rocks. Over the period of decade the mixture of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing had permitted to way in to huge volumes of shale gas that were formerly uneconomical to produce. The natural gas production taken from shale formations had revitalized the industry of natural gas in the United States. The use of shale gas is prevented because of the limitations on extraction technology usage.
To know the general trends in energy sector is supply of the Natural gas which is fast growing and can overtake coal and is on second position behind oil, it is assessed that the coming 2 decades will bring more than 60% rise in Natural gas demand. With this global demand trend that is 55% now and will be 60% in future for oil and natural gas as the both will become the top two energy sources of the world. The more supply of new oil and gas will be getting through unconventional sources i.e. production from shale formations because of the growing share lead by global supply. The renewable energies are expected to grow timely, specifically wind and solar power. There might be chances of delay in demand growth and curb emissions because of the energy saving technologies and practices that are new high efficiency natural gas plants and hybrid vehicles that has bring efficiency in energy sector.
Oil & Utility Industry
Know the Trend of National Iranian Oil Co.
It has calculated that the 6.4 billion barrels per day are supplied by National Iranian Oil Co. Iran is a huge oil and gas producer in spite of international sanctions but India and Turkey are blamed to trading Iranian oil against gold.

The prior most aim of the PetroChina is to promote forestry bio-energy which is key part for energy development strategy in order to achieve goals for industry and ecology. So the biggest focus is on the Green source of energy.
Discover the Trend of British Petroleum
BP reputation was ruined by the oil spill explosion in the Gulf of Mexico and damages its funds now up to 4.1 million barrels are supplied per day. Although BP might not maintained its sale per day of 4.1 billion for a longer period due to the concerns related to it.
Recognize Trends of Royal Dutch Shell
The 3.9 million barrels sale per day is made by the Royal Dutch Shell. Its $24bn investment was a let down for shell due to the promises made by US Shale gas boom who failed to keep the promises. Shell is venturing hard and making its effort in Alaska’s Chuckchi Sea to start drilling it for oil.
Get Familiar with the Trends of Pemex
The sale is up to 3.6 million barrels on a daily basis. $2bn tender is voided by Pemex which was their largest tender among all because of the project i.e. Los Ramones which is moving into phase 2.

From now onwards Mexico will be facilitate by Pemex for efficient gas transportation for the upcoming years to come.
Get to Know the Trend of Chevron
A daily sale of 3.5 million barrels by Chevron is making it successful one.
