Deepwater Drilling Market Report 2023-2033: Energy Security Concerns, Followed by Rising Investments in Untapped Deepwater Oil and Gas Assets, Favour Market Expansion

Dublin, Jan. 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Deepwater Drilling Market Report 2023-2033" report has been added to's offering.

World revenue for the Deepwater Drilling Market was forecast to surpass US$24.9 billion in 2023, with strong revenue growth through to 2033.

Expanding Global Energy Demand: Meeting Growing Needs

The global appetite for energy continues to rise, driven by factors such as population growth, industrialization, and urbanization. Meeting this surging energy demand is a fundamental driver for the deepwater drilling market. Traditional onshore reserves are insufficient to satisfy this hunger for energy, necessitating the exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons from deepwater locations. Deepwater drilling allows access to vast untapped reservoirs that can provide a reliable source of oil and natural gas to support the world's energy needs.

Depleting Shallow-Water Reserves: Going Deeper for Resources

Shallow-water reserves have been extensively exploited over the years, resulting in their depletion. To sustain and expand hydrocarbon production, the industry has shifted its focus to deeper waters where substantial untapped reserves lie. Deepwater drilling techniques have evolved to enable operations in depths that were previously inaccessible. The need to access these deeper reservoirs is a compelling driver for the growth of deepwater drilling activities.
