The well intervention market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 7.6 billion in 2021 to USD 9.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period. The growing need for maximizing production potential of mature oil and gas fields is the main driver for the well intervention market. Digitalization and automation of well intervention solutions and the growing demand for offshore and subsea well intervention are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the well intervention market during the forecast period.
Key Market Players:
A few major players that have a wide regional presence dominate the well intervention market. The leading players in the well intervention market include Halliburton (US), Schlumberger (US), Baker Hughes (US), Weatherford International (US), and NexTier Oilfield Solutions (US).

The well intervention market has promising growth potential due to the continuous shale developments. It is difficult to extract oil & gas from shale reservoirs due to which shale reservoirs require more intervention processes to optimize oil production. According to the IEA, the shale production from the US alone is expected to cross 100 million barrels per day. Shale development in other countries such as China and Argentina are also likely to boost the well production activities in these countries, which is likely to drive the well intervention market in North America, Latin America, and Asia Pacific.
The well intervention market, by service type, is segmented into logging and bottomhole survey, tubing/packer failure and repair, stimulation, remedial cementing, zonal isolation, sand control, artificial lift, fishing, reperforation and others. Sand control services are observed to be new revenue pockets for the oilfield service providers owing to the increase in drilling activities in unconventional reservoirs such as shale reservoirs and oil sand formations. The services help in reducing the operational expenditure that is involved with the removal of sand. The need to enhance production from mature reservoirs are expected to drive the market for this segment during the forecast period.
The report segments the well intervention market, by well type, into horizontal wells and vertical wells. The horizontal segment of the well intervention market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as horizontal drilling is observed as a more efficient method of drilling. The horizontal wells account for about 70.0% of the total drilled wells. Furthermore, the offshore and shale developments have boosted the horizontal well type to be the largest and fastest-growing segment of the global well intervention market.
The well intervention market, by application, is categorized into onshore and offshore. Furthermore, the North Sea region is playing a crucial role in fueling the growth of the offshore well intervention services market as the reserves in the region are reaching maturity. In Norway and the UK, 60% of the fields have attained maturity. Countries such as South America, Brazil, and Mexico are considered to be the major offshore markets. The offshore segment is further segmented based on the well depth as shallow, deepwater, and ultra-deepwater. The ultra-deepwater segment is expected to be the promising segment for well intervention providers. Growth is driven majorly by the increasing ultra-deepwater drilling and production activities and an increase in the number of maturing subsea wells. Furthermore, the investments to revive the mature onshore fields are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the well intervention manufacturers during the forecast period.

North America is estimated to be the largest and fastest-growing market for well intervention during the forecast period. The region has been segmented, by country, into US and Canada. The increasing number of mature oil and gas fields and the growth in unconventional reserves such as tight oil and shale gas are primarily driving the demand for well intervention services in the US and Canada. According to the BP Statistical Review, 2020, the US was the largest producer of oil in the world, accounting for 17.9% of the total production in 2019. Moreover, the country has been experiencing huge investments from upstream operators to increase the production from the depleting fields in Texas, Permian Basin, and the Gulf of Mexico, along with new drilling activities in ultra-deepwater locations in the Gulf of Mexico, which is likely to drive the North American well intervention market.
