Having witnessed in 2008 the first major signal that future conventional oil and gas supplies will become much harder to find and more expensive to develop, Datamonitor is publishing a range of onshore and offshore oil and gas production forecasts set against a backdrop of consumption and trade forecasts across the Asia-Pacific region.
Scope of this research
- Insight on oil and gas production trends in the producing regions across Asia-Pacific, along with 10 year production forecasts.
- Forecasts of oil and gas consumption in specific countries across Asia-Pacific.
- An evaluation of likely future oil and gas trade patterns and export capabilities.
- Understanding of the changing nature of production capability in specific markets and how this will change over time.
Research and analysis highlights
Chinese gas production is growing rapidly both onshore and offshore. Due to its large reserves of coal, China has only recently begun full exploitation of its gas reserves with new pipelines and exploration of gas-prone basins in the western interior and offshore.
The Australian upstream gas industry is growing rapidly, with fields being developed throughout the North West Shelf to serve a growing indigenous pipeline market and an expanding LNG export capacity. Deep waters too are also providing Australia with long-term gas production growth.
For several years, Indian gas production primarily came from the Mumbai High region where most fields are at peak production levels. However, new very large deep water discoveries to the east are being developed and these will lead to growing gas output.
