Global Annual Capacity Additions from Power Generation Prime Mover Equipment Expected to Near 6 GW by 2026

Natural gas generator sets are forecast to capture more market share from diesel as oil & gas producers use more wellhead gas for power generation

A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market for power generation in upstream oil & gas applications, including onshore and offshore, exploration, and production, providing market forecasts for capacity and revenue, segmented by generation technology and region, through 2026.

Technological advances, regulations, and macroeconomics are expanding the options available to exploration and production (E&P) companies as a variety of new business models are emerging that cut costs, boost efficiency, or otherwise improve operations in this energy-intensive industry. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, global capacity additions from power generation prime mover equipment are expected to grow from 3.9 GW in 2017 to 5.6 GW by 2026.

“Demand for upstream power generation is returning as oil and gas production recovers, but the energy equation is shifting,” says Adam Forni, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. “Faster production periods, cheaper electricity storage, and growing use of gas fuels are pointing toward growing disruption in this established industry.”

As disruption occurs, natural gas generator sets (gensets) are forecast to capture more market share from diesel as oil & gas producers use more wellhead gas for power generation, according to the report. In addition, as fast-producing shale oil wells shorten project timelines, rentals of power generation equipment are expected to grow. As battery storage declines in price, electricity producers are also expected to incorporate them into a growing share of sites to optimize power production and expand the capabilities of remote microgrids.

The report, Power Generation in the Oil & Gas Industry, analyzes the global market for power generation in upstream O&G applications, including onshore and offshore, exploration, and production. The study provides an analysis of key market developments and covers diesel, dual-fuel, and natural gas gensets, turbines, and microturbines. Global market forecasts for capacity and revenue, segmented by generation technology and region, extend through 2026. The report also examines the key technologies available for power generation in upstream O&G, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
