Success and profit go hand-in-hand in oil and gas industry. Oil and gas companies are pressured to meet production targets on a daily basis. Any downtime caused by equipment failure will result in the possibility of accounting for huge losses and crippling of a business, as oil and gas production generates money.

Offshore gas compressors are used for various tasks including reservoir management, production enhancement and the transmission of gas. It is often the case that the conditions that the compressors were designed for are different now this can include varying gas flows, different gas compositions and pressure ratios. The compressors must be running constantly because a loss of production will result in a loss of money if a compressor is taken offline to be upgraded or for critical maintenance.

Monitoring an important item of equipment such as a compressor is essential as it can be difficult to obtain replacement parts or units if a failure was to occur. Adopting a preventative maintenance strategy with regard to compressor monitoring can prevent downtime costs from arising before failures occur or shutdown is mandatory.

Any downtime is an issue in this industry but if underlying causes could be predicted and prevented before a system reached an unrecoverable stage, companies could save millions that would otherwise be lost revenue.

Forecasts indicate that North America is poised to lead the market in coming years, driven majorly by shale boom in the region. United States would become the leading market for gas compressors in oil and gas sector followed by other countries. Countries such as Canada and Gulf of Mexico present a decent market opportunity for vendors and operators.

Europe and Asia-Pacific are fastest growing markets for gas compressors market in oil and gas sectors. Ever increasing exploration activity and shale boom are the main reasons behind the market growth. Countries such as China, the Netherlands and the North Sea present a decent market opportunity in the coming years for gas compressors.

South and Central America and Africa are too expected to share a decent share of market demand in the coming years although there are some factors restraining the oil and gas activity in these regions. Africas oil and gas industry has suffered from various political and social scenarios such as internal wars and corruption, the situation is safe enough these days. There was a problem of piracy as well, but it has been handled well by authorities and is now dwindled. Also, there is a tremendous improvement in security across different countries in the region, helping the companies to look into the region again, thus boosting the oil and gas industry.
