Iraq accounts for approximately 8.8% and 1.8% of the world’s proven oil and gas reserves respectively, as of 2017. In 2018, Iraq’s production capacity exceeded the 4.6 mbpd mark. In 2017, the Ministry of Oil in Iraq had set a goal to reach a production capacity of 6.5 million barrel per day, by 2022. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), Iraq is expected to provide 45% of global production growth and become the second largest exporter of oil in the world by 2035. To achieve the target, the government of Iraq has not only increased the investments from the state-run companies but also has successfully attracted the investments from the national oil companies. With these growing investments in the development of oil and gas blocks, the demand for the well-testing and the wireline logging services is expected to increase significantly during the forecast period (2019-2024), in turn, driving the market in the country.

Factors, such as targets to increase oil production, and upcoming exploration and drilling activities in Iraq are expected to increase the demand for wireline logging and well-testing services market during the forecast period.

Increasing the Oil Recovery from Existing Reserves - Creating Opportunities in the Market

The southern, western, and central region are relatively more isolated from the effects of terrorist activities and political tension in the country. These regions also have about 80% of the oil reserves in the country, which is mostly in the production phase. However, the oil recovery from these regions is limited, as the oil and gas industry in the country has been mainly reliant on the water injection methods to improve the oil production from these fields. Iraq has limited water availability, which puts limitations on oil recovery by water injection. Focus on other improved oil recovery techniques, such as artificial lift, gas injection, and other recovery methods can help the country in increasing oil production substantially. Such improved oil recovery techniques can help drive the upstream activity in the country, in turn, providing the opportunity for the market for oilfields services, such as wireline logging and well testing.
