GlobalData: Oil & gas industry contract value sustains despite 22% drop in volume in 2023

According to a new report from GlobalData, the oil and gas industry saw a significant decline of 22% in disclosed contract volume from 7,550 contracts in 2022 to 5,915 contracts in 2023. Despite this decrease, the industry managed to maintain momentum in contract value. This was primarily fueled by contracts for major projects such as North Field South LNG, Golden Pass LNG, Hail and Ghasha field, Agogo FPSO and the expansion of the Amiral petrochemicals facility, amidst challenging market conditions.

GlobalData’s latest report, (“Oil and Gas Industry Annual Contracts Analytics by Region, Sector, Planned and Awarded Contracts and Top Contractors”), reveals that the total disclosed contract value kept momentum at $187.48 billion in 2023, only slightly lower than the $189.94 billion reported in 2022.

“This resilience is attributed to high-value contracts from notable contractors such as Technip Energies and Consolidated Contractors that secured a $10 billion EPCC contract for QatarEnergy’s North Field South LNG project,” said Pritam Kad, Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData. “Tecnimont’s $8.7 billion, Saipem and NPCC Consortiums’ $8.2 billion EPC contracts for the Hail and Ghasha Development Project in the UAE, Yinson Holdings’ $5.3 billion Agogo FPSO charter and maintenance, and Hyundai’s $5 billion EPC work for Amiral petrochemicals facility expansion in Saudi Arabia.”

Operations and maintenance (O&M) represented the majority with 51% of the total contracts in 2023, followed by procurement scope at 25%, and multiple scopes, including construction, design and engineering, installation, procurement, O&M and asset retirement, accounted for around 12% of the contracts.

The standout contracts included Technip Energies and CCC JV’s $10 billion EPCC contract for QatarEnergy’s two mega LNG trains with a capacity of 8 mmtpa each, along with associated facilities as part of the North Field South (NFS) project in Qatar; Tecnimont’s approximately $8.7 billion EPC, and Saipem and NPCC’s $8.2 billion EPC for processing plants, drilling centers, pipeline and utilities infrastructure for the Hail and Ghasha Development Project in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Additionally, Yinson Holdings’ $5.3 billion contract for Agogo FPSO charter and operation and maintenance work, and Hyundai’s $5 billion EPC work for Mixed feed cracker (MFC) and utilities, flares and Interconnecting facilities at the Amiral petrochemicals facility expansion in Saudi Arabia.

“The oil & gas industry’s ability to secure high-value contracts for major projects underscores its enduring strength and adaptability in navigating turbulent times,” Mr Kad concluded.
