Middle East region sees increase in offshore spending

Many Arabian oil exporters have begun to increase their offshore spending after nearly five years of massive cutbacks, according to a Seatrade Maritime report titled ‘Middle East Offshore Market on the Move.’ The report further points out that multibillion relevant projects in the region is expecting to inject new energy into the sector. In line with this, many analysts have observed that a number of national oil companies in the Middle East have recently started the process of boosting their exploration and production budgets.

Citing a study released by MEED, a Dubai-based business intelligence and analytics specialist, the report pointed out that the ongoing oil, gas, and petrochemical projects, which have a combined value of USD 211 billion, across the Middle East are positive indicators that could translate to better growth prospects for the striving offshore and workboat sectors. These projects are on top of other initiatives valued at USD 242 billion that are now at various pre-execution stages.  

Paul Bartlett, Director, PB Marine Consulting, said: “While some of these projects focus on onshore investment, they will still directly or indirectly impact workboat operators. Large corporations behind these major initiatives, along with offshore oil developments, will require a wide range of vessel types for the timely completion of their projects. These include platform support vessels, anchor handlers, cable- and pipe-layers, trenching units, inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) ships, subsea construction vessels, and survey ships, among others.” 

The report investigated some of the Middle East’s major ventures with strong impact on the offshore and workboat sectors. One of these is DP World’s acquisition of Dubai-based Topaz Energy and Marine from Renaissance Services SAOG and Standard Chartered Private Equity/Affirma Capital for more than USD 1 billion.

The report was released ahead of the Seatrade Offshore Marine and Workboats 2019, which will take place from September 23 to 24, 2019 in Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai. The leading conference and trade show for the global offshore marine and workboat industries will gather and connect a powerful network of influencers, leaders, and innovators to discuss industry opportunities and challenges as well as the latest trends and developments.   

Chris Morley, Event Director, Seatrade Maritime, said: “The Seatrade Offshore Marine and Workboats 2019 is an ideal platform to delve deeper into the Seatrade Maritime report. An increase in offshore spending will be the much-needed catalyst for the industry’s significant expansion under the present market condition. We need to continue our dialogues and develop strategic action plans to achieve our shared objectives and optimize opportunities following this latest development in the Middle Eastern market.”   

The trade show will feature a dedicated international exhibition hall, a networking program, and relevant conferences. To learn more about the regional offshore industry, you may download the report here.
