Some highlights from the report:

  • There will most likely be a production growth from subsea fields in Norway, and a steady level in the UK.
  • In both countries, spending on subsea equipment, installation and services will grow towards 2018 reaching a combined level of NOK 80 bn in 2017 compared to NOK 38 bn in 2011.
  • The number of subsea trees coming on-stream will be 60-80 in 2011 and 2012, before increasing towards 2018, averaging 100 per year 2012-2018.
  • Statoil is the only large operator with an overall strategy with respect to the aftermarket and a clear ambition for improving its installed base of subsea equipment.
  • Change of fiscal regime in the UK may imply postponements on marginal projects
  • New subsea trees on existing projects has been the main driver of the market the last decade, but going forward, growth will be driven to a larger extent by greenfield projects
  • Both Norway and the UK have aging infrastructure, with more than half of the trees being over 10 years old
  •  A key driver in the aftermarket is the retrieval of trees for maintenance. A majority of the activity will be in Norway, driven by Statoil
