Offshore Oil & Gas Developments in Asia Pacific - Burgeoning Energy Demand Drives Exploration and Production Activities

Rising Need to Reduce Dependency on Import Drives Asia-Pacific Countries to Boost Oil and Gas Production through Offshore Activities

The need to reduce dependency on imported oil and gas is leading countries in Asia-Pacific to increase their domestic production of energy resources by increasing offshore exploration and production (E&P) activities. Countries in the region are witnessing increasing import dependency for oil and gas amidst their rising energy consumption, which is being driven by rapid economic development.

Over the last decade, the Asia-Pacific region has witnessed the fastest economic growth among all the regions of the world, primarily driven by the emerging economies in the region, such as China, India, Indonesia and Thailand. This rapid economic growth has resulted in a sharp increase in the consumption of energy resources in the key economies of Asia-Pacific, led by China, India, Indonesia and Thailand. An increase in oil and gas consumption coupled with limited domestic supply has led to the increasing import dependency of these countries for their oil and gas requirements.

In such a scenario, emerging economies have been taking a multipronged approach to ensuring their energy security. Key steps in this pursuit include increasing the domestic production of oil and gas through development of unconventional resources, developing conventional resources in the offshore areas, and ensuring a supply of oil and gas from international markets through investing in unconventional and conventional oil and gas projects in international markets.
