By Application, the Onshore segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the oil and gas industry, pipelines serve as a primary mode of transportation for both crude oil and refined petroleum products. According to industry data, approximately 70% of crude oil and petroleum products in the US, and 90% of natural gas and petroleum products in Canada, are transported via pipelines. This encompasses both long-distance inter- and intra-state transmission systems, as well as local or regional gathering systems that aggregate production for delivery into common carrier transmission networks. However, the market for pipeline transportation faces challenges due to insufficient pipeline capacity and the increasing preference for railroad transportation methods for oil and gas. Moreover, transportation costs have escalated, adding to the market's woes.

By Type, Pipeline  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

The onshore segment of the oil and gas logistics market encompasses a comprehensive range of onshore crude oil and refined product infrastructure, including pipelines, terminals, trucks, railcars, and rail loading and unloading facilities. These assets, in conjunction with other means of transportation owned by the company or third parties, are utilized to cater to client and business requirements. Onshore facilities and transportation assets are intricately connected, with services extending to the transportation and delivery of crude oil and gases to refineries and industrial users. Additionally, these services facilitate the linkage of producers to extensive interstate pipelines and refineries. Trucks, trailers, and railcars are employed for the transportation of crude oil and petroleum products to consumers, while railcar loading and unloading activities at crude-by-rail terminals and industrial gas activities such as wholesale CO2 selling and syngas processing are also integral components of onshore logistics solutions.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The North American market holds significant revenue potential in the global oil and gas industry, with the United States being a major contributor due to its substantial natural gas reserves, particularly unconventional ones in shale formations. However, the exploration of these reserves, located in ultra-deep offshore areas and requiring advanced hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling technologies, comes with high production costs. Despite these challenges, the US is projected to produce 3.9 million barrels per day (mb/d) of shale oil by 2025, positioning North America as a leading producer of oil and gas products in the coming years.
