In 4Q21, the oil and gas industry saw an increase of 77% in overall contract value, however, there was a decrease of 14% in the number of contracts, according to GlobalData.

Pritam Kad, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Notable contracts that made significant contributions in terms of value include Saudi Aramco’s 16 contracts, with a combined worth of US$10 billion for the subsurface and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) works for the development of the Jafurah shale gas field in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, rising crude oil prices and improved margins helped to gain further momentum for contracts activity.”.

GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Q4 2021 Global Oil & Gas Industry Contracts Review’, although the number of contracts declined from 1608 in 3Q21 to 1383 in 4Q21, overall contract value increased substantially from US$34.32 billion in 3Q21 to US$60.84 billion in 4Q21.

In terms of single scopes, operation and maintenance (O&M) represented 48% of the total contracts in 4Q21, followed by procurement with 19%, and contracts with multiple scopes, such as construction, design and engineering, installation, O&M, and procurement accounted for 17%.

Other notable contracts include Yinson Holdings’ subsidiaries two contracts with Petrobras for the charter, and operation and maintenance services for the Integrado Parque das Baleias (IPB) floating, production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel operating in the North Campos Basin, offshore Brazil, and ADNOC Drilling’s five-year drilling services agreement worth US$3.8 billion with ADNOC Onshore for the provision of drilling, workover, and other well services in the UAE.
