Oilfield Chemicals: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US oilfield chemical demand in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. The total value of chemicals used in oilfield applications is measured at two levels: application level, which measures formulated oilfield products, and base product level. Total demand for formulated oilfield chemicals is segmented by application in terms of: stimulation fluid additives, drilling fluid additives, production chemicals, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) products, completion and workover fluid additives, and cement additives. Total demand for oilfield chemicals is also segmented by product as follows: specialty chemicals, commodity chemicals, polymers, and gases.

To illustrate historical trends, total oilfield chemical demand is provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

Excluded from the scope of this report are: proppants, which are used in hydraulic fracturing; and gas reinjection, whether considered part of secondary or tertiary recovery.
