Oil and gas construction projects

Oil and gas construction includes production facilities, liquefaction plants, refineries, pipelines, and storage tanks, and more. Offshore Technology’s Oil and gas construction projects dashboard uses GlobalData’s comprehensive projects database to provide insights into the top oil and gas projects, both offshore and onshore, and oil and gas projects momentum index.

Analysis of the oil and gas construction projects by region shows that the Middle East and Africa region has the largest share of projects by value, with projects worth $1.23 trillion (tn) in pipeline accounting for approximately 35% of the projects in pipeline across the world.

In partnership with

GlobalData's Construction Intelligence Center is the complete source of project, market, company and theme intelligence for the global construction sector.

Oil and gas construction projects with a combined value of $40.57bn were started in 2020, while projects worth $48bn combined were completed.

Brazil started oil and gas projects worth $24bn, followed by Qatar with $3bn and Trinidad and Tobago with $2.45bn in 2020.

Momentum Index for global oil and gas projects

The momentum index is based on scoring the latest developments on projects from +5 to -5 based on the degree to which a development is positive, such as construction commencing or a contract awarded, or negative, such as delays or cancellations. The overall momentum score is the average score for the month, weighted by the project values.

Using GlobalData’s comprehensive and continuously updated construction projects database, Offshore Technology calculates the monthly and trend scores of oil and gas projects.

Monthly score is the average event score for all projects updated in a month, while trend score is the three-month moving average of the monthly score.
