It's a gas: Industry set to return to revenue growth moving forward as commodity prices rebound

The Oil and Gas Extraction industry has been challenged in recent years by a decline in oil and natural gas prices, and revenue contracted over the past five years due to steep price drops in 2015 and 2016.

Moving forward, the industry is also expected to increasingly hinge on improvements in drilling technology and techniques. As industry operators deplete their reserves, it will become necessary to improve efficiency and minimize waste. Over the five years to 2022, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to rebound in line with an expected increase in commodity prices...read more.

This ratio ranks this industry among the most capital intensive of all industries. Companies rely on large-scale capital equipment, rather than labor, for output. However, oil field workers also must be highly skilled and trained, which is reflected in the industry's very high average wage.In addition, the substantial capital cost of production facilities reflects the need for a high degree of reliability. Facilities operate constantly and must be resistant to corrosion. They must also be able to withstand extreme weather, both offshore and onshore. Add...purchase to read more.
