DUBLIN, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/k4b6wm/iraq_and) has announced the addition of the "Iraq and Kurdistan: Drilling & Oilfield Services Market" report to their offering.
(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130307/600769 )
The potential scale of the Iraqi oil & gas sector is unprecedented in modern times and could offer a major opportunity for the drilling and the oilfield service industry. However, the limited historical data of commercial operations in Iraq, coupled with undefined national and federal oil & gas law and the varying announcements about production forecasts make accessing realistic data and an independent view of the market extremely difficult.
Iraq's proven oil reserves rank it in the top five globally and it is already one of the top ten oil producers, accounting for 2.6 million barrels per day (mmbpd) in 2011.
Government production targets are very high, at 12mmbpd by 2020, and require unprecedented growth in drilling activity; needing over 2,700 wells to be drilled to 2016. This report suggests a more conservative scenario which would see oil production increasing to 5mmbpd by 2016 in Iraq and 1mmbpd in Kurdistan. This is a service-industry capacity-based view of production, although it does include potential restrictions imposed by OPEC. However, the scale of opportunity under our constrained production scenario is still high with more than 1,000 wells required up to 2016.
This report considers prospects for drilling and associated services in Iraq and the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan through to 2016 and gives a market and sector overview and analysis of key players. Expenditure forecasts are based on high growth (the political view) and constrained growth scenarios.
This publication is the first of its kind, as it provides a realistic view of the real opportunity presented in Iraq and the services necessary to achieve this by analysing industry supply capacity and well production costs. This report is valuable for any company with exposure to the Iraq market or those considering making an investment in the market.
Why purchase the Iraq and Kurdistan: Drilling & Oilfield Services Market Report?
The report is a valuable source of information for those looking for a detailed and extensively researched view on the real size of the opportunity presented by the Iraq and Kurdistan markets. The report is essential reading for operators, oilfield service providers, drilling contractors, equipment manufacturers, financial institutions and advisors who need to understand the supply/demand balance related to the production forecasts.
The high growth and constrained growth scenarios allow for market sizing and client identification which is necessary for companies in the drilling and associated equipment and service sectors.
The information in the report provides a strong platform on which to make investment decisions.

1 Summary & Conclusions
3 Oil Sector Overview

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
