US and Russia will Dominate Global Capital Expenditure on Pipeline to 2022

Analytics firm GlobalData says Canada, China and Nigeria will also make significant investments.

The US and Russia will dominate global capital expenditure on planned oil and gas pipelines up until 2022.

That’s according to data and analytics company GlobalData, which says the nations are set to spend an estimated $88.4 billion (£66.9bn) and $78.8 billion (£60bn) respectively on new build pipelines over the next four years.

It says Canada, China and Nigeria will also spend significant amounts on new oil and gas distribution infrastructure by 2022.

The organization predicts the total length of planned natural gas pipelines around the world will grow to 153,902 kilometers by 2022, with crude oil and petroleum pipelines expected to grow 36,876 kilometers and 30,840 kilometers respectively.

Soorya Tejomoortula, Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData, said: “Booming unconventional oil and gas production is in turn driving the growth of the pipeline network in the US. More and more operators are focusing on connecting growing unconventional production with the Gulf coast for export of oil and gas.

“Russia is further expanding its massive natural gas pipelines network for exports. The country is building pipelines to transport natural gas from its production centers to demand centers such as China, Japan, India and Europe.”
