NEW YORK, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Top 10 Asia-Pacific Gas and Oil Companies: Growth strategies, performance and SWOT analyses

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0180548/The-Top-10-Asia-Pacific-Gas-and-Oil-Companies-Growth-strategies-performance-and-SWOT-analyses.html?d=CPDAIN52

This report profiles the leading oil and gas companies in the Asia-Pacific region, with primary focus on their exploration and production (upstream) operations. The Asia-Pacific oil and gas industry is a combination of integrated companies and either upstream or downstream companies. Typically, upstream activities involve the exploration, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas; midstream activities include transportation of oil and natural gas through pipelines and tankers; and downstream activities include the refining, marketing and distribution of petroleum and petrochemical products.

'Top 10 Asia Pacific Oil and Gas Companies' is a new Business Insights report which analyzes the major trends in the Asia-Pacific oil and gas industry with focus on the upstream sector. The report provides detailed profiles of the top ten companies in the industry in the region and also includes a brief summary of the next ten players.

Key findings

The Asia-Pacific oil and gas industry is dominated by national oil companies with substantial cash reserves and unrivalled access to domestic oil and gas resources.

Forced by flat growth in domestic crude oil reserves and production, resource-seeking companies intensified oil exploration activities overseas.

Resource-rich companies, on the other hand, are considerably building LNG export capacity to commercialize their abundant natural gas resources and to access international gas markets.

China opened a natural gas pipeline connecting China to a Central Asian country that could likely alter the geopolitics in the region.

Asia-Pacific and the Middle East regions are expected to drive the refinery capacity additions during 2008–14.

Use this report to...

  • Learn from the strategies of the Asia-Pacific oil and gas companies to target future growth markets effectively, avoid their mistakes, replicate their successes and learn of the threats they face.
  • Benchmark your performance against the leading oil and gas companies in the region using critical operational data by company and comprehending their strategies.
  • Understand the major issues affecting the Asia-Pacific oil and gas industry.
  • Predict the key growth areas in the Asia-Pacific oil and gas industry.
  • Utilize thought leadership on the performance of the key players in the oil and gas industry, and their future strategies.

Explore issues including...

Depleting crude oil reserves: the majority of the oil and gas companies in the Asia- Pacific region continue to face either flat or depleting growth in crude oil reserves.

Regulated market environment: Major players in the region are state-owned and operate in a highly regulated market environment. Stateowned companies have limited operational flexibility.

Price volatility: Volatility in oil and natural gas prices to impact operations of the companies.

Environmental regulations: Stringent environmental regulations (that are applicable globally) to curb GHG (green house gas) emissions will result in additional capital expenditure, especially on refineries and emission-intensive exploration technologies.

Supply constraints: A strong economic growth in the region will likely exert pressure on the supply capability of the companies.
