The Global Pipeline Sampler Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3% by 2028. The pipeline sampling segment is expected to be the fastest-growing in terms of revenue, with a CAGR of 4.8%. Pipeline samplers are devices that are used for checking the quality and quantity of fluids passing through pipelines. They are also known as flowmeters or weighers. Oil pipeline sampling is one major application segment in this market followed by marine and truck unloading, lightering, and LACT units applications among others. The global market is expected to be driven by the increasing demand for energy. Pipeline network systems are major sources of generating and transporting oil, gas, and other petroleum products across the world.
A pipeline sampler is a device used to sample onshore and offshore pipelines for the purpose of quality control/quality assurance, or regulatory compliance. This equipment can be deployed with mobile units (typically based upon truck-mounted systems) or from permanent locations such as wellheads. These devices are typically fitted with flow meters that measure the volume of fluid being sampled in order to calculate its composition. Its features include - Pipe flow system for liquid and gas sampling, Instrumentation for pipeline integrity testing, and the ability to perform a variety of functions via software.
On the basis of Type, the global pipeline sampler market is segmented into Gas Samplers and Liquid Samplers.
A gas sampler is a device that collects samples of natural or process gases from pipelines and other vessels. This type of pipeline sampler extracts the collected material by use of vacuum, pressure swing adsorption (PSA), purging with laboratory air, water washout, etc. It can be categorized as either closed-loop or open-loop, depending on its operating environment and the flow rate needed for sampling. It is used in the gas pipeline to monitor the flow of natural gases and other fluids. It works by sampling a small amount of fluid from within the pipeline, measuring or analyzing it, and then returning it back inside.
A liquid sampler is a type of pipeline sampler that can be used to measure the chemical composition or physical properties of liquids within pipelines. Liquid samplers are used to gather samples from liquid pipelines. They typically contain a valve and a filter that captures solids, before the fluid passes through it in order for an accurate analysis of the sample. This type of pipeline is commonly found in oil production operations, refineries as well as chemical processing facilities where large amounts of liquids flow at high rates.
On the basis of Application, the global pipeline sampler market is segmented into Oil Pipeline Sampling, Marine And Truck Unloading, Lightering, and LACT Units.
A pipeline sampler is used to analyze the fluid properties of oil in pipelines. The device consists of a reservoir where samples are collected for analysis and a pump that supplies pressure to push fluids through the system. It can be integrated with various instruments such as analyzers or gas chromatographs. A sample analyzed by this instrument gives information about flow rate, color, viscosity, freezing point, etc., which allows engineers to determine if there is any problem with flow rates in a pipeline network.
The pipeline sampler is used to measure the flow of gas or liquid through a pipe. In Marine And Truck Unloading, there are several procedures for loading oil into vessels via pipelines like piping from land connection point (LCP) such as wellhead separator which pumps crude oil to storage tanks, etc., Lightering and unloading by tank vessel (LACT), offshore production unit supply ship(OSPS). Anyhow all these processes make use of pipeline Samplers during unloading activities.
The process of lightering is the transfer of oil from an offshore platform or vessel to a target storage facility. The need for this arises when there are no facilities in place near the location where production occurs, which is usually deepwater. In such cases, transferring it via smaller vessels that operate close to shore serves as a viable option. Many companies engage pipeline samplers while performing this operation because they can prove useful due to their unique design and features (i) like being able to handle thicker fluids than other sampler types, (ii) improved safety thanks to having firm fittings that allow them not only offer increased protection against leaks but also aid in easy installation and removal procedures on wells without causing damage during these processes, (iii) ease of use such as being able to be placed on offshore platforms and not requiring the services of an ROV, (iv) higher tolerances when it comes to pressures.
The Pipeline Sampler is used to take a sample of the cargo in order to test it before releasing it into storage and/or transport. The LACT, short for loading arms coordination team, is responsible for ensuring that no illegal substances (such as drugs or weapons) are loaded onto ships using an outdated method known as light-off on arrival which requires adequate safety measures such as inspection by the Coast Guard. To ensure this process runs smoothly without any issues arising with regards to dangerous goods being transported via ship, companies use pipeline samplers like those produced by manufacturers including ONGC Videsh Ltd., Weatherford International plc., Oceaneering International Incorporated among others.
On the basis of Region, the global pipeline sampler market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America held the highest share of 34% in 2017. The dominance can primarily be attributed to high demand from the oil refining industry where gas sampling plays a crucial role in ensuring smooth operations through effective leak detection process at all levels with lower chances of downtime or safety issues due to hazardous emissions caused by leaks. Europe accounted for a second-largest regional market share of 28% in 2017 owing to steady growth witnessed by European Union countries like Germany which has become one of the leading supplier markets across the world due to the presence of a large number of oil refineries as well as petrochemical plants. Asia Pacific region is expected to show the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to growing industrialization and steady demand from end-user industries like shipping, LNG processing, etc. The ongoing offshore exploration projects in countries such as India, China, and Australia among others would further boost the regional market growth over the next eight years.
The growing demand for energy and the increasing trade activities around the world are expected to drive the pipeline sampler market. The expansion of infrastructure development projects, such as oil & gas pipelines in emerging economies including China, India, Middle East countries is also driving this growth in the global pipeline sampler market. Furthermore, an increase in the petrochemical industry across various geographies will propel the demand for pipeline sampling equipment globally.
