Many autonomous vehicles are not fully protected against cyberattacks, with GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company, estimating that there may be up to 180,000 bugs in the code operating a level 5 autonomous vehicle*— potentially leaving hackers with 15,000 security vulnerabilities to choose from.

GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Cybersecurity in Automotive – Thematic Research’, stresses the importance of defending all of the infrastructures upon which connected cars rely, noting that we are entering a ‘Code War’ era, where every digital device—no matter how small—can be weaponized.

Emilio Campa, Analyst on the Thematic Research team at GlobalData, comments: “Autonomous vehicle manufacturers may be making sure the physical doors lock, but as it stands, the digital doors are wide open. Over the past decade, hackers have accessed the vehicles of numerous major brands: remotely unlocking doors, collecting sensitive data, and even taking control of vehicles. This just isn’t good enough, and autonomous vehicles won’t be safe enough until these gaps are plugged.”

Automotive businesses are increasingly talking about cybersecurity in their financial reports, according to GlobalData’s Company Filing Analytics. The number of mentions of ‘cybersecurity’ expanded almost fourfold between 2016 and 2021. However, the number of mentions is relatively small when compared to other major themes in the sector—especially environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. In 2021, the number of mentions of ‘ESG’ was over 20 times bigger than the number of ‘cybersecurity’ mentions.

Campa continues: “Cybersecurity is competing for attention with other major issues such as ESG and geopolitics. While these are also pressing matters, the importance of comprehensive cybersecurity in automotive cannot be overstated. Public safety aside, cyber breaches and cyberattacks directly affect the value and integrity of car manufacturers’ brands. New vulnerabilities are also constantly coming to light, and they can be difficult to fix.”

Cybersecurity-related regulation is being implemented in different ways around the world. The UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Regulation 155 comes into force in July 2022, the ISO/SAE 21434 standard has been developed, and countries from the US to China are adopting local regulations and oversight. As a result, auto players must be aware of the regulatory landscape to ensure compliance.

Campa adds: “There is a real requirement for manufacturers to get up to speed on cybersecurity, and to do so quickly. The auto industry will face more cyberattacks as it introduces more connected, digital, and electronic systems to new vehicles and as companies themselves become more digital. With cyberattacks causing severe reputational damage and being expensive to remediate, automotive cybersecurity cannot be ignored.”

  • Level 5 autonomous vehicles are fully self-driving vehicles that can handle all driving tasks in all circumstances. These vehicles probably won't feature human controls and must be able to safely handle any situation they might encounter.

Asia is expected to witness the highest crude distillation unit (CDU) capacity additions globally contributing about 47% of the total CDU capacity additions by 2026, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

GlobalData’s report, ‘Refining Industry Market Installed Capacity and Capital Expenditure (CapEx) Forecast by Region and Countries including details of All Active Plants, Planned and Announced Projects, 2022-2026, reveals that Asia is likely to witness a total CDU capacity addition of 7.1 million barrels per day (mmbd) by 2026. Of this, new build capacity would be 4.3 mmbd while the rest is from expansion of existing refineries.

Teja Pappoppula, Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “China and India primarily drive refinery CDU capacity additions in Asia by 2026. Yulong and Jieyang, both in China, are the largest upcoming new-build projects in Asia during 2022 to 2026 outlook period, each with a capacity of 400 thousand barrels per day (mbd). Among the expansion projects, Vadinar in India is expected to witness the highest capacity additions of 515 mbd by 2026 in the region.”

Digitalization, which involves the adoption of digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data, cloud computing, cybersecurity, the Internet of Things (IoT), and robotics in day-to-day oil and gas operations, is enabling the industry to improve productivity and profitability by streamlining operations and cutting costs, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

According to GlobalData’s report, ‘Digitalization in Oil and Gas – Thematic Research’, digital technologies can deliver actionable insights for an oil and gas asset and help companies to reduce their capital and operating expenditures.

2022 05 18 102540

Ravindra Puranik, Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “The adoption of digital technologies in the oil and gas industry has been previously hindered by the shortage of skilled technicians, concerns over data security, and cost-benefit uncertainty for adapting aging assets. However, since the technologies have the ability to transform the industry and create a synchronized ecosystem to meet future energy demands, an increasing number of oil and gas companies are upgrading their assets with digital technologies for long-term gains. 

“Minimizing equipment downtime while enhancing operational performance remain key focus areas for increasing company revenues. There is also a growing emphasis among producers on digitalizing workflows to enhance operational visibility for improved decision making.”

Leading oil and gas players are increasingly collaborating with technology vendors in a bid to develop custom digital solutions that address their needs. For instance, TotalEnergies has collaborated with IBM to develop predictive drilling analytics to aid precision drilling. Similarly, Equinor has developed and deployed its digital twin, Echo, in its North Sea operations by leveraging its exploration and production (E&P) expertise in the region. Concepts such as digital twins and predictive maintenance are increasingly being modified to suit the different use cases of the oil and gas value chain.

Puranik concludes: “Digital technologies are improving the oil and gas industry by streamlining processes and creating new frontiers for operations. These technologies are well suited to tap new hydrocarbon deposits, boost operational efficiency, and reduce methane emissions.”

As the energy transition heats up, many oil and gas companies have begun to recognize the writing on the wall and commit to net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner, according to GlobalData. Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) is seen as a path for oil and gas companies to reach those targets while generating additional revenue, and to some degree as a necessary component of global decarbonization as well, observes the leading data and analytics company.

GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) Strategies in Oil and Gas Industry, reveals that existing CCUS capacity is concentrated at natural gas processing plants due to the use of captured CO2 in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) activities within the upstream segment of oil and gas. By 2030, all the largest CCUS sectors shown are expected to grow, but none faster than the power sector, which will become the largest user of CCUS capacity. Several oil & gas majors are already collaborating on CCUS projects in the power sector, demonstrating that these companies are beginning to diversify their revenue streams.

2022 05 17 111436

Miles Weinstein, Energy Transition Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Many oil and gas companies developed CCUS knowhow by way of EOR projects simply to boost production, long before they were considering cutting emissions. Today, that knowledge has new value, as oil and gas companies have begun selling their CCUS knowledge in the form of technical advisory services or in developing their own emission reduction projects. Additionally, there is evidence that CCUS projects could generate large amounts of revenue through the growing carbon offset market. For example, Occidental Petroleum believes it could bring in more than $1.5 billion, more than its chemicals business makes today.”

Some of the most active companies GlobalData has identified in the CCUS sector are ExxonMobil, INEOS, TotalEnergies, Occidental Petroleum, Equinor, Shell, and Chevron. Some of these companies, like Exxon, have actively used CCUS technologies for EOR for several decades. Many likely see CCUS as a route to maintain oil and gas production while reducing emissions. While specific strategies vary by company, certain themes emerge. For example, a number of the aforementioned companies support carbon pricing as part of a stable regulatory regime surrounding decarbonization, and already set an internal, company-wide price on carbon for investment and planning purposes. By any measure, CCUS capacity will have to ramp up quickly before 2050 in order to see an impact on emissions reduction.

Weinstein explains: “While CCUS capacity is growing, existing capacity accounts for just 0.15% of total energy-related carbon emissions. According to new planned and announced capacity, this would increase to just 0.8% by 2030. CCUS remains an expensive technology to build or retrofit onto existing facilities, and widespread commercialization will require continued cost reductions. Fortunately, recent R&D efforts have been successful at improving capture technologies at low cost.”

Many large CCUS projects are found at industrial hubs and ports, where carbon can be captured from multiple facilities and fed into a shared transportation network for storage or utilization, leading to lower infrastructure costs. This collaborative approach leads to new partnerships between oil and gas companies, as well as companies in other sectors such as chemicals, power, or heavy industry, all working on the same project.

Weinstein adds: “The burgeoning CCUS sector serves as an example of how the oil and gas sector is beginning to be disrupted from the traditional model, despite serving as one of the least disruptive methods of emissions reduction because it maintains existing revenue streams and infrastructure. Thus, oil and gas companies have a vested interest in the commercialization and widespread use of this technology, as it serves as a bulwark to bigger changes.”

At the start of Q1 2022, global oil and gas industry contract activity was stifled due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. However, in the second half of the quarter a minor increase in the number of contracts was reported. Unfortunately, the industry was unable to maintain its position in terms of contract value compared to the previous quarter, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Pritam Kad, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Contracts in the oil and gas industry could only float due to the sheer uncertainties surrounding it, including the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis, rising prices, and project cost escalation. However, Saudi Aramco was able to keep the momentum going with Zuluf oil field expansion contracts during the quarter.”

GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Q1 2022 Global Oil & Gas Industry Contracts Review’, reveals that the number of contracts saw a minor increase from 1,452 in Q4 2021 to 1,546 in Q1 2022. However, overall contract value decreased significantly from $61.16 billion in Q4 2021 to $36.93 billion in Q1 2022.

2022 05 17 105053

In terms of single scopes, operation and maintenance (O&M) represented 56% of the total contracts in Q4 2021, followed by procurement with 16%, and contracts with multiple scopes, such as construction, design and engineering, installation, procurement, and O&M accounted for 14%.

A notable contract during the quarter was Saudi Aramco’s award of multiple contracts for the expansion of the Zuluf oil field in Saudi Arabia, including EPC work to JGC Holdings ranging between $2 and $2.5 billion for two sets of oil and gas separation units, gas compression units, and onshore processing facilities such as crude oil processing units, as well as EPC for injection water pumps, water-oil separation units, thermal oil systems, electrical and non-electrical facilities;

Another notable contract would be those awarded to the National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) for construction work associated with the fourth and fifth Zuluf packages, where the fourth package CRPO 82 includes at least 12 oil-handling wellhead topsides, two oil tie-in platforms, and one electrical distribution platform, and the fifth package CRPO 83 includes up to 12 additional oil-handling wellhead topsides, two oil tie-in platforms, as well as infield pipelines and cables.

Following the news that Russia has invaded breakaway territories in Ukraine;

Veronika Kustkova, Senior Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company, offers her view:

2017 04 20 114457“With Nord Stream 2 coming to a halt, Germany will be losing the additional 150 million cubic metres per day of gas coming from the envisaged pipeline. Gas transit through Ukraine currently holds a yearly capacity of over 100 billion cubic metres (Bcm). As the crisis unfolds, the massive gas imports route via Ukrainian trunk pipelines may stop at any point. This brings an immediate threat to Europe while withdrawals from gas storages continue to rise, but it is doubtful they’ll reach 2018 historical lows.

“European demand for gas has increased since 2020 and is expected to stay at the same level in the short term, placing Europe in an uncomfortable position as Qatar has already declared they will not be able to fulfil the supply shortage. According to Eurostat and GlobalData analysis Russian imports made up 45% of EU imports in the first 10 months of 2021. Similarly, Russian gas exports are reliant on Europe and Turkey, which made up around 78% in 2021 despite increasing volumes going to China.

“An alternative source of gas is US LNG imports, but volumes will be constrained by capacity. However, medium-term increases will depend on new projects with the likes of the Rio Grande, which has already seen a delay. However, in the past two months we have seen the US LNG imports to Europe taking over from Russian pipeline gas for the first time in history. Another offset could be from wind and solar, but we will only see a substantial 7% increase in the European energy mix in 2025.”

Hydrogen’s noteworthy contribution to clean energy transitions makes it a game changer for the power industry, says GlobalData. The leading data and analytics company notes that the power industry can leverage hydrogen’s potential as a cleaner burning alternative to conventional fuels in the evolving hydrogen economy.

GlobalData’s report, ‘Hydrogen in Power – Thematic Research’, notes that, while the cost of producing hydrogen from renewable energy sources is currently expensive, the momentum that has been built along the entire value chain is accelerating the cost reduction in hydrogen production, transmission, distribution, retail, and end-applications. Now is the time to scale up low-carbon technologies and lower their costs, so that hydrogen technology can be widely utilized.

2022 02 24 114727

Sectors such as oil refining and ammonia, methanol, and steel production have been using hydrogen extensively. Hydrogen will play a critical role in the transition to clean energy with the advancement of its applications in sectors such as transportation (fuel cell vehicles), buildings (hydrogen blending), and power generation.

Sneha Susan Elias, Power Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Currently, in the power industry, hydrogen plays a minimal role and accounts for less than 0.2% of electricity generation, according to the International Energy Agency. However, a change is highly possible in the near future, as the mixing of ammonia can decrease the impact of carbon in existing conventional coal-fired power plants, hydrogen gas turbines, and combined-cycle gas turbines (CCGT). When it comes to long-term and large-scale energy storage, hydrogen (in the form of compressed gas, ammonia [NH3], or synthetic methane) has a role to play in balancing seasonal variations in electricity supply and demand from renewable energy sources.”

Hydrogen is becoming popular as a low or zero-carbon energy source. The major growth markets for green hydrogen include green hydrogen replacing grey hydrogen and new markets such as energy storage, buildings, and transportation. Several countries have begun to consider a hydrogen-based economy as a solution to increasing carbon emissions, energy stability, and climate change issues. Green hydrogen presently has a small share in the production mix but is poised to increase, given the ambitious targets announced by countries. Through the Hydrogen Strategy for a Carbon Neutral Europe (EU Green Deal), the EU targets for a renewable hydrogen electrolyzer capacity of 6 GW by 2024 and 40 GW by 2030. India unveiled its National Hydrogen Mission in 2021 and aims for 5 million tonne (MT) green hydrogen production by 2030. Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy plans to set up hydrogen hubs regions wherein users of hydrogen are co-located to take advantage of existing users or potential hydrogen markets.

Elias concludes: “With global leaders in the energy industry in search of solutions that will help them to achieve decarbonization or enhance energy security, hydrogen is on track to becoming an energy vector and its use is gathering momentum.”
