The moratorium on oil drilling following BP's Deepwater Horizon oil spill has hurt the Oil and Gas Equipment and Services sector in the short-term. However, despite flagging business the industry could actually benefit from the fallout of the incident due to the more stringent precautionary regulations anticipated to be placed upon oil operators. New safety codes should elicit higher spending within the sector as operators shell out money to upgrade their rigs so they can start production once again. The moratorium is scheduled to terminate at the end of November, though it is possible the government will lift the ban prior to that date. Production is not expected to continue for some time even after the ban is lifted as companies will still need time to meet new standards.

Whilst the new regulations will surely benefit many players in the space, some like Schlumberger Ltd. will still have a lot of courtrooms visits to do as the BP oil spill investigation continues. How this will affect the share price is still debatable.

Recently, the U.S. Department of the interior announced a new mandate requiring oil & gas operators to close and dismantle wells that had been lying dormant for five or more years. Companies must start the process by Oct. 15th. This should help the equipment and services industry players such as TETRA Technologies Inc. because much of the equipment used to create wells is also useful in dismantling them.
