The Head of NESF

Dear fuel-interested readers!

I am happy to welcome you here on the National Energy Security Fund internet site. If you are here then you are probably interested in the following subjects:
  • Money streams in oil and gas industry
  • Competing projects of Russian energy development
  • Future of Russian oil and gas corporations

We, at the National Energy Security Fund, are highly concerned about these issues too. Hence, we will try to be your guide in the world of big politics and energy business.

Our main goal is to show how energy resources and political power in Russia interlink.

«Study what hasn’t been studied» is the motto we are guided by sniffing out the smell of the money, oil, and gas in the Russian government lobbies.

Main regulators of oil and gas battles

Russia's political system has clearly become vibrant. Resignations and new appointments, personnel purging and scandals – these factors have become a new norm of current politics in Russia. Administrative competition in the country is growing, and it has evident outcomes in the oil and gas sector. The number of conflicts is expanding, while the role of state regulators is becoming very significant. Moreover, interests of companies in the sector do not always coincide, which puts regulators into a complicated situation. The National Energy Security Fund is focusing on key sectoral conflicts that relevant ministries and services are engaged in.

Middle East: an earthquake on the world market of hydrocarbons
Developments in the Middle East attract great attention. Many experts believe this region plays a major role in formation of oil prices and the future of the world market of hydrocarbons. The situation in the region is indeed developing very quickly. A conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran has put an end to plans of creating OPEC-2. Saudi Arabia is changing its strategy, while Iran is increasing its presence on the world oil market; the latter also intends to become a serious natural gas exporter being ready to join the South Corridor project and intriguing against Russia. Meanwhile, the war in Syria may intensify at any moment affecting Iran’s production potential and Turkey’s transit possibilities. These events directly influence the supply of hydrocarbons on the market. It means all oil producers are concerned about them, at least because they need to understand the level of oil prices in the future.
