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.

Looking for Best Tax Treatment of Oil and Gas: Fiscal Experiments Continued
The subject of taxation became the absolute hit of 2018. The government once again decided to rewrite the rules of the game. President Putin’s new inauguration decree served as the main pretext. It turned out that about 8 trillion roubles extra was necessary for the new national projects announced. The Cabinet did not take long to decide where the funds should be taken. The result was acceleration of the so-called tax manoeuvre started as far back as 1 January 2015. It suggested shifting the tax burden to the wellhead: the effect on the state budget of gradual abandonment of the export duty will be more than compensated for by quicker growth in mineral resources extraction tax (MRET). The laws on tax reform have already gone through the parliament and will take effect as of next year. This means nothing good for companies.
