State management in the oil and gas sector: Last autumn of current political cycle

State management in the oil and gas sector: Last autumn of current political cycle

The main political intrigue of the upcoming election cycle would seem to be over. Vladimir Putin is set to return to the president’s office, while Dmitry Medvedev is to chair the Cabinet. But in reality, everything is just about to begin. Some scenarios of reformatting Russian state authorities are indeed ruled out. Yet, there are many unclear things, including the question of the oil and gas sector management. Changes in the system are unavoidable. There is temptation to fix the rules of the game for the next six years, which adds a special connotation to the upcoming transformation.

The new report is devoted to the present and the future. Authors attempt to analyze changes in the system of managing the oil and gas sector over the past 1.5 years. But the main thing is to understand what awaits the sector in spring 2012, when formal election procedures are completed and a new Cabinet and the president’s executive office are introduced to the country.

The report elaborates on the following issues:

  • Latest HR changes in respective ministries and agencies

    • Reasons and consequences
    • What clans have strengthened their influence and what groups are facing administrative problems
  • Latest projects

    • The most important initiatives promoted by clans in the last few months of operation of Putin’s current political system

    • How will the sector profit from the retirement of its main opponent?
    • Successes and failures of clans in lobbying special taxation procedures
  • What to expect in May 2012?

    • The main question is what system of managing the oil and gas sector will be presented after Putin is inaugurated and Medvedev is appointed prime minister in May 2012

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.
