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
    • Establishment of Rosgeologia
    • The fate of the law « On Oil »
  • Taxation procedures

    • Prior to Alexey Kudrin’s dismissal quite important decisions were made concerning, in particular, the 60-66 regime and new rates of the gas production tax
    • 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
    • Main models from the point of view of relations in the presidential administration-government-companies triangle
    • Possible candidates for the role of supervisor of the fuel and energy sector in the government

Outlook for Russian LNG Industry
Russian Energy and West One Year after Ukraine Conflict Began: Are There Connections Still?
Green Agenda in Russia during Bitter Conflict with West
After February 2022 the agenda was radically rewritten. Western companies began leaving Russia en masse, economic relations with the West were drastically reduced, and the Russian economy began to be pushed violently from the global economic space, hemmed in by sweeping sanctions. All that was, to put it mildly, not the best background for talking about ESG. Especially because tasks of survival and stability under unprecedented pressure became the priority in the economy. In late 2022, however, attempts to reanimate the ESG agenda already became obvious. The message is put across insistently that it is important to Russia regardless of the foreign policy situation. While earlier the “green pivot” was seen as an opportunity to attract Western investors and their technological solutions to Russia, now Keynesian reliance on domestic manufacture is discussed.
Oil and Gas Sector Regulation in 2022 and Prospects for 2023
Gazprom at the Forefront of Economic and Political Battles with Europe
Gazprom is being actively thrown out of the market. Its annual supplies to Europe have shrunk from the previous 150 billion to 65 billion cubic metres of gas. European officials assure that they have already learnt how to live without Russian gas, so they will bring its purchases down to but nominal values in 2023. Their main hope is liquefied natural gas. Today the EU must make a crucial decision: whether it has passed the point of no return in gas business with Russia and whether it is certain that its economy will endure without supplies of Russian pipeline gas. Or, on the contrary, Europe will realise after all that the gas balance will not be achieved and the payment for so headlong a rush for LNG will be disproportionate. Assessment of the potential volume of LNG that will appear on the market before the end of the current decade will be the most important factor for making the decision.
