Development of offshore projects: words or deeds?

Development of offshore projects: words or deeds?

The focus on offshore projects is an old and stable trend in development of the world oil and gas production industry. In Russia there are active debates about huge potential of our shelf; however, there are serious problems with moving from talking to working.

The government promises significant assistance, both infrastructural and fiscal. But this does not seem to be sufficient. As a result, there is a question whether the shelf will become a lifeline of the Russian oil and gas sector. Moreover, the state is starting to speculate about other projects, such as untraditional oil, not even having begun the real development of offshore fields.

The analysis of real time frames of the launch of breakthrough shelf projects is a central topic of this report.

The report elaborates on the following issues:

  • State regulation of shelf development

    • Evolution of shelf programs
    • New configuration of elites, their views on shelf projects
    • System of state control over shelf exploration
  • Shelf owners

    • Rosneft and Gazprom defend their monopoly
    • Do private companies have chance to change the situation?
    • Possible privatization of state companies, legal collisions caused by that
  • Foreign corporations on the Russian shelf

    • Analysis of swap deals
    • Role of nonresidents on the shelf, their zone of responsibility
  • Upcoming taxation revolution

    • Analysis of new system of taxation of shelf projects
