Oil refining: huge plans

The necessity to develop oil processing in Russia has been spoken about over the past 15 years, but the situation began changing just not long ago.

Russian oil majors have started implementing ambitious programs of upgrading and building new oil refining capacities.

The state is trying to encourage this process, which is testified to by taxation policies and a ban on consuming the Euro-2 standard fuel that has come into force lately.

However, the question is about the strategy of oil refining development: what are the long-term plans of the state and companies? There is a feeling that many decisions are made intuitively without scrupulous consideration of consequences.

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.
