State regulation of the oil and gas sector in 2014, prospects for 2015

Our traditional series of reports is concluded with the final review of main developments in the Russian oil and gas sector in 2014.

2014 year has not been a typical year for the sector. The oil and gas sector encountered several serious problems simultaneously.

World oil prices dropped sharply. Russia was subjected to tough pressure of western sanctions that naturally mostly affected the oil and gas sector – the flagship of the Russian economy. Besides, the general worsening of the budget situation made the government again resort to its favorite practice of increase in taxes on the FES.

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.
