State regulation of the oil and gas sector in 2016, prospects for 2017

State regulation of the oil and gas sector in 2016, prospects for 2017

We traditionally conclude the year with our final report that sums up main events and tendencies of the outgoing year.

The report analyzes preliminary production results, main state decisions concerning the sector, the struggle for property, changes in export policies, and, certainly, forecasts of the sector development in the medium-term perspective.

You will find detailed answers to the following questions:

  • Production results of the year

    • Stagnation in production amid decline in demand and growth in exports
  • The Rosneft stake privatization story

    • The case of selling 19.5% turns into a political earthquake
    • The struggle for Bashneft, the arrest of minister Ulyukayev, the failure of a buyback plan, and the selling of the stake to a Qatari fund and Glencore for Gazprombank money – everything turned out to be a very intricately woven plot
    • Who has won and who has lost? Who is behind the unexpected outcome? Is this case over?
  • Struggle for subsoil resources

    • Battles for offshore deposits
    • Activities of Rosgeologia

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.
