Sanctions Against Russian Oil and Gas: Coil Tightening

Sanctions Against Russian Oil and Gas: Coil Tightening

The optimistic forecast about the development of relations with the US has not come to pass. Not only Western sanctions have not been lifted, but they have been made even heavier.

The latest “strike” was inclusion of Russian legal entities and individuals in an SDN list. There are not many fuel and energy companies on the list, but there are persons on it who are significant for the industry. Besides, the list is definitely not closed.

Our report will explain what exact projects have already been frozen. How the new sanctions work. Where Russian companies look for funding. Whether non-residents are scared. How the industry views and experiences sanctions. Whether they have become a disaster.

In the report you will find answers to the following questions:

  • The impact of sanctions on the financial position of Russian companies

    • How sanctions have affected lending support for Russian oil and gas corporations
    • Where companies get resources for investment
  • Sanctions and upstream

    • Analysis of launched greenfield projects: why sanctions have so far not affected production
    • What will happen next: to the Bazhenov, Domanik, and Khadum formations, the continental shelf
    • New technological solutions: sanctions a brake or a catalyst?
    • How quickly is proprietary technology for producing hard-to-recover reserves being created in Russia?
  • Participation of Western investors in upstream oil projects in Russia

    • Are non-residents fleeing?
    • A map of active projects
  • Fire at pipelines

    • The gas industry under sanctions
    • The impact of sanctions on gas production and especially export
    • The US fight against pipeline projects
    • Why have sanctions not been imposed on LNG production technologies?
  • The fight for the oil service market in the context of sanctions

    • Dependence on foreign service companies
    • The proportion of foreign equipment in the Russian oil and gas industry
  • A medium-term forecast of developments

Analytical series “The Fuel and Energy Complex of Russia”:

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.
