Sanctions against Russian Oil and Gas: Pressure Continued

Sanctions against Russian Oil and Gas: Pressure Continued

Almost five years ago Western countries imposed sanctions on the Russian oil and gas industry.

Its performance indicators seem to give evidence that the companies have adapted to the restrictive measures. But the sanctions were not expected to produce an instant effect.

The prohibitive measures may show their negative effect somewhat later. Then the restrictions on access to investment, technology, and markets may come to be felt.

The new report deals extensively with the following issues

  • Innovations in the sanctions legislation: new sanctions measures and announced plans

    • The US and EU in search of weak spots of the Russian oil and gas industry
  • Financial situation in Russian oil and gas corporations

    • Limiting access to loans is one of the most distressing measures.
    • How do companies survive? Situation with debts and investment. Have the hopes for the Chinese come true? Dynamics of Chinese loans and investment in Russian oil and gas.
    • Situation with debts and investment
    • Have the hopes for the Chinese come true?
    • Dynamics of Chinese loans and investment in Russian oil and gas
  • Export of Russian pipeline gas in the sanctions confrontation zone

    • Almost every week various options of sanctions against Nord Stream 2 and other new Russian gas pipelines are discussed in the US
    • How really dangerous are they?
  • LNG at gunpoint?
    • Liquefied gas production did not feature in the list of possible objects for restrictions earlier. However, the American legislators in 2019 for the first time remembered this part of the gas business. How serious are these plans and can LNG production rapidly developing in Russia suffer an actual technological blow?
  • A medium-term forecast of developments

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.
