  • Market Report - Russia Expand Minimize Rystad Energy for the Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions project, 19 October 2016

    Project members can contact Thor Christian Andvik (thor.christian.andvik@intsok.com) to access the reports.
    Market report from Rystad Energy giving both the overview and the details on the current state and proposed developments in the Russian market.
    Russia’s offshore oil and gas production is expected to increase from the current level of around 700 thousand boe/d to over 1 million boe/d by 2020. This is due to the new projects currently under development.
    Development of currently non-sanctioned fields are needed to offset the production decline after 2020. Despite the large discovered oil resources offshore Russia, development of these will take time and entail substantial investments. Due to the ongoing sanctions, western companies are prohibited in participating in deepwater and arctic oil development/production in Russia. As such, a limited number of final investment decisions (FID) are expected towards 2020.
    In 2014, the European Union and the United States imposed sanctions on Russia, banning exports of technology for deepwater drilling in Russia. It prohibits foreign companies to participate in new projects offshore Russia. Planned  exploration activity, such as the exploration cooperation between Exxon and Rosneft, was put on hold, and for the moment only four Russian companies can operate new projects in Russia: Rosneft, Gazprom and the private companies Lukoil and NOVATEK.
