Natural gas motor fuel: will the balance on the domestic market really change?

Natural gas motor fuel: will the balance on the domestic market really change?

At the moment there are good prospects for development of the natural gas motor fuel in Russia.

Difficulties with expansion of gas exports raise the question about promotion of gas consumption on the domestic market, particularly given that oil companies promise to increase their natural gas output. If the domestic demand for natural gas is not elevated, the oversupply of natural gas may become an unexpected and serious problem.

Switching motor vehicles to a cheaper type of fuel may give an impetus to development of the economy through reduced costs of commodities and advance in buying activity.

Moreover, it will provide for additional quantities of oil available for exports, as domestic oil production has reached its peak and in the near future it will start easing back.

It is clear that development of the natural gas motor fuel market requires investments: it is necessary to create the fueling infrastructure, manufacture natural gas vehicles or actively transfer existing vehicles to natural gas.

The report elaborates on the following issues:

  • The condition of the fleet of motor vehicles in Russia

    • The fuel market structure
  • Peculiarities of the natural gas motor fuel

    • Main types, advantages and disadvantages
  • Economy of using the natural gas motor fuel

    • Costs of using the NG motor fuel compared to petrol and diesel fuel
    • Costs of transfer of motor vehicles to NGMF
  • The past and the present of NGMF

    • The history of NGMF introduction in Russia
    • The current condition of the NGMF market
  • State support to NGMF development

    • The program of transfer of public transport to natural gas; provision of subsidies to buying NG powered buses and municipal service vehicles
    • Is support of state authorities efficient and sufficient?
  • The program of building NG fueling stations. Who will benefit?

    • Officials responsible for NGMF development; the position of regulators
  • Main beneficiaries of NGMF development in the country. Efficiency of their efforts on developing NGMF

  • Medium-term forecast of developments: pros and cons of the NGMF boom in Russia

Fiscal Policy on Oil and Gas Sector: Revised as Often as Wikipedia
The tax system in the oil and gas sector continues to undergo radical changes. The beginning of 2019 saw the introduction of a new tax regime: additional income tax. That experiment was supposed to start migration of the oil industry to an innovative principle of taxation: on profit, not revenue. It seemed that a new main road was found. In the same year, however, the Finance Ministry launched an overt offensive against AIT. The fear of loss of government revenue now is more powerful than the threat of causing oil production to collapse in the medium term because of a tax system that does not stimulate investment. The Finance Ministry would strongly prefer to speed up the tax manoeuvre completion that earns the state budget additional money. Oil and gas companies respond to this with individual lobbying, attempting to wangle special treatment for their projects.
Ukrainian Gas Hub: Climax at Hand
The “zero hour” comes in less than a month: the contracts for gas transit through Ukraine and for supplying Russian gas to the country terminate at 10 am on 1 January. Meanwhile, Gazprom and Naftogaz are very far from looking for a mutually acceptable solution. The entire European gas business is watching intently the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine. Everyone is waiting for a new “gas war”: the January 2009 events proved to be a serious test both to European consumers and to Gazprom as a supplier. Is there still a chance of agreement? If there is not, will Gazprom cope with its obligations to deliver gas to Europe? Is Russia bluffing as it assures that the new infrastructure and gas in underground storage facilities will enable it to get by without Ukrainian transit even as soon as this winter? What will happen to Ukraine itself at the beginning of 2020?
