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

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?
