Russian Oil and Gas Landscape Reshaped by Geopolitics


Courtesy of

The second half of 2014 brought many external pressures onto the Russian oil and gas industry. While oil production and exports as well as refineries outputs remained stable, at post-Soviet peak levels, macro-level impacts have begun to reshape the industry. Global crude prices have declined sharply, which was followed by the Russian ruble devaluation. The EU/US sanctions limited access to financing and prevented further cooperation on offshore and unconventional developments between Western and Russian firms. In response Russia has canceled a gas pipeline to Europe and consequently has intensified its pursuit of Asia-based partners for production and marketing of Russia’s vast hydrocarbon resources.
