Hopefully, Rosneft's consolidation and LUKoil's upward trend will pull Russian companies back into the top 50 firms of the Financial Times Global 500, as only candidate Gazprom crashed out extravagantly this year by losing 26 places and ending up 57th due to the quickly changing European market. To add salt to the wound, Gazprom is now sandwiched between Walt Disney and McDonald's.

... through the Yakutia-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok gas pipeline… slated for 2016”. In February 2013, ITAR-TASS reported that Gazprom has started to consider bringing forward the 2016 aim – so has the Russian energy elite realised the need to hurry?
