Sanctions vs. Cheap Oil: What is More Dreadful for Russia’s Fuel & Energy Complex?

... government forbade American companies to take part (supply equipment and technologies) in the following kinds of projects: deep water (over 152 meters) oil field development, Arctic shelf field development, scavenger oil field development, including shale oil and gas. Viktor Katona: Gazprom Gaining Ground in Europe Technological sanctions were a formal cause for some projects to freeze. This wave of sanctions affected the Russian energy sector companies, though to a less extent than had been projected by the American government. The political elite didn’t turn against the political leader, on the contrary, they rallied around him along ideological lines. Restrictions ...

Oil and Gas Markets to 2025 - LUKoil

... by Rosneft and the subsequent "aggressive consolidation" should not only result in efficiency savings, but allow a new avenue of possibility as BP now has access to the Arctic with Rosneft. 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. Finally, it is worth mentioning ...

... dispatch system. In fact the balancing of a mixture of contracts already requires a new level of competence and in turn more investment which previously was not required. As we know, more investment means more cost and greater end-consumer price. For Russia, this is especially a major issue as all the loans for developing new fields and constructing new pipes are done via long-term contracts. This is vital for Gazprom, as the lending banks absolutely adore long-term contracts, especially if they are linked to oil. For instance, the Nord Stream project had a queue of 27 banks. For banks these deals are especially attractive now, as for them to receive guaranteed profit in the middle of a recession for the next 25 years – is amazing. Without long-term ...

... several options, like supplying China, Japan, the Korean Peninsula and even as far as India. Then it was mainly Gazprom’s modest LNG expertise that limited sizeable deliveries in the near future to the heavily LNG focused Asian states. But still, Gazprom made good progress by shifting 9% of Japanese LNG and 7% of its oil in 2011 to Asia. Vladivostok LNG terminal, due for launch in 2017, will increase capacity matching the rising demand, particularly as recent events have benefited Russia (e.g. Fukushima Disaster). However, the talk about North Korea becoming a "transit state" have been completely dashed recently. It seems that Kim Jong-un was not tempted to receive $100 million in annual transit fees - which would probably ...

Oil and Gas Digest

... dispute amid central government and Kurdistan has resulted in contracts being annulled with Exxon Mobil, Total and GazpromNeft; as the central government considers that only it should negotiate energy contracts, not its rebellious regions (See: Gulf Oil&Gas). As a result of anti-Russian import policy, Gazprom's European exports fell 7.5% (2011-12), with opportunities becoming more limited, but it appears that a 40 bcm potential to supply UK is still on the table; as the Russian giant only covers 10% of the island's market (See: Platts)....
