The results of the Fuel and Energy Complex of Russia in 2017

Minister Alexander Novak noted that the fuel and energy complex has retained a key role in the country’s economy. In 2017, the share of the fuel and energy complex in the gross domestic product increased by 0.6% to 22.6%, the share of oil and gas revenues in the federal budget increased by 3.6% and amounted to 39.6%, the share of the fuel and energy sector in exports increased by 0.7% % and amounted to 58.9%.

The production of oil and gas condensate in Russia in 2017 decreased by 0.1% compared to the level of 2016 and amounted to 546.8 million tons. This reduction is due to the fulfillment by Russia of the terms of the agreement of the OPEC + countries on the reduction of oil production. Nevertheless, Russia has maintained the first place in the world for oil production with a share of 12.4% in 2017.

The minister also noted that the agreement of the OPEC + countries had a significant economic effect, as a result of which the federal budget received 1.2 trillion rubles.

In 2017, 55 oil fields were commissioned in Russia. At the same time, the minister singled out the Lodochnoe, Tazovskoye fields and the Ergin oil and gas cluster.
Capital investment of vertically integrated oil companies in oil production increased by 9.9%, to 1.33 trillion rubles.

In 2017, 1,225 km of main oil pipelines were commissioned.

Alexander Novak called the adoption of a tax law depending on the economic efficiency of field development (NDM), the approval of a general scheme for the development of the oil industry, and further work related to the increase of CINs as the most important tasks for the year 2018 in the oil industry.

The head of the Ministry of Energy told that on March 30 the State Duma will consider the draft law on NDM.

“We hope that the law will be adopted before the end of the political cycle,” the minister said.

Primary oil refining in 2017 decreased by 0.2% and amounted to 270 million tons. The production of motor gasoline increased by 0.3%, to 39.2 million tons, diesel fuel – by 2.2%, to 76.9 million tons.

The depth of oil refining increased in 2017 by 2.1%, to 81.3%. Six years ago – in 2011 – this figure was at the level of 70%.

In 2017, 129.2 billion rubles were invested in the modernization of oil refineries, and the accumulated volume of investments since 2011 exceeded 1.3 trillion rubles.

Of the 128 facilities envisaged by the plan for the modernization of oil refineries in 2011-2020, by the end of 2017, 78 have been commissioned and reconstructed.

“We have already passed more than half the way,” the minister commented on the situation. During the year of 2017, 6 new plants were commissioned, 2 more were reconstructed.

Chairman of the Public Council of the Ministry of Energy, the head of Sberbank German Gref expressed concern about possible tax changes for the refinery.

“We have a great chance to become owners of a large number of refineries, because the first tax maneuver led to the fact that their profitability fell by half and all business plans for taking money flew away into tartaras.”

Alexander Novak replied that his ministry does not offer additional tax maneuvers.

“On the contrary, we are here, in this case, as an opponent of the proposals of the Ministry of Finance,” he stressed, and expressed his opinion about the inexpediency of innovations before the end of the modernization of all refineries, that is, not earlier than 2023.

The production of natural and associated gas in Russia in 2017 increased by 8% compared to the level of 2016 and amounted to 691.1 billion m3.

“We reached a record figure,” stressed the head of the Ministry of Energy.

Russia ranks second in the world in terms of gas production, behind the United States. Its share in world production is 18.5%.

Deliveries of Russian gas for export, including liquefied natural gas, in 2017 increased by 7.5% compared to the level of 2016 and amounted to 224.2 billion m3. Supplies to the domestic market grew by 2.5%, to 468 billion m3.

The gasification level of natural gas in 2017 increased by 0.9% and amounted to 68.1%. The Minister noted that in recent years the gasification rate has been increasing by about 1% per year.

The consumption of natural gas as a motor fuel increased by 11.1%, to 600 million m3. The exchange trade in gas was developing.

“The volume of exchange trade in 2017 increased by 20%, and if in 2014 this figure was zero, today 20 bcm of gas is sold on exchange trades,” Alexander Novak noted.

The most important result of the gas industry in 2017, the minister called the introduction of the first stage of the Yamal-LNG plant with a capacity of 5.5 million tons per year.
