Defense Industry and the Fuel and Energy Sector Inter-Enterprise Collaboration for Import Substitution and Technological Development
13 October 2021
Ensuring the national technological sovereignty of Russia’s fuel and energy sector is one of the key prerequisites for the country's energy security and economic growth today. In order to support the continued transition of the Russian energy sector to the use of domestic high-tech products, cooperation between industry players and enterprises within the defense industry must be strengthened. Boosting mutually beneficial interaction between the industries will allow the fuel and energy sector to reduce its need for products that are critical for sustainable development, while supporting the defense industry’s efforts to diversify production in the face of reduced state defense procurement orders and build up competencies in civilian sectors. Successful examples of cooperation in this area already exist. Defense industry companies are currently fulfilling existing agreements, sharing sought-after solutions for the exploration and production of hydrocarbons, including hard-to-recover oil reserves. At the same time, there is still huge potential for the development of partnerships involving cross-sector cooperation, as well as new approaches to eliminating financial, human and technological risk. What examples of successful cooperation between the fuel and energy sector and the defense industry can be identified and considered for expansion? What are the future prospects for cooperation, and is there a business model that makes it possible to use the defense industry's competencies in the best possible interests of the fuel and energy sector? What government support measures are needed in order to accelerate diversification?
