Oil and Gas: Technological Sovereignty
12 October 2022
The Russian oil and gas sector has long faced major challenges, particularly with regard to the deterioration of its raw material supplies. Existing field reserves are gradually being exhausted, and there are almost no major new discoveries being made. This is becoming a pressing concern even in the short term, with rising costs and the potential for reduced production as developing the sector’s resource potential becomes unprofitable. In addition to these ‘old’ problems, new risks are also threatening the industry. The sanctions pressure currently being exerted on Russia necessitates the development and adoption of measures to ensure continued economic activity and the widespread rollout of domestic technologies and equipment across the fuel and energy sector, particularly in oil and gas. The pursuit of technological sovereignty today is no longer just a major trend for the industry, but the key to its survival and sustainable development. In view of this, significant efforts are being undertaken to improve the efficiency of traditional fuel and energy industries amidst the technological challenges, including through research and support for the creation of new markets, the establishment of technological cooperation, support for the development of hard-to-recover reserves, monetization of existing oil and gas reserves, the introduction of a system of test sites and engineering centres, the development of new competencies in industry-specific IT, and the rollout of robotization in the fuel and energy sector. What needs to be done to overcome the major challenges facing the sector? Will the oil industry retain its current role in the Russian economy of the future? What strategies are being adopted by companies choosing to maintain sustainable growth and secure technological sovereignty? What technologies are they focusing on developing? What can be done to promote the development of hard-to-recover reserves? What state support measures are needed in order to implement import independence projects?
