The Role of Russian Railways in Ensuring the Efficiency of Fuel and Energy Companies in the Face of Unstable Currency and Raw Materials Markets
6 October 2017
12:00—13:15

Russian Railways is registered as a natural monopoly in Russia, being an organization that transmits electricity to consumers. Russian Railways is a key player in the Russian electricity market and, based on the volume of electricity transmission services provided, is the second largest network operator in Russia after Rosseti. Russian Railways consumes around 8% of the Russian domestic diesel fuel market for its operations. Up to 95% of all coal mined in Russia is transported by train. With all that in mind, it is hard to overestimate the level of connection between rail transport and the fuel and energy industry in Russia. What has so far been achieved as a result of cooperation between Russian fuel and energy companies and Russian Railways? What are the prospects for further collaboration between Russian Railways and the oil and coal sectors? Is the development of sea port infrastructure in Russia matching that of the railway infrastructure? What innovative solutions are being proposed for transporting oil and energy cargos? During this roundtable we will address the above questions, discuss the operations of Russian Railways, and propose strategies for future cooperation between rail transport and the Russian fuel and energy sector.
