The entire market of oilfield services in production is somewhere around RUB 1.5 trillion of direct costs alone, of which... the cost of calculations and software will be RUB 150–200 billion. The volume of services in oil refining is smaller, but it is also high. <...> If you add everything up, plus additional services not directly related to production and refining that are ordered by oil companies, then... we are talking about a market of potentially several hundred billion roubles. This is one of the largest markets in the country. Right now, the supply of domestic industry software in this market is 5–10% — Pavel Sorokin, First Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation.
In the past, a large number of foreign shareholders, due to their legal constraints, were not always ready to implement the recommendations of the regulator. Now the situation has changed. There is a qualified customer, there is a fairly large order, and the industry has the capabilities and ability to implement it. There is money and resources to do this. We must rush in this direction. The relevant decisions are fixed at the highest level. <...> Deadlines are evident, goals are clear, tasks are set — Vasiliy Shpak, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
Software can be conventionally divided into system-wide solutions, which are in demand in any large business, in any sector. The second direction is industry-specific, specialized solutions, which are needed by companies of this or that industry. As far as system solutions are concerned, the Ministry of Digital Security is ready to coordinate the development of such products. If we are talking about industry solutions, we will, of course, to a greater extent rely on business — Maxim Parshin, Deputy Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation.
