It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Global Challenges of the Energy Mix in 2022
If our oil disappears, it will need to be replaced. Oil will be supplied from other places located further away, such as Canada, Guyana, and Brazil. There will be other logistics-related costs. <...> Whereas at the start of the year three quarters of our oil went to Europe, now more than 50% of it goes to the Asian market. <...> We need to work on restructuring our export infrastructure. That does not only mean oil pipelines, but reservoirs and ports, too. In addition, there will need to be a fleet of tankers, as well as mechanisms and tools to facilitate trade, and funding for trading operations

An important focus of ​​work is to reduce carbon intensity. We aim to reduce our carbon intensity by a third by 2030 by improving our energy efficiency and reducing the flaring of associated gas. We need to look at opportunities to diversify our business and create new products and technologies for the new energy order. Oil companies are already producing hydrogen from methane. This hydrogen is called ‘grey’, but by applying technologies to capture, pump, and store carbon dioxide, we can make this hydrogen ‘blue’. But de facto it will be ‘green’, since it will have a low carbon footprint

We need to invest and develop our new energy. This includes renewable energy sources, the atom, hydrogen energy, and the use of technologies to capture carbon dioxide. These technologies and new products should enable us to extend the life cycle of our traditional energy carriers, hydrocarbons, including gas

We see the crisis on the European gas and electricity market. As for the Russian market, there are no problems in principle. The European gas and electricity market is a problem. This includes a shortage [of energy] and, as a result, high prices. Much has been said about this during Russian Energy Week, and it’s a combination of negative factors and events, ranging from natural phenomena and cataclysms. A cold winter, followed by a hot, windless summer, and, consequently, a decline in the water level in Turkey, and the need for countries that rely on hydropower to switch to gas

The oil industry is an industry in which it is currently interesting to work. It’s a science-intensive and innovative industry, and it constantly generates some new innovations and forces related industries to also produce these innovations. For our part, we are trying to do everything we can so that former students are already well prepared when they come to our company. We have developed and are implementing a cooperation programme with various universities. These include dozens of universities. We have 21 joint master’s programmes with various universities from Tomsk to St. Petersburg. We have nine scientific and educational centres and laboratories. Each year, around 2,000 students undergo on-the-job training at our enterprises

As far as the Russian energy sector is concerned, we have a margin of safety for both oil and gas. Gazprom Neft has spare capacity that we use to boost production in accordance with the schedule set by OPEC+. Moreover, we are increasing investments and making additional investments in the second half of this year in order to create reserve capacities for the possibility that oil production may increase next year. Next year, we will be able to boost the production of liquid hydrocarbons and oil by 10%. As for the situation on the domestic market – gas, electricity, and petroleum oil products – frankly, we don’t see any problems. There’s no deficit and prices are stable

Is Russia Prepared for a Global ESG Transformation?
Certainly, if we talk about the process of decarbonization of the economy, this is one such major trend in the development of the world economy. It is obvious for us that the world economy has followed this path ... Perhaps, perhaps, the point of no return has already been passed. Obviously, it is a challenge for oil companies, including ours. We are responding to that challenge. As you know, we have developed a new ESG strategy that, among other things, includes such an area as reducing the carbon intensity of our operations. So far, we have set a target to reduce our carbon intensity by one-third by 2030. Still, it is quite possible that this strategy will be refined, and we will set more ambitious goals

Is Russia Prepared for a Global ESG Transformation?
At the moment, of course, you and I see quite high prices for hydrocarbons, including oil. They may not be record high, but they are high. I mean, ... not only low hydrocarbon prices await us in the long term. It is absolutely clear that the two energy cycles, the traditional and new energy cycles, will continue for some time, for a very long time. A quick transition to a new energy paradigm is not possible ... There are many reasons for that. These are not only technological reasons, these are certain inertia factors, these are certainly economic reasons

One of the major challenges is regulation. A lot will depend on regulation. One of the problems for us is the attitude of the European Union towards blue hydrogen, it is perceived rather negatively. We believe there is some technological discrimination in this
