Russian Oil & Natural Gas Industry
The Russian Oil Industry is the 7th largest in terms of oil reserves and the largest in proven natural gas reserves in the world (as of 2006). The domestic consumption is low in Russia, so a major part of the country’s oil is exported to European countries. It is expected that in future, Russia will export more oil but with its performing domestic automobile, domestic consumption of petroleum products like gasoline and diesel will go up.
On the contrary, major part of natural gas production is consumed domestically and only a small amount is exported. The high dependency of the country on natural gas for power generation and industrial use is due to low price of natural gas in the domestic market. But this has raised a question over the future supply of natural gas due to high inefficiency of power and other manufacturing industry.
The Russian policy has limited the FDI flow to oil and gas sector post 2003 by taking control through the state owned companies, but the country still needs foreign investments and technological advancements for its future growth.
