  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy is responsible for developing and implementing the country's energy policy.

  • Energy Companies


    Rosneft (Federal Government 40.4%, BP 19.5%, QH Oil Investment 18.93%) is the largest oil company, accounting for around 40% of total oil production (2020). In 2018, QH Oil Investment acquired 18.93% of Rosneft for US$4.25bn. In 2017, Rosneft acquired a 49% stake in Essar Oil's (India) for around US$13bn. In 2016, Rosneft acquired 50.08% of Bashneft (400 kb/d) for US$5.2bn.

  • Energy Supply


    Gas production increased by about 18% between 2015 and 2019 and dropped by 6% to 722 bcm in 2020. Previously, it had decreased from 2013 to 2015, after a progression of 1.4% per year from 2000 to 2013. Russia is the second largest gas producer in the world behind the USA.

  • Energy Prices


    The Government liberalised the price of oil products. Diesel and gasoline prices follow international oil prices: they increased slightly between 2016 and 2019 and stood at US$0.67/l and US$0.63/l in 2020. Oil product prices are more than 50% lower compared with the European Union.


  • Energy Consumption

    Total per capita consumption reached 5.1 toe in 2020. Per capita electricity consumption was around 6 280 kWh.

    Total energy consumption increased rapidly between 2015 and 2019 (2.6%/year) and then dropped by 4% in 2020.

    In 2020, gas represented the largest share of consumption (55%), followed by oil (19%), coal (15%), nuclear (8%), hydro (2%), and biomass (1%).

  • Issues & Prospects


    Gas production prospects were revised by the government in May 2021: Russia is now expected to produce 698 bcm of gas in 2021 (-6.9%), 743 bcm in 2022 (-2%), 773 bcm in 2023, and 795 bcm in 2024 (unchanged); LNG production is still expected to average 30 Mt in 2021.
