  • 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 19.75%, QH Oil Investment 18.46%) is the largest oil company, with a production of 5.1 mb/d (255 Mt in 2022 (+30%)), accounting for 47% of total oil production. In 2018, QH Oil Investment acquired 19% of Rosneft for US$4.25bn. In 2022, BP announced that it will exit its shareholding but still held its stake as of May 2023.

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production decreased by 2.5% in 2022 to 265 Mt after a drop of around 9% in 2020 followed by a 3% rebound in 2021. Prior to that it had increased by 1.3%/year between 2014 and 2019. Russia is the world's second largest crude oil producer, after the USA, at the same level as Saudi Arabia.

  • Energy Prices


    The State controls electricity prices for residential consumers only. In 2022, the average price for households was US$3.8c/kWh, while the price for industrial consumers is US$3.6c/kWh. These prices have decreased by 6%/year and 3%/year for households and industries, respectively, since 2019.


  • Energy Consumption

    Total per capita consumption reached 5.8 toe in 2022. Per capita electricity consumption was around 6 623 kWh.

    Total energy consumption decreased by 1.4% in 2022 after a 9% rebound in 2021 and a 4% drop in 2020. It increased rapidly between 2015 and 2019 (2.8%/year).

  • Issues & Prospects


    According to Russia's "Energy Strategy for 2035", power production should reach around 1 400 TWh in 2035.

    The Ministry of Energy estimated in 2019 that modernising power infrastructures should cost at least RUB 250bn (US$3.9bn) through 2024, including an addition of 6 000 km of new transmission lines and more than 3 500 MVA of transformer capacity.
