  • 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 18.93%) is the largest oil company, with a production of 3.91 mb/d (196 Mt in 2021 (+2.3%)), accounting for 37% of total oil production. In 2018, QH Oil Investment acquired 18.93% of Rosneft for US$4.25bn. In February 2022, BP announced that it will exit its shareholding.

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production rebounded by about 2% in 2021, to 523 Mt, after dropping by around 9% in 2020 and increasing by 1.3%/year between 2014 and 2019. Russia was the world's second largest crude oil producer in 2021, after the USA and at the same level as Saudi Arabia.

  • Energy Prices


    The price of gas is controlled by the State and determined according to the cost-plus pricing method. Certain cross-subsidies occur, in particular between industry and the residential sector.

  • Energy Consumption

    Total per capita consumption reached 5.6 toe in 2021. Per capita electricity consumption was around 6 689 kWh.

    Total energy consumption rebounded by about 9% in 2021 after dropping by 4% in 2020. It increased rapidly between 2015 and 2019 (2.8%/year).

  • Issues & Prospects


    Russia is faced with the depletion of cheap oil fields and the necessity to explore new hard-to-reach and expensive-to-develop oil resources, growing corporate concentration, and increasing problems regarding access to financing.
