Report summary

Russia’s oil and gas sector – the centrepiece of the Russian economy - is now being targeted with sanctions. These sanctions focus on the pillars of Russia’s post 2020 strategy – Arctic exploration and shale oil, but avoid gas and are unlikely to impact near term production.Rosneft and NOVATEK two of Russia’s largest companies are most immediately impacted. But IOC’s with equity stakes in Russian companies and Arctic or shale oil exploration projects with Russian companies are also impacted.
