Report summary

The asset report for the Russia West Barents Sea Basin has been archived. Since 2014, Russia's oil & gas industry has been targeted by rounds of EU and US sanctions in response to the annexation of Crimea and the crisis in eastern Ukraine. Sanctions limit the transfer of western technology and financing for Arctic offshore, deepwater and shale oil projects. A comprehensive update will be carried out if and when activity necessitates it. However should the basin be of interest to you, please contact us using the analyst details linked to this report and we will share Wood Mackenzie’s latest views and information on the basin.
