Russian licensing review 2012

Report summary

Russian exploration and development licensing declined sharply in 2012, with a total of only 67 known awards made. This constitutes a new low in a declining trend from a peak of 363 in 2006. Signature bonuses of US$3.6 billion were paid, of which US$3.15 billion were for just two strategic assets in West Siberia. These two licences, Imilorski and North Rogozhnikovski, contain large oil fields with reserves of almost two billion barrels.
