Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights Last updated: October 31, 2017

  • Russia is the world’s largest producer of crude oil (including lease condensate) and the second-largest producer of dry natural gas. Russia also produces significant amounts of coal. Russia’s economy is highly dependent on its hydrocarbons, and oil and natural gas revenues account for more than one-third of the federal budget revenues.
  • Sanctions and lower oil prices have reduced foreign investment in Russia’s upstream, especially in Arctic offshore and shale projects, and they have made financing projects more difficult.
  • Most of Russia’s oil production originates in West Siberia and the Urals-Volga regions. However, production from East Siberia, Russia’s Far East, and the Russian Arctic has been growing.
  • Russia holds the largest natural gas reserves in the world and is the second-largest producer of dry natural gas. The state-run Gazprom dominates the country’s upstream natural gas sector, although production from other companies has been growing.
  • Russia is one of the top producers and consumers of electric power in the world, with more than 240 gigawatts of installed generation capacity. In 2016, gross electric power generation totaled 1,071 billion kilowatthours, and Russia consumed about 900 billion kilowatthours.
