Russia without secrets?

40
Since the end of last week, we have no secrets related to hydrocarbon reserves. It would seem, why reveal your cards to those who are accustomed to cheat? But in the current situation it was much more effective to open up. Why? Everything in order.


Russia without secrets?


After the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed the decree on removing secrecy from information about what hydrocarbon resources Russia possesses, the Ministry of Natural Resources provided information on state reserves of oil and natural gas dissolved in oil.

The data of the Ministry of Natural Resources are as follows: oil reserves in the C1 category are 17,8 billion tons, in the C2 category - 10,2 billion tons. Gas reserves by category С1 are 48,8 trillion cubic meters, by category С2 is 19,6 trillions cubic meters. To begin with, we will clarify the main difference between the presented categories.

The C1 category corresponds to: a) explored deposits, b) explored deposits within the identified part, c) a section near the first well with an industrial inflow on the identified reservoir.

The C2 category corresponds to: a) identified deposits in the intermediate and upstream drilling formations at the explored or developed site, b) deposits in untested formations of individual domes of multi-domed sites.

The Minister of Natural Resources, Sergey Donskoy, even before the data on hydrocarbon reserves in Russia were declassified on the basis of a government decree approved by President Putin, declaring that declassification would give a significant impetus to investment in the Russian economy, and would also lead Russia to from the first places in terms of ownership of oil and gas.

The average Russian may not understand what it means to “lead Russia to one of the first places in terms of ownership of hydrocarbon volumes.” Are we not in the first positions?

So the fact of the matter is that lately everyone who is not lazy has been engaged in assessing hydrocarbon reserves in Russia, building their conclusions, if not from scratch, then definitely on dubious arguments. Foreign appraisers unanimously claimed that Russian mineral resources are not as complete as Moscow claims. BP, which announced that Russia had moved to second place in the world in terms of natural gas reserves and as much as eighth place in oil reserves, succeeded more than others in assessing the state of Russian hydrocarbon resources. On the basis of what theoretical and practical calculations the experts from British Petroleum conducted their research, it is not known, and it’s just not realistic to imagine that these studies could be carried out objectively in relation to Russia. It is obvious that the published rating from BP "fall" of Russia has a misinformation nature, the purpose of which is quite understandable. This goal is to pull investors away from projects to develop deposits in Russia and to deprive the Russian economy of a substantial percentage of profits.

International economic agencies have indeed recorded a decline in investment activity in the Russian hydrocarbons market after the publication of a “study” conducted by BP. And if it were not for the decision to “open up” the curtain of real Russian oil and gas reserves, then the country's economy would continue to receive less money from the hydrocarbon sector, with all the consequences. And there are a lot of issues, considering that the Russian financial system is still tightly linked to the prices of oil and gas.

As soon as the data from the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources became publicly available, the price profile on the hydrocarbon market shifted to the side, which today is beneficial for the Russian budget. For the first time in the past few months, prices for a barrel of “black gold” approached the 110 dollars mark. At the same time, several long-term contracts for the development of offshore fields were concluded. For obvious reasons, such a situation was not included in the plans of Western "partners" whose financial interests were trying with all their might and trying to defend the information (or rather, disinformation) service of BP.

It should be noted that the Russian Government has declassified data on hydrocarbon reserves, which (data) correspond to the figures for January 2012. Meanwhile, over the past year and a half, significant progress has been made in the area of ​​effective exploration financing, which led to the discovery of several large oil and gas fields, the development of which will be significantly cheaper than the development of deposits discovered at the same time, for example, in Canada. By the way, the publication of declassified data led Russia from the 8-th place (according to BP) to the third place in the world in terms of proven oil reserves. Only Venezuela and Saudi Arabia remained ahead. Data on proven gas reserves again allowed Russia to gain a confident first position in the world. The same BP, according to its ingenious calculations, not so long ago gave Russia second place in gas reserves, putting Iran in first place, for which the world's "democratizers" continue to have far-reaching plans.

Now we will touch the question accompanying the accepted resolution. And is it necessary to reveal all the cards in front of our Western "friends", or is it enough to show the trump ace, and on what? An unequivocal answer to this question is very difficult to give. There are several difficulties here. First, we will not be so naive as to think that the Ministry of Natural Resources has received a distribution list to announce Russian hydrocarbon reserves to the nearest barrel of oil and a cubic meter of gas. Secondly, in the “declassification” itself there are many variants of which side to declassify, and which side to hold under the said neck. You just need to not give a reason for competitors to relax, and for this all means are good. Well, if BP has a tendency to explicitly juggling facts to solve its own problems, then why should Russian companies not go the same way ...

And this path consists not only in, let's say, flexible lifting of the “secret” heading from the volumes of Russian hydrocarbon deposits, but also in possible “estimates” of reserves in other countries. You can, for example, “estimate” gas reserves in Qatar, by announcing that the country is on the verge of a gas crisis. They will understand for a long time, but during this time you can try to lure investors from the Qatari market to your side, provide data about cloudless prospects on the Russian market ... Investors are superstitious people - it’s enough noise to redirect their capital to places they don’t have time to respond hydrocarbon decline prophets.

In general, the declassification of the volume of reserves of Russian hydrocarbons is hardly worth treating as something smelly. With a reasonable approach in this muddy water (well, or, if you will, oil), with all the words about the removal of secrecy, you can catch a weighty fish, which will not be superfluous for the Russian economy. The main thing is that with all those volumes of oil and gas promulgated, not to incur the world "democratization" ...

    There is such a thing as "undiscovered reserves" and here you can "encrypt" whatever you want with them. Given the scale of Russia and the poorly explored expanses ... wink And I don’t care where Russia reserves, the main thing is that Russian companies extract and replenish the Russian budget, and not give foreigners to the mercy

      Obviously, the published rating from British Petroleum Russia’s “fall” has obviously misinformation character whose purpose is understandable. This goal is to draw back investors from field development projects in Russia and take away the Russian economy a substantial percentage profit.


      An industrial war is going on, both for markets and for buyers. "À la guerre comme à la guerre" - "In war, as in war." With intelligence, counterintelligence, information, disinformation and other attributes of this dirty and murky business. Moreover, when it comes to such money. But the world will now breathe freely and will be able to freely acquire the aforementioned hydrocarbon benefits from Russia, without squinting its eyes towards the stronghold of the world crap and its "foggy" ally. And this is already very sehr gut. So now, looking at Russia, not only Saakashvili will have to chew a tie, but also his overseas "roof". Amen...

        Well, it’s not so simple here - migrant workers have already tightly wedged into various sectors of the economy, it will be problematic to refuse their services. It seems the simplest solution is to expel all migrant workers outside the Russian Federation, then it’s business. But not so simple. If you do it all in one fell swoop, the situation may arise that, for example, many builders will stand up until they find a replacement, while they agree on the size of the salary (here migrant workers are unrivaled, some may not even pay), time will pass. And time is simple, and simple is loss. And again, migrant workers are mainly attracted as laborers and laborers. I do not think that today there are a sufficient number of Russians who are ready to work in the place of migrant workers. But this is my opinion, I could be wrong ..

    Ksati, Putin is good at this, over the past six months he has brought the Americans (and the whole West, by the way) to hysterics - the S-300 was either sent, or not sent, Snowden will be given, then not given away ... now with supplies - then a little, then enough (and it will be necessary - we will add more). Obama is hysterical, calls Putin at night: "Vova, don't ruin, give Snowden ... The coolest thing is that all Snowden's resources are now in our hands, Snowden promised to be silent, which means that the United States is no longer on his hook. , and we have )))))

    "... declassification will give a significant impetus to the inflow of investments into the Russian economy."
    How much can you chew on this liberal nonsense! No "investment" will flow to Russia - just like water will not flow upwards. Remember A. Parshev - not the same climate in Russia, this is the coldest country. Investing other people's money in geological exploration and production of hydrocarbons will result in the EXPORT of these hydrocarbons. Zapadentsy what - will they pump oil for US in Eastern Siberia?
    Moreover, why invest in Russia, which itself invests in Big Football and Sochi-2014, in American "securities" and Eurobonds ??? Or will we re-equip the army for "investments"?
    To be honest, there are no more words - how this "power of lawyers" got it. Russia is a SELF-SUFFICIENT country that has EVERYTHING. It is enough not to squander EVERYTHING - and no EXTERNAL investment is REQUIRED !!!

      From the point of view of the philistine - yes. Have but:
      1. Technology.
      2. Investing as a thread will increase the dependence of foreign capital on us.
      3. A favorable investment climate is an indicator of a powerful economy - we gain credibility and additional political weight.
      4. Another source of foreign exchange earnings.
      5. Jobs, and exchange of experience. Our own business is not actively invested in our country.
      A competent economist will write more.
      I believe that the move is more likely to be politically advantageous, but there are economic benefits as well.

        on points 2 and 3:
        Popular wisdom says: Whoever dines for a girl dances her. Translated into economic terms, this means that the pursuit of investment is nothing more than the rejection of sovereignty. Since it provides for the most favored nation treatment not so much for one’s own country as for notorious foreign investors. Which, in turn, invest money only in those industries that are beneficial to them, and exactly within the limits that they need - and the profit is safely taken to their foreign land. And they can’t be forbidden, since investments will stop right there. A vicious circle is obtained.
        Therefore, it is not worth dwelling on the "investment climate" - the Union, as I recall, could easily do without it. And the fact that it collapsed is largely due to Humpback's attempts to "please the West." Liked, yeah ... still hiccups.
        according to claim 4:
        Russia possesses almost all possible resources; to make a finished product out of them is a matter of technology and desire. That is, it is realistic to get everything you need without any currency there, and for the purchase of certain technologies and materials, profits from the sale of energy resources will be quite enough. Which, unlike cut paper, have a very real value.
        And on the last point: it is quite possible for your own business to block the possibility of withdrawing money "over the hill", and no execution articles are needed - it is enough to prohibit work with offshore companies, but in the European Union or the States, businessmen themselves do not have to, the taxes are too uncomfortable there ) We'll have to spin money at home - creating those very jobs, and investing in our own economy. Just everything.
        But alas ... those in power are themselves, in the first place, are not interested in such an approach. For the greatness of the country was once later for the people, and the account in a Swiss bank is now for itself.
        Sadly, in general ...

          I agree that you can't get hung up on investments. I want to like the West even less. But! "Investing" is not just about "financing." Another exchange of experience, experts (far from politics and ready for dialogue, even at conference venues, even live).
          Let's remember the Renault Nissan alliance and the deal with AvtoVAZ? Good cooperation. All remain to the benefit.

            Apparently, you poorly understand what it is all about - offshore.
            If the earned money were simply stored there, no questions would have arisen for them. That's just the offshore companies themselves, in which case, they would have turned out to be useless to anyone. Their meaning is tax evasion. Roughly speaking, the office operates all over the world, but the central office is registered in some Cayman Islands, respectively, and the office pays taxes there. Or does not pay at all - under the local legislation it is not important.
            And actually the storage of money ... if the office earned it in Russia, then let it pay the tax in Russia - and keep its savings anywhere, even in Zanzibar, at least under a pillow, at least put it in a three-liter bank and bury it under the fence. There will be no particular harm from this to anyone.

      I wonder if "Dimon" registered its "NGO-Government of the Russian Federation" as a "foreign resident", or not? If not, then AGAIN he violates the LAW (although he is no stranger). Most of the work of his henchmen goes directly to the detriment of Russia, no matter what kind of chair he is sitting in (in the presidential or prime minister's). It is hard to believe that an official of such a level who does his best to harm Russia and spit on its citizens (the Caucasian war does not count) is not a paid "agent of influence."
      What else to expect from a person who has "presented" the TRAITOR with the highest award of the State! And Dimon awarded "Gorby" - precisely for the betrayal of the Country, which he led !!!
      It’s interesting, but is Putin “on the drum” what this “gadget” is doing in Russia, or is he on a “long tour of one distant, distant galaxy,” and careless servants don’t report to him? request

      I do not think that yesterday’s secrets will affect security, but salivation and grasping movements will strengthen.

      This is for the "strengthening" of inner peace. There is no result and it is not visible .. But something must be done and said .. So it is necessary to carry a "blizzard".

    In general, declassifying the volume of Russian hydrocarbon reserves is hardly worth considering as something smelling bad.

    Against the background of the great stench, something "foul smelling" no longer plays a role.

    In fact, this data was not so secret. They simply were not published openly. And all these figures are, in principle, relative.

    Quote from the article: ... "And this path consists not only in, let's say, flexible removal of the" secret "stamp from the volumes of Russian hydrocarbon deposits, but also in possible" estimates "of reserves in other countries. You can, for example," to assess "gas reserves in Qatar, announcing that the country is on the brink of a gas crisis. It will take a long time to figure it out, and during this time you can try to lure investors from the Qatari market to your side, provide data on cloudless prospects in the Russian market ... Investors are superstitious people - the slightest noise is enough for them to redirect their capital to places that the prophets of hydrocarbon decline did not have time to respond to "....
    I think that our politicians did the right thing ... Let the same States scratch their turnips: even though they call Russia a raw materials appendage, Russia still has enough raw materials, but others still have a question. Just to make our gasoline cheaper in Russia, and to sell non-crude oil over a hill, that would be great. But for this it is necessary to build modern refineries ...

    You can make a lot of noise about giving out secrets, but without understanding why this was done, all this is just a "rustle of nuts", as the great Kurchatov used to say. Let's figure it out first, and then we'll make some noise.

      Absolutely right. First you need to understand why the data was classified. It would be nice to know how matters stand with telling the world the truth from the main "partners". After all, we did not secret them from Bangladesh and San Marino. It would be curious to know for how many years the explored reserves will be enough to satisfy not only the needs of the working people of France and Germany, but also their own people. It is desirable to satisfy the latter at prices lower than other workers. And finally, how exactly those green papers have been used so far, for the sake of acquiring which we are donating resources. How many new enterprises, including agricultural complexes, have been built on them. If the pieces of paper went to the next summit, the Olmipiad and Alekperov's new dacha, it is unlikely that this will bring great happiness to our descendants. (Alekperov's descendants do not count).

      Let's try throw one cube:
      "There can be no talk of any dependence of Germany and the European Union on energy supplies from Russia henceforth - as well as the dependence of Russian energy companies on the European market... There is just a partnership. This was one of the main theses of the speech of the head of the energy concern E.on Johannes Teyssen at the annual press conference of the leadership of the Eastern Committee of the German Economy (Ost-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft, OA) held in Berlin on July 11. "
      "Regulators and politicians in the EU and Germany pose a much greater risk to stable energy supply on the continent at the moment," the head of E.on added polemically. Recently, he has been urging the German government to adjust its course towards the accelerated development of renewable energy -conference in Berlin also criticized some of the provisions of the Third Energy Package of the European Union.

    In the economy, everything is very, very difficult ... In the international, all the more.
    Do not scream in haste, do not chop off your shoulder.
    Yes, investment is primarily a debt. But, first of all, it’s temporarily free money for which it is possible to start production, production, etc., etc. It all depends on the conditions for their use and the amount of bribe (actually, debt) paid for their use.
    The national budget is not bottomless - there is not enough money to implement all possible, profitable, economic projects, and using investments it is possible to create new industries, increase PI production, improve transport infrastructure and service - this is one side of the coin. The reverse (with regard, especially, to our country) is how competently, efficiently these investments work, how much the investment work process is decriminalized ... There is something to think about.
    And so, everything seems to be correct in the article.
    If only not as usual: "It was smooth on paper, but they forgot about the ravines ..."

    These hamster investors are so timid mass that it is worth whispering to someone from the corner: "Russia is running out of gas and oil" and the hamsters in horror create a Brownian movement without really understanding the situation, but the fact that this statement was thrown by BP offended at Russia to anyone not interesting, because hysterics. Everything is right, we need to show that everything is in order. And about the exact amount of stocks, they can hang a whole pan on their ears.

    Complete bins are certainly good ... But for me it is better to attract investors not in development, but in the construction of processing infrastructure. It is necessary to export products and not raw materials. Yes, and then you will not have to spend the profits on import ....

    The question is whether it is necessary to pump out resources from the bowels at such a pace?
    After all, we actually can’t now digest that foreign currency proceeds which in the form of taxes goes to the budget.
    Moreover, the profit itself, for the most part, will remain in the offshore, we place foreign exchange reserves there. Record deliveries of oil and gas are knocking down energy prices.
    The picture in the subject ...

    "The same BP, according to its cunning calculations, not so long ago gave Russia the second place in gas reserves, putting in first place Iran, for which the world 'democratizers' continue to have far-reaching plans in place ".

    This is a quote from the article. What are the "far-reaching plans of the" democratizers ", I suppose, is not a secret for anyone. Aha, war, occupation, free siphoning of resources. Does our government really want to invite" democratizers "?

    Russia (unfortunately) does not have FULL sovereignty. And one of the main signs of his absence is there is no "typewriter" of his own.

    What stupid thing? The typewriter is not alone. there are even foundry and stamping machines. And if we take as a basis that trade is an exchange of values, then given the resource potential of Russia, we are the most sovereign state in the world. Not everything is measured in dollars.

    In Russia this is not yet possible and it is still very long. But you can grab the contents of the bowels without privatization. If you know where to grab. One volume of reserves is not enough, you must know where and which ones. We must see what was declassified and in what form.

    why to secret what can be solved very simply: the nationalization of the entire oil and gas industry and the oil industry in particular; big capital from the so-called. investment

    From the statement of the new oligarchs:
    Nah! Nationalize no-zaaaaaa! You don’t understand why it was declassified? Very well! So we ourselves will now take bank loans secured by deposits allocated to us, as it were, for development. With an official certificate from MEDVEDEV ... That means they will give more credit if the state guarantee. The main thing now is to catch the allocation of these fields in time ... but I will share anything and give ... and there these fields will be developed or not ... question sixteenth ... but for that, there will be enough credit for a new yacht ... and a new villa on the shores of the warm sea ... yes, the account will be replenished ... And if a Western bank then picks up the deposits, these are the difficulties of the economy of a developing state ... and credit ... it's real!
    So nationalize n - and - zaaaaaa!

    Very "valuable" conclusion of the author of the article. Let Russia begin to cheat as well as BP. Rave. How can you recommend one of the world's largest states ("nuclear power") the behavior of a shopkeeper.
    The purpose of this article is not clear. Pride? Put a minus.
