Maintaining Energy Connectivity in an Unstable World

Plenary session

Oil is one of the key primary energy resources in the global fuel and energy balance, and experts predict that it will continue to hold this status until 2040. Nevertheless, the oil industry is currently undergoing a period of structural changes. On the one hand, the instability of the global economy, international conflicts, and the continuation of a policy of trade wars and sanctions are creating excessive volatility in the commodity and financial markets for oil. On the other hand, the development of electric cars and renewable energy sources, the hydrogen economy and the gas motor fuel market, and tightening environmental regulations pose new challenges to the oil market. How well equipped are the current OPEC+ terms of trade to deal with the growing threats to the oil market? How do ‘black swans’ change the composition of the global balance of supply and demand for oil? Is a further consolidation of efforts necessary in order to minimize the effects of black swans? What is the potential for transforming oil trade flows, taking into account the growth in shale production?

Developing Regional Renewable Energy Market Segments in Russia: Retail, Remote Territories, and Microgeneration

Unlike Russia’s mature wholesale renewables market, other market segments are only just picking up steam. Renewable energy is a commercially viable power generation source for isolated power systems, making them a high-priority, promising area of development in Russia's renewable energy sector. Isolated power systems usually get their energy from diesel power plants, which can be switched out for green energy sources. In certain cases, renewable energy may serve as an effective solution for micro-settlements in central Russia that are currently getting their energy from long-distance connections to electric grids. However, despite the gradual improvement in the regulatory framework for wind and solar energy facilities, there are a number of factors that are significantly slowing the regional development of renewables. Households are another promising market segment. The passing of the law on microgeneration will significantly increase the size of the renewables market in Russia and create many new jobs. What regional solutions are needed to support new renewables projects and what additional incentives can be provided to investors? Which risks associated with the development of renewable energy in remote territories and micro-settlements must be considered? Are renewables projects of interest to industrial or small and medium-sized enterprises? Which barriers to developing renewable energy must be tackled first? Which countries’ experiences in developing renewable energy can be applied to Russia?

What Does the Energy Industry of the Future Look Like?

The development of the electric power industry and related industries, as well as consumers’ digitalization, requires the use of both tested and new methods of data processing, the creation of controlled segmentation in the electric power network, and the simultaneous development of the information network and the power grid. Flexible management and control of network operating modes will require the use of high-speed neural networks and other machine algorithms, and possibly even quantum computing technologies. It is evident that the comprehensive management and control of a complex network requires a huge number of factors to be taken into account. Such computation is currently beyond the capability of existing information algorithms. However, the transition to digital control devices and the provision of electricity services will allow for the dynamic control of electricity flows, improving the load parameters of the power generation network. Moreover, the ability to simultaneously transmit data and supply power can open the door to additional benefits in existing arrays, the development of consumer services, and intelligent control systems. What does the energy industry of the future look like? Could the merger of electric power and information networks result in a new community larger than the global Internet? Which technological trends will drive change in the electric power industry?

The Digital Transformation of the Oil and Gas Industry: New Opportunities for Government and Business

In just the past few years, digitalization has become a firmly embedded concept. Russia’s leading oil and gas companies have begun to take active measures to implement smart technologies. This has already had an effect – geological prospecting and well drilling have become more precise, the number of errors made when planning and commissioning industrial facilities has been reduced, and advance warning about possible equipment failure can be given. As a result, both government and business are able to take advantage of new opportunities. The government has the opportunity to use operational data to significantly increase the quality of governance and strategic planning. Business, meanwhile, has a way to optimize its assets and reduce its most significant costs by substantially improving the efficiency of its production and business processes. However, in order to fully unlock the potential of the oil and gas industry’s digital transformation and to achieve a systemic effect from implementing digital technologies, it is essential for government and business to work together. What results can be expected from the digital transformation of the oil and gas industry? What administrative barriers need to be removed in order to aid the development of digital technologies? How do oil and gas companies view their role in this digital transformation? What should the Digital Transformation of the Oil and Gas Industry working group focus on?

Energy of the Future: Technological Solutions for Cities and Regions

The spread of new technologies and devices is transforming the energy and utilities sectors: energy consumption trends are changing and demand for investment in creating new capacities is growing. On the other hand, depreciation and obsolescence of energy infrastructure and increasing security, environmental, and reliability demands on energy systems force city administrations to increase spending on system maintenance. New players and innovative business models (e.g. startups, telecom companies) are entering the energy sector. City and regional administrations are actively searching for new practical and innovative solutions. Moreover, city administrations must create conditions to turn their cities into platforms for testing new technologies and business models, including those within the traditionally budget-intensive segments of the fuel and energy sector. What technologies, solutions, and business models in the fuel and energy sector are most sought after in both cities and regions? How is that demand influenced by Russia's unique characteristics? How can the reliability and security of existing systems be increased and their energy capacities expanded while reducing maintenance costs? What legislative changes are required for the implementation of new solutions and business models? What support must the government provide to stimulate this process? What practical stimulus instruments have already been developed and are being implemented?

Integration of Renewables into the Grid: Best Practices, Challenges and Opportunities across Europe

Over the past few years, energy efficiency and renewable energy have gained increasing interest in the Russian Federation, where there is a consensus that steps have to be taken to control carbon emissions, in line with the Paris Agreement. Lately, a number of legislative initiatives have been adopted to enhance the integration of renewables into the existing framework. At the same time, power feed-in from big industry players and small and medium-sized enterprises as well as surplus energy provided by households can cause significant changes to the grid system. Today, the efficient grid integration of renewables remains a challenging task and a matter of public debate in many countries. How does the grid integration of renewables work in practice? What key regulatory issues need to be addressed and implemented in order to ensure the proper integration of renewables? How can grid stability be ensured while increasing the share of renewables and producing energy in harsh climate conditions? How can grid-connected biomass, wind and solar parks become a reliable and cost-competitive energy source? What challenges do the Russian regions face with regard to the integration of renewable energy into the grid? Can renewables become a significant tool for providing energy in remote off-grid settlements?

Further Regulation of the Russian Power Grid: Target Model and Amendments to the Development Strategy

There are currently a number of unresolved issues acting as constraining factors on the development of the Russian power grid: contradictions in the objectives of Rosseti, a socially responsible and public company; pricing problems in the electric power industry (tariffs, cross subsidization and utility connections); network fragmentation and a high number of local grid operators; depreciation of funds and low levels of automation, digitalization and network visibility. The development of new technologies and a reduction of energy consumption in the distribution system threaten the future development prospects of the power grid. At the same time, the world is entering a fourth phase of energy transition, the fundamental trends of which are: digitalization (transition from analogue, centralized and standardized technologies to digital, distributed and personalized ones); electrification (electric transportation, transition of the heating supply system to electric power); decentralization (development of distributed generation, energy accumulation and storage technologies, energy efficiency, and demand management). These trends and challenges, both external and internal, are bringing changes to the global electric power sector and forcing an overhaul of the Russian power grid. What is the government’s vision of the current situation in the power grid and the coming transformations? What is Rosseti’s role and what are its strategic plans with respect to the ongoing changes (innovative and technological development, digital transformation and diversification of the power grid, support for import substitution, increasing investment attractiveness, etc.)?

EU–Russia Partnership: Opportunities for the Environmental Transformation of the Energy Market

The rapid growth rate of the EU economy since the mid-2010s has led to an unforeseen increase in energy consumption among the member economies. If this trend persists, EU energy consumption levels may continue to increase, and leaders will need to take additional measures to reduce the impact of the energy sector on the environment and climate in the region. As a reliable supplier of energy for the EU, this opens up a number of opportunities for Russia. For this potential to be fulfilled, it will require close cooperation between the two parties. By the same token, innovative products devised by European energy companies can help Russia to achieve the goals of its National Environment Programme and find solutions to the problem of processing non-hazardous and low-hazard waste from the electricity and mining industries. How can Russia help the EU to ensure the environmental transformation of its energy sector? What measures should be taken to expand the energy market between Russia and the EU? How does digitalization change the energy landscape? What role should business play in fostering cooperation? Which sustainable innovative products devised by European companies can be used in Russia? What is the potential for cooperation in energy production, energy efficiency, environmental protection, and non-hazardous and low-hazard industrial waste management? Is transformational change in the energy sector undertaken at the industrial level, or can consumers also contribute to the process?

Stimulating Oil Extraction in the Russian Federation

The objective worsening of conditions for mining, a decrease in the output of new boreholes, and an increase in the water content over the next 15 years will lead to an annual increase in operational expenses and a simultaneous fall in oil extraction. To prevent the fall in investment in the extraction sector, a range of mineral tax benefits and special rates for export duties are being put forward. As of 1 January 2019, a tax scheme has come into effect introducing a windfall profits tax on hydrocarbon production, which is designed to partly take into account the real economics of extraction when imposing taxes. To attract additional investment to the oil extraction sector for 2019–2024 and prevent a reduction in extraction, a roadmap has been developed to implement measures aimed at exploring oil reserves and increasing the volume of oil extraction in the Russian Federation. What are the anticipated results of taking an inventory of oil reserves in terms of the economic efficiency of mining those oil reserves given the current tax conditions? What is the potential for additional extraction and for essential measures to incentivize oil extraction in regions where extraction has traditionally taken place? What incentives for the use of tertiary oil recovery techniques in the oil industry must be implemented to maximize the use of this resource’s potential? Which incentives are essential for mining small deposits?

Investment in the Sustainable Development of the Energy Sector: New Opportunities and Current Obstacles

By 2022, with the launch of the last nuclear power plants built as part of the Capacity Supply Agreement, the first large-scale investment cycle in Russia's modern energy sector will be complete. The goal of modernizing Russia's generating capacities is far from complete, but it now faces new global challenges: the digital revolution, environmental protection, and changing consumer profiles. As such, the market must now determine what development path the industry will take. Will the existing centralized power supply system be preserved, with the domination of traditional energy companies, the preservation of existing network infrastructure (with minimal changes), and the same pools of consumers and consumer profiles? Or will the industry change more noticeably due to rapidly developing technologies in various spheres and modern global trends, with banks serving as key partners in this transformation? What are the main industry- and economy-wide issues that will need to be addressed in this new energy investment cycle? What factors will play a role in determining which development scenario will prevail? What is the investment potential of the industry's development and how are financial institutions preparing? Will the industry continue to undergo widescale changes within the current energy market model or will it need to undergo a complete transformation? What do the government and market participants need to do to create a comfortable climate for the implementation of modern technologies in the creation of new energy sector markets?

The Evolution of Global Benchmarks: New Pricing Trends in International Oil Markets

In partnership with St. Petersburg International Mercantile Exchange

The search continues for the best pricing mechanisms for international oil grades. The amount of oil available for calculating the North Sea Brent Crude is dropping, and trading liquidity at the North Sea ports is decreasing. Production peaks at most oil fields are behind us, and ever more light oil is being imported to Europe from around the world. The issue of the stability and quality of various oil grades is ever more pertinent. The basic methods for calculating the North Sea Dated (Argus Media) and Brent Crude (S&P Global Platts) indices have undergone changes. These indices serve as a benchmark price for most European oil company contracts with consumers. Pricing agencies calculate spot market quotations for physical deliveries, and this market then forms the basis for derivative exchange instruments, including futures. What changes to trading can we expect in the coming years, given the new approaches to pricing? What are the trends and prospects for growth in the international and Russian crude oil markets?

Governing Risks in the Modern World of Energy

In partnership with general partner Rosneft

Phenomenal progress in the development and proliferation of energy efficient technologies, an economic breakthrough in renewable energy production (solar, wind, geothermal, etc.), and changes to behavioural patterns in energy consumption have led to a sharp slowdown in the growth of energy demand across much of the world and a rapid diversification of energy sources in favour of a transition to a low-carbon economy. The scale of the changes being observed today in the energy sector, and especially in IT development, points to a global energy system that has entered a new stage of fundamental transformation. At the same time, what sets this transformation apart is the fact that its driving factors are not just economic but also, and in fact to a greater extent, non-economic. What influence is the global energy transformation having on corporate strategies and risk management principles for energy companies? How can operational and financial risk be reduced and investment stability in energy projects be ensured in an environment of sanctions, highly volatile energy prices and other uncertainties? Could insurance be looked upon as a strategic solution to preserve the financial interests of business? How can digitalization be used as a risk management tool for all stages of the production process? We invite you to discuss this and many other questions during the panel session organized with support of Rosneft. The company pays particular attention to developing continuous, sustainable, and integrated corporate risk management and internal control systems. It allows for proper timely response to internal and external changes, as well as raising the efficiency and productivity.

Environmental Protection in the Coal Industry: Current Solutions

The development of the coal industry in recent decades has led to major changes in natural landscapes and the degradation of vegetation across vast areas. Mining has led to the pollution of the aquatic environment and the atmosphere, as well as a decrease in biological diversity. Dramatic changes to the environment occur over time. They are caused by the excavation to the surface of deep-seated rocks of past geological epochs that are not characteristic of modern landscapes. With increasingly stringent standards for environmental conservation, the market trend towards renewable sources of energy, and information transparency, improvement of production management policies is required, as well as the implementation of working methods in accordance with international standards for sustainable development. This is the key to both the success of coal companies in the global economy and to ensuring the energy security of the Russian Federation. What promising modern technologies are coal mining companies using to protect and preserve the environment and restore biodiversity around mines? What barriers to the successful and effective rehabilitation of the environment exist in the coal industry? What measures should be taken to boost derelict land reclamation and remediate environmental damage in the coal industry?

Power Engineering: Prospects for the Development of High-Capacity Gas Turbines in the Russian Federation

The ability to produce high-capacity turbines is a key goal for Russia’s power engineering industry, marking as it would a significant step forward in guaranteeing the country’s energy security. The use of high-capacity gas turbines for the heat and electric energy combination cycle at thermal power plants would also lead to an improvement in technical and economic performance. However, it is important to bear in mind that developing and manufacturing high-capacity turbines is a complex technical undertaking, which not only involves the turbines themselves, but also other related areas, including materials, metals, casting and forging. The government is therefore taking steps to support the development of manufacturing technology for turbines of this kind. In order to make this development process more efficient and to ensure that demand for turbines remains stable in the future, it is vital to also involve power generating companies, given that they will be the customers of these Russian-made products. This will enable organizations to draw upon the experience of commissioning similar facilities abroad, and to test solutions which may help Russian gas turbines become leaders in the international market. What is the current situation with regards the development of high-capacity gas turbine manufacturing? What additional measures could the government take to support manufacturers? How do power generating companies assess future demand for Russian-produced high-capacity gas turbines? What proposals can power generating companies put forward using the experience of commissioning similar facilities in Russia and abroad? What can be done to facilitate collaboration between manufacturers of energy equipment and the companies using it?
