Till 2020 Russian oil and gas companies will spend 8-10 milliard rubles for import substitution. It is expected that till this time Russia will be able to substitute technologies on horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, difficult reserves, equipment on shelf projects and LNG-projects.

As he notes, responsible companies were defined – Rosneft, Gazprom, «Gazprom Neft», Sibur, LUKOIL, Surgutneftegaz.
It is planned that till 2016 Russia will be able to substitute technologies on horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, till 2018 – on difficult reserves and software, till 2020 – equipment for shelf projects and LNG-projects. In the first quarter of this year it is planned finally to define problematic points of technologies in fuel and energy complex. Till September it is planned to define who and for what direction will be responsible. Also the list of projects, which will be supervised by the Ministry for energy, will be coordinated.

As we should note that the USA and Europe prohibited deliveries of equipment and services for deep water prospecting and extraction of oil, work in the Arctic and fields with shale oil to the Russian Federation because of reuniting of Russia and the Crimea and also in connection with the situation in Ukraine. After imposing of technological sanctions the Russian government called domestic companies to take the course to import substitution.
