On-Line Event

 

Russia’s national champions, Gazprom and Rosneft, get priority attention from the Kremlin. But low prices and increased international competition are threatening them. What is needed to keep Russian energy competitive?

 

Gazprom’s and Rosneft’s enormous size and outsized roles in the domestic and global economies means the Kremlin grants them priority attention. At the height of the commodity boom, Russian President Vladimir Putin bragged about them as unstoppable global industry leaders. Now over ten years later, the picture looks quite different. Low prices and increased international competition are threatening Gazprom and Rosneft, yet there’s scant evidence of effort to overhaul them to keep them competitive. What lies in Russia’s energy future, and what is needed to keep Russian energy competitive?

 

The authors of the report, Dr. Anders Åslund, Senior Fellow, Eurasia Center and Steven Fisher, Emerging markets banking and corporate governance professional, present their research on Russia’s national champions. Dr. Agnia Grigas, Senior Fellow, Eurasia Center, joins the panel, and Dr. Edward Chow, Senior Associate, Energy Security and Climate Change Program, Center for Strategic and International Studies, moderates.
