    Rosneft and BP

    Why Their Big Arctic Deal Failed

  • Diamonds in the snow. Did you notice them scattered on the ice floes pictured on our cover? OGEs Chief Designer Peter Degtyarev crafted the image as a metaphor that speaks to the wealth that lies beneath the ice and even further beneath the sea bottom.

    We are focusing our July-August issue on the offshore and the search for these hidden trea-sures. This issue of OGE will be distributed at two offshore conferences, Russian Artic Offshore CIS in St. Petersburg and Offshore Europe. Visit www.oilandgaseurasia.com and click the Events sec-tion for more information.

    It is at conferences like these that decision makers and technical specialists exchange ideas on how best to develop these subsea riches. The environment in which they work is extreme and the technologies needed to conquer them are com-plex and expensive.

    Our cover story is an inside look at what went wrong with Rosnefts attempt to partner with BP on Russian Arctic projects. We know the deal went wrong and we know why. BP and TNK-BP are family and they quarrel among themselves a lot. Unfortunately these family quarrels happen a lot in Russian business and all too often they are interpreted outside of Russia as anti-foreign investment.

    Thats not true. TNK-BP was sticking up for its contractual rights. And now Rosneft is looking for new partners. And top of the list are the Chinese. Rosneft is talking with CNPC, Sinopec and CNOOC, but also with Exxonmobil, Shell, and the Indian nation-

    al oil company ONGC, and Brazils national oil company Petrobras. As OGE quotes Rosneft president Eduard Khudainatov: The whole world is interested in the Arctic.

    Rosnefts immediate objective in working with a foreign partner in the Arctic is to legitimize the assets it acquired from the nationalization of YUKOS. Concluding an agreement with a brand name in the global oil and gas industry would require a level of due diligence that would disperse the cloud that hangs over the YUKOS deal.

    But the real thing to watch, in my opinon, is the prospect of the Russian state selling off control of Rosneft sometime in the next few years. Such a development would open the door to a foreign company actually owning assets in the Russian Arctic.

    Times are changingWe continue this global theme into the technology section this month with a

    guest technology article from Vitaly Chernikov, an engineer with Lufkin Industries. Though Russian operators favor the ESP as an artificial lift solution far more than their colleagues outside of Russia, when it comes to heavy oil, beam pumping units are the best. There is plenty of heavy oil in Tatarstan, Krasnodar and Komi where Russian operators do use beam pumping units. In his contribution to Oil&Gas Eurasia, Chernikov gives readers a wider perspective with information on how high technology equipment, such as Lufkins Mark II pumping units were able to resolve artificial lift problems in Venezuela.

    Finally, Id like to put in a plug yet again for the SPE Arctic & Extreme Environments Conference & Exhibition October 18-20 in Moscow. Dont forget that Oil&Gas Eurasia is the official publication of the event and well be also producing the show daily newspaper and the official exhibition catalogue. Visit oilandgaseur-asia.com and click on the SPE banner.

    Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of the summer. We look forward to meeting you on the conference trail in September and October. In addition to the offshore events men-tioned above, youll find Oil&Gas Eurasia at events in West Siberia in September including Tyumen and Surgut, also the EPC downstream technical conferences that occur each year in Moscow. And of course there is KIOGE in early October.

    See yall there.
