The Russian oilfield service market has undergone sweeping changes over the past year. While earlier, the main drivers of developments were the depletion of easily accessible hydrocarbon resources and the need to develop tight reserves using innovative technology, recently the geopolitical factor has taken front and center stage. 

The embargo laid by the US and EU on supply of cutting-edge technologies and equipment for the Russian upstream sector is dramatically transforming the domestic oilfield service market. In the foreseeable future foreign contractors are likely to be replaced by either oilfield service units belonging to the Russian vertically integrated oil companies (VIOC) or independent contractors from Russia or Asia. The recent termination of cooperation between Gazprom Bureniye and Halliburton due to the imposed ban is as a highly demonstrative example. 

Another illustration is the recent actions of Rosneft, which acquired in June a part of Weatherford’s drilling and well workover assets in Russia and later signed a strategic agreement with North Atlantic Drilling, passing the latter around 150 drilling rigs and signing a long-term contract for their usage. Thus, Rosneft seeks to ensure access to the essential technologies amid the current geopolitical uncertainty. 

The technological sanctions imposed against the Russian O&G industry will also service as a powerful stimulus for development of the domestic oilfield service market. The Russian companies have been confronted with the vital need to raise their competitive capacity to strengthen their market positions. In those segments where the Russian players fail to come up with advanced technologies, a market redistribution may take place in favour of Asian contractors, for which the current situation also provides new opportunities. 

RPI has published studies on the Russian Oilfield Services Companies since 2005. The company’s experts have been closely tracking all the changes that have taken place in the industry and have employed the knowledge base and expertise accumulated to compile and prepare the new materials. 

This study contains updated information on the production facilities, key customers, areas of activity of Russian oilfield services companies, as well as their operating and financial performance. The report has also been revised to include sections regarding the reaction of companies to the sanctions imposed by the international community against the Russian oil and gas industry. 

The analysis in the study has been carried out in the context of major OFS companies: independent contractors; companies that are part of oilfield service holdings and VIOCs; international service companies operating on the Russian market. Overall, this report is a supplement to the earlier issued Russian Oilfield Services Market, which focuses on market analysis from the standpoint of customers. 

Each company profile in this study covers the following: 
• Company overview 
• Structure of the company (main production divisions) 
• Areas of activity 
• List of services provided 
• Stock of main production equipment 
• Main customers 
• Production capacities (as of year-end 2013) 
• Financial indices (as of year-end 2013) 
• Proposed response measures vis-à-vis external market challenges 

The study Russian Oilfield Services Companies is a unique product, providing the most up-to-date information on the OFS companies operating on the domestic market. This product could be a valuable tool to market players in the strategic planning process, allowing them to gain the clearest possible picture of the competitive environment, assess their positions from the vantage point of comparative analysis, obtain objective parameters to gauge the results of their activity and better evaluate all possible risks in light of the current geopolitical environment. 

In addition to oilfield services companies, this study could be of interest to E&P companies, enabling them to more thoroughly study the range of contractors that provide the required services. 

Investors on the market could find the information in this report necessary to examine whether it is reasonable to make investments as well as to mitigate the risks of subsequent investments or size up the potential for M&A deals.

RPI would like to bring to your attention a new optional module to the company’s report devoted to oilfield service companies operating in Russia. 
The module contains profiles of Asian service companies that could potentially enter the Russian oilfield services market in the near future.

Each company profile includes the following information: 
• Company overview 
• List of services provided 
• Main customers 
• Activity in Russian or plans to enter the Russian market 
• Information on the legal entity registered in Russia (if any) 
• Contact data 
The materials in this module can help OFS companies operating in Russia to assess their individual positions in terms of comparative analysis with Asian contractors and devise a strategy for future development in case competition heats up on the Russian OFS market. 

Aside from oilfield service companies, the information provided in the module could be of interest to oil producers, offering them the opportunity to study in greater detail the range of potential contractors from Asia, for which entering the Russian market has become a priority.
