Inauguration of Vladimir Putin this May was followed by reformatting of the Russian government and the system of executive power in general.

These changes seem to be cosmetic, as the PM and many ministers preserved their seats. However, HR novelties are quite significant, and they directly concern the oil and gas sector.

The reshuffle has not finished yet – the mop-up and structural changes still continue in some ministries. Yet, main players have already taken their seats, and it is possible to draw the first results of reformatting of the system administrating the oil and gas industry.

The report gives answers to the following questions:

  • Why has Dmitry Medvedev remained in charge of the Cabinet?
    • What is his new ‘contract’ with Vladimir Putin, and what sacrifices the new old PM had to make?
  • Why has Dmitry Kozak become a new supervisor of the fuel and energy sector?
    • What role will he play?
    • What powers he has received from Putin?
  • What does Anton Siluanov’s new status of the first deputy PM mean for the sector?
    • How has it changed the taxation discourse?
  • New HR and organizational decisions in the energy ministry after formation of the new Cabinet
    • What does the departure of deputy energy minister Kirill Molodtsov to the Russian presidential executive office mean?
    • Will he manage to restart the work of the presidential commission for FES strategic development and environmental security?
  • What is behind the appointment of Dmitry Kobylkin as minister of natural resources and environment?
    • What conclusions can be made following the first HR and structural decisions of the new minister?
  • How has the Arctic supervision system changed with Yury Trutnev becoming responsible for it, and with Yevgeny Ditrikh becoming transportation minister?
    • How can the latest personnel changes in the ministry be interpreted?
  • Companies that have won, and companies that have lost as a result of new appointments in the government
  • New lines of administrative contradictions in the new system managing the sector
    • For how long will the new Cabinet stay?
