Brief History

The Founding and the Financial Struggles

Rosneft was founded in 1993 as a government-owned enterprise, managing assets that were previously owned by Rosneftegaz. Two years later, after the Order of the Government of Russia No. 971, Rosneft became an open joint-stock company. The following years, especially between 1998 and the 90’s, the enterprise struggled both financially and operationally burdened by the Russian Financial Crisis, a fierce competition and an extremely decreased production.

The Resurgence and Expansion

In the 2000’s, Rosneft made its comeback with a new list of objectives and acquisitions. In 2002, it purchased the Krasnodar Oil and Gas Company and received a license to develop the Sakhalin-V project. One year later, it acquired the Northern Oil Company and received the license for the development of the Sakhalin-III project. In a matter of years, Rosneft became the leading oil company of Russia in terms of production and in 2007 – it produced 100 million barrels of oil, accounting for 20% of Russia’s output at the time.


In 2016, the company hit another milestone, as it set another record in hydrocarbon production, having recovered over 265 million ton of oil equivalent, 4.3% above the 2015 level; while liquid hydrocarbon production amounted to 210.0 million tons. The enterprise is also one of the largest independent gas producers in Russia, as its total gas production was 12.3 bcm in 2010 and the leader of Russian oil refining, with 13 large oil refineries located in key regions within the country and active ownership in oil refining assets from Belarus, India, Germany, and Ukraine.
