The price of oil, which suits Rosneft, does not suit the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District

The head of Rosneft, Igor Sechin, said in an interview with the Austrian newspaper Dei Press that he admits that the oil price could fall to $ 60 per barrel. “I have to say that Rosneft is flexible enough and has a margin; the price of $ 60 suits us too, ”Sechin said. At the same time, as the head of the company noted, in such a conjuncture, some expensive projects will have to be postponed.

At the same time, such forecasts are unlikely to suit the FEFD regions. So, for example, in recent interview EastRussia Tatyana Karpova, deputy chairman of the government of the Sakhalin region, said that the region’s budget was based on the cost of a barrel above $ 90. “It is assumed that the price of a barrel of oil over the next three years will remain at the level of US $ 100. And the exchange rate, despite temporary fluctuations, will rise from 37,7 rubles to a dollar in 2015 to 39,5 rubles to 2017. Such dynamics with a relatively stable level of oil production will ensure the filling of the treasury, ”said Tatyana Karpova EastRussia.

Recall, in terms of fiscal policy, the Sakhalin region is today the only region of the Far Eastern Federal District that is fully self-sufficient and independent of federal budget subsidies.
