Strategic directions of oil production increase are inextricably associated with the development of oil and gas fields, located in the continental shelf. One of the main stages of the offshore fieldsí development is the construction of exploratory wells. The final cost of drilling of one exploration well depends on several factors Ė the depth of the sea, environment-climatic and hydro-meteorological conditions, distance from the shore, the existing infrastructure, the actual depth of the wells, etc., and can reach more than a hundred million USA dollars. Harsh environment-climatic and geological-technical conditions of drilling, the depth of the seas require substantial research and development of adequate scientific, technical, design and organizational decisions both on the design phase and the construction phase of exploration wells. Being extremely capital-intensive, such investment projects should be based on the results of cost-benefit analysis and risk assessment. Therefore, the creation-based approaches to technical and economic assessment of the risks of offshore wells drilling are a very urgent problem.

 

Key words: development of offshore fields; exploration wells; risks in the oil and gas industry; risk assessment; licenses and permits; methods of risk assessment of investment projects.

Today, the development of corporate educational systems goes to the strategic management model, what is caused by markets globalization, radical changes of technologies, changes in the structure of employment and labor market, focusing on owners high profits, fast and continuous organizational changes that are dramatic and long-term.

Strategic management is aimed at long-term results and is based on a constant account of the external environment change, characterized by a great uncertainty. The key to mastering of the organizational changes art and thus to achieving of the corporate progressive advance is the effective, continuous development of its human resources and corporate educational system.

Development strategy of the corporate educational system should include such important elements as formation and implementation of a unified system of strategic management of corporate educational system of the company through continuous education on the basis of a systematic and targeted approach.

The strategic approach to the development of the corporate educational system allows creating a companyís training system of managers and specialists, based primarily not on administrative methods but on economic incentives and social security, bringing together the interests of employees and top-managers of the company to achieve high labor productivity, efficiency of production and management, high quality of products and the best economic results of the company.

 

Key words: strategic management; human resources (human capital); corporate educational system; advanced education of personnel; concept of the corporate educational system.

The wells workover analysis proved the fact that time-period increase of gas wells workovers took place due to additional activities associated with the intensification of the industrial security control and the growing requirements to the realized works quality in terms of a long-time gas fields exploitation.

Increase of the share of complicated wells workovers from the total number of wells workovers is envisaged by the use of sophisticated technologies, equipment and tools as well as variety of the applied technological solutions and compositions, thus in its turn affecting wells workovers cost.

The article considers the method of economic efficiency estimation of oil-gas wells complicated workovers which permits to determine the rationality of new well workover technologies implementation in the changed conditions of gas fields operation.

 

Key words: well; workover; economic efficiency; complicated workovers; labor intensity.

The decision made to choose the optimal management of drilling waste when offshore drilling is an important task for each of the subsoil users. Salvation of the above-mentioned problem can be supported by the detailed analysis of the activity gross value planned for implementation. The article defines the procedure and examines the structure of the gross value, as well as the dynamics of costs categories forming the specified cost, activity of waste management in cases of its implementation onshore (in particular, placement of drilling waste in waste disposal facilities) and in the offshore environment (in particular, implementation of drilling wastes re-injection into the reservoir). The gross value of drilling waste injection into the reservoir was determined depending on the special equipment ownership: its purchase or lease. The dynamics of cost categories forming the gross value was observed for a well design, specified in the article, depending on its remoteness from the supply facility on shore and drilling depths of its bottom.

 

Key words: drilling wastes; technological cycle of wastes; cost structure; cost of drilling waste management.

The present paper demonstrates that in some situation the same function can be outsourced to several providers. Two approaches towards the problemís salvation of the function optimal distribution among outsourcers (based on criteria of maximal quality and minimal cost) are proposed. A mathematical formalization for both approaches to the problem salvation is presented.

The article considers the current state of engineering services market of oil refining industry along with causes and intrinsic factors of contract agreements development aimed at increasing projects implementation efficiency. Unlike the related sectors of FEC (electricity generation, oil and gas production, petrochemical industry), refineries construction and revamping projects have a number of specific aspects that determined extensive use of lump-sum turnkey contracts. A significant role in choosing strategies for cooperation between investors and contractors is played by engineering market structure. It consists mostly of VINCís affiliates, specializing in engineering, and branches of leading foreign contractors. The authors suggest a more defined classification of contract forms and types typical for oil refining as well as compare advantages of complex-type foreign contracts (e. g., EPC, EPCM, etc.). Incorporation of these contracts may increase project execution quality, help meeting working schedule and costs requirements. A forecast for future increase in number of concluded contracts based on EPC-models is introduced, including impact analysis of factors that stimulate the process. There are a few issues that slow down competitive environment formation at the market and consolidation of Russian contractors. Nevertheless, joint efforts of the government, companies and professional organizations lead to improvement in the area of engineering activities and contracting.

 

Key words: engineering services; oil refining; Ň–—-contracts; contract agreements; service market; contract forms; contractors; oil and gas facilities engineering.

The article presents an approach to the definition of indicators for evaluation of primary energy resources of a regionís fuel and energy complex, comprehensively taking into account the state of primary energy resources. The complexity of the approach development is due to the fact that all indicators applied for evaluation of primary energy resources do not exist autonomously but have a large number of interconnections. Evaluation of primary energy resources to provide a regionís fuel and energy complex development should be carried out on the basis of some complex methods application, combining quantitative analysis of the economic, social and environmental indicators and their qualitative assessment that is difficult to formalize. The article discusses the following groups of indicators for evaluation of primary energy resources: economic, technological, energy, social, environmental, and reveals their content.

 

Key words: primary energy resources; fuel and energy complex; indicators of assessment; efficiency.

State-owned enterprises (SOEs) play an important role in the economy of many developing countries. The article considers the subject, poorly-studied in the home literature, of SOEs role in the economy of the Arabian Peninsula states. Sectoral distribution of these companies, their place in the economic development of the Arabian monarchies, the role in the creation and development of new industries and cross-industry clusters are examined. The evolution of the approach of the states of the region to this type of companies is studied. It is shown that the Arabian states continue to rely on SOEs in their development strategies, including creation of such companies in new industries. The article reflects the specificity of these companies interaction with ministries and other state institutions. The role of sovereign wealth funds and other state institutional investors in investing in the shares of public companies is shown. The policy of SOEs of the Arabian Peninsula states on foreign direct investment in order to expand demand or receive new managerial and technological competencies is also studied.

 

Key words: Cooperation Council for the Arabian States of the Gulf (GCC); Saudi Arabia; sovereign wealth funds (SWF); state corporations; state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

The EU energy policy involved formation of the single and competitive European gas market by the end of 2014. The ambitious plans are still far away from the target. The single European gas market is being developed now without setting up time limits. This article sheds light on the main reasons why the target has not been achieved yet. Among these reasons are the low gas markets liquidity and insufficient gas transportation infrastructure development in the Central and Eastern European countries.

 

Key words: EU; gas market; liquidity; gas transportation infrastructure; gas transportation facilities.
