The main economic task of subsoil assets use is the development and substantiation of an effective taxation system that meets the development strategy of the oil and gas industry. Researchers identify the following necessary signs of an effective taxation system: economic efficiency, progressiveness, flexibility. It is seen that the economic approach considered in the article, based on the above provisions, is a methodological indication for drawing up technological schemes and projects of hydrocarbon fields development. The approach and the computer system developed on this basis make it possible to more qualitatively determine the optimal development options for the fields.

 

Keywords: economic evaluation; investment oil and gas project; economic-mathematical method; design solutions.

The article presents the main results of the research work conducted to analyze the estimation methodology of oil and gas business cost in the Russian Federation. by applying the method of economically value added (EVA). In addition to the methodology, the study considers the merits and demerits as well as the specifics associated with application of this cost evaluation method. The methodology presented in this article allows to conclude, that this method can be used to evaluate Russian companies. It should be noted that the method of economically value added (EVA) more visibly reflects the cost of modern companies due to the use of more factors that determine the business. The article presents a comparative calculation of the cost of a large company engaged in oil and petroleum products transportation by two methods: the discounted cash flow method (DCF) and the method of economically value added (EVA). The results of the comparison make it possible to conclude that this method is applicable to the domestic companies’ evaluation and the results obtained by this method of estimation are more accurately reflect the value of the company.

 

Keywords: results of research work; economically added value; modern methods of business cost evaluation of; oil and gas business; EVA; DSF; invested capital; finance; discounting; company.

The development of inefficient (from the economic point of view) hydrocarbon reserves will fail without tax stimulation. This refers to such categories of projects as development of highly water-flooded objects, hard-to recover reserves and generally to those fields that are at the stage of declining production.

In conditions of the fiscal trend of the Russian taxation system, introduction of mechanisms of indirect taxation stimulation is of high urgency.

The article substantiates and estimates the necessary benefits amount that will provide economic stimulation of EOR application at such deposits. This will significantly support the declining production in old fields.

 

Keywords: oil production; oil production incentivization; methods of enhanced oil recovery (MEOR); ASP technology; taxation of the oil industry.

Flexible methodologies application makes business processes faster, a company more flexible and able to rapidly adapt to internal and external challenges. To follow the quick rates of development and to use the modern methods of management, companies have to change the existing budgeting, controlling and motivations systems. The article analyzes the traditional and modern oil and gas project management systems as well as gives recommendations on their application aimed to increase the quality of project management.

Modern economy development is based on knowledge. Company`s success today mainly depends on the ability to create, develop and practically implement knowledge as well as to introduce intelligent information products.

These problems were solved by setting of corporate educational systems. There appeared an objective necessity in the development and implementation of marketing strategies for corporate educational systems.

Today's socio-economic conditions make the availability of marketing- and innovative-oriented personnel development concepts an essentially necessary condition of productive work. This is an important competitive advantage and safety of the company due to provision of personnel support of management (marketing, etc.) and technological innovation in accordance with the competences (corporate, managerial, technical and professional) as well as thanks to minimization of technological, economic, safe, managerial risks and expenses, a systematic approach to the development of corporate educational systems.

It is reasonable to build an integrated, autonomous, decentralized, scientific-educational and innovative-production model in the legal status of the Venture Corporate University (VCU) with a network of engineering-technical and engineering centers, business "incubators" and small innovative enterprises, non-commercial organizations (bureaus, communities, agencies – all in the status of non-commercial partnerships), staff clubs (professional and other interests).

 

Keywords: corporate educational system; models of educational servicing; systematic approach to education; model of Venture Corporate University; comparative characteristics of behavior of Venture Corporate University model; corporate University; business (venture) type of the University behavior.

The article dwells on the principle of measurement of works during wells testing. The duration of wells development up to the application of modern technologies used to enhance oil recovery and wells development is compared with the duration and the list of works which are currently executed. The reasons for growth of well testing works intensity are also given. The article considers the urgent problem of increase of wells testing teams’ technological breaks due to the technological process complexity. A method of organization, accounting and regulation of works on wells testing, simultaneously performed by one team at several wells, with the participation of economic and industrial services of an enterprise in the process is proposed. An effective procedure of technological operations standardization during wells testing is implemented. This method allows to minimizing unproductive working time, thus reducing the cost of personnel labor and increasing labor productivity. The method of calculation of the number of teams required to carry out the work during a certain period of time is presented in the article.

 

Keywords: work measurement; labor organization; system of work measurement; functions of work measurement; wells testing; technological breaks; job task; software for work standardization automation.

The article presents the main results of the regional innovation system research in the Udmurt Republic which served the basis to structure the problematic situation and the objectives of innovating activity management in one of the RF subjects. The organizational model of the regional innovation system and the factor model of the regional efficiency evaluation of technological innovations are proposed. The proposed factor model can be considered as a methodological tool to quantify the effectiveness of technological innovations within the framework of implementation of the state innovation policy in one of the RF subjects.

"UNFAVORABLE COMPLEMENTARITY"
IN THE RUSSIAN-CHINESE ECONOMIC RELATIONS
AND ITS CONSEQUENCES (p. 43)

The article presents a critical analysis of contemporary Russian-Chinese economic relations with a special emphasis on their declared "complementarity". It argues that "complementarity", which in theory should facilitate their cooperation, in the context of Russia-China relations turns out to be a source of problems, which affect various aspects of the bilateral interactions. The established model of complementarity fosters the consolidation of labor unfavorable division between Russia and China, thus generating complex geopolitical motivations, weakening Russian-Chinese partnership. Overcoming of this "unfavorable complementarity" requires change of the model of Russian-Chinese economic integration and elaboration of an innovative industrial police by Russia that would allow Russia to break away from its "comparative advantage of backwardness." Positive shifts in this realm are possible, but they can happen only gradually and will require political will to swim against the dictate of the current market motivations.

 

Keywords: economic complementarity; Russian-Chinese relations; energy resources; Russian-Chinese trade; Russia; China.
