Igor Sechin Made a Key Speech at the Conference “Power Bridge Russia – Japan”

In his speech the Head of Rosneft expressed an opinion that the dialogue in the energy area can radically change the level of partnership between Russia and Japan. Igor Sechin noted to the audience that, notwithstanding active investment actions of Japanese companies, the efficiency of these actions is limited: "The efficiency of Japanese investments (alternative to those in Russia) is mostly very low. From what we know in the last 3 yeast Japanese firms faced almost 600 bln yen of write downs (around 6 bln USD) because of bad investments in projects associated with hard-to-recover hydrocarbons in US and Canada, and also because of unsuccessful projects in the North Sea. And this had to be done in a period of high oil prices! De-facto IRR for international upstream projects of INPEX by the end of 2014 was 3.1% (Wood Macikenzie estimates). This is around 4 times less than a standard revenue ratio."
