Managing implementation of innovation results in oil and gas companies

UDK: 334.75(73):622.276
DOI: 10.24887/0028-2448-2018-11-8-15
Key words: innovation, management, research and development (R&D)
Authors: E.O. Timashev (Rosneft Oil Company, RF, Moscow), A.A. Pashali (Rosneft Oil Company, RF, Moscow), V.A. Pavlov (Rosneft Oil Company, RF, Moscow), M.G. Volkov (RN-UfaNIPIneft LLC, RF, Ufa)

This work presents possible approaches to managing development and implementation of innovations in oil and gas companies. It describes the milestones in the technological development history of the USSR oil and gas industry and in the organization of research management in global science. There are three approaches to innovations management presented, including corporate research, start-up projects and grants and open market innovations.

Today the fundamental problem of science is the lack of 'one size fits all' mechanisms aiming to achieve practical results and their implementation. A similar problem is found in most modern methods of innovation management. Multiply examples of seemingly successful startups delivered overnight shift the focus away fr om key problems in high-tech innovation management.

Any attempts to manage innovations on a market basis, startups, etc. are inefficient for challenging projects, since market feedbacks do not work for rather long initiation and completion times here. The primary production facilities are basically associated with energy giants, therefore only here the applied science can develop and breakthrough take place in the long term perspective. The reason is that for high-quality industrial innovations very specific tasks should be formulated and predictable financing provided.

To maximize the effect of innovation and carry out breakthrough research, there should be an incentive mechanism for long-time strategic feedbacks where a researcher is initially well informed about production problems, as well as interested in the practical use of R&D results. This is especially true for the oil and gas industry where a typical life cycle for the development of an asset or technology, may take decades.

The innovation management system of Rosneft Oil Company is described at the end of this article, wh ere an innovative project is presented as an organized chain of problem-oriented activities from initiating a scientific research to practical implementation of its result.
