The provision of professional services to the oil and gas sector is one of FBK's major industry specializations. We implemented our first large-scale project consisting of the control function and a limited audit at Gazprom in 1997. We also carried out instructions from the Federal Agency for Property Management, which became the first stage in the development of fruitful cooperation with Russia's largest enterprise in the industry.
We have now accumulated over 17 years of experience in working with the oil and gas industry and completed hundreds of successful projects for major oil and gas companies - perfect proof of FBK's reputation and professionalism. Continuous interaction with the industry's leaders in implementing audit and consulting projects means that we are always fully aware of the current problems facing the energy sector.
In 2002, FBK set up a specialized unit – the Fuel and Energy Audit Department. The Department's experts audit various oil and gas companies and are involved in the provision of audit-related services. We have developed an extensive methodological framework that defines different aspects of our work when providing services specifically to the fuel and energy sector.
Our clients include major companies such as: Gazprom, Rosneftegaz, Rosneft, Transneft, Novatek and others, to whom we provide services in auditing, legal consulting, IFRS, accounting consulting and training seminars.
In the ranking of Russia's largest audit and consulting groups, compiled by Expert RA, FBK has for many years been the undisputed leader in terms of revenue from the provision of services to the companies in the oil and gas sector.
