At present, Russian oil companies are making great efforts in the field of optimum rational consumption of energy in fields, it led to increase of energy efficiency as a Russian oil and gas production as whole, and as individual companies in particular. According to these calculations, the energy efficiency of oil production in Russia varied for different producing companies, and in 2012 was in the range 20-35.

Keywords: oil production, gas production, light oil, energy efficiency, energy audits, EROI.
