Strong marketing operations - In both the wholesale customers as well as the retail customers in the entire Russia its marketing operations are very strong and because of this fact it has an advantage of a widespread visibility in the market which in turn enables it to penetrate new markets and still expand customer base. 3. Largest retail network - Rosneft is continuously expanding retail network mostly in places of strategic importance, and it is constantly increasing retail sites which includes stores, cafes, car wash areas and service stations for vehicles. Also towards end of 2016 Rosneft had largest network in Russia considering geographical areas covered and filling stations.
Weaknesses1. Drop in the net income of Rosneft - The net income of the company dropped to one third to $1.38 in FY Q2 2016 from the total of 134bn rubles a year which was noticed earlier. For the first half of the year 2016 a whole net income fell to 46 per cent to about Rbs103bn. 2. Reserves concentration in Western Siberia - Upon observing closely, it is noticed that most of the Oil and Gas reserves of the company are in the west Siberia region.

This factor if not paid enough attention has the hazardous potential leading to the severe repercussions on the financial performances of the company in case of occurrence of any geo-political risks from this western Siberian region.
Opportunities1. Modernisation and expansion of Company’s export terminals - Rosneft is competitive because of its own export terminals in Tuapse, De-Kastri and Nakhod making Rosneft’s export operations a highly efficient one, improving planning optimizing costs. This feature gives Rosneft a competitive position and so it should work more upon implementation of expansion and modernization proposals at the mentioned terminals thereby ensuring about their capacity which could match up with the export needs of future. 2. Expansion of operations in other parts of the world - As of now the Oil and Gas reserves are concentrated mostly in Western Siberian region. This fact may result in significant dangers of repercussions upon finances of Rosneft if there are any geo-political risks from these region in future.
Threats1. Weak oil prices prevalent - The fall in prices of oil since the mid-2014 year has impacted the Russian economy very severely, which is now in conditions of deep recession, despite the fact that the latest GDP data has shown some signs of improvement. Russia’s economy got shrunk by 0.6 per cent year-on-year in the Q2 upon comparison with the 1.2 per cent decline in the first three months of 2016. 2. Huge drops in earnings continual - The company reported a 34% drop in earnings on June 8, 2016 due to weak oil prices. The EBITDA of Rosneft decreased by one third (quarterly basis) to $ 3.2 billion, underperforming consensus by about 8%.
3. Local demands doldrums - Local demand remains in the doldrums and not helping the company meet revenue targets. Also, there is a lack luster demand in Russia for oil and trend seems to continue for upcoming years making the situation tougher for Rosneft.
