Abstract: The issues of land management during design, construction, renovation and operation of oil and gas facilities are discussed. The complexity of applying the existing legislation for land reservation and acquisition for the construction of oil and gas facilities, both in private and public investment into construction is stressed. The problems of registration of the initial permits for facilities construction are illustrated by practical experience. The questions of territorial planning of pipeline transportation facilities at the federal, regional and local levels as the basis of land reservation for public needs are considered. The technique of land management operations is proposed which allows to sig- nificantly reduce the complexity, time expenditure and the estimated cost as well as to comply with the legitimate interests of all stakeholders, and therefore potentially prevent possible disputes with land owners and, in the subsequent litigation.

Abstract: The problem of ownership of natural resources in a federal state is very complex and has no unique solution. Building a competent system of separation of powers of the Russian Federation and subjects of the Russian Federation on issues of ownership, use and disposal of mineral resources is a priority for improving the modern law on subsoil use. In developing approaches to the division of powers in the sphere of subsoil use it is necessary to consider the interests of the Russian Federation as a whole and the individual subjects of the Federation, as well as the established practice of government regulation of subsoil minerals disposal relations.
