Oil and gas sector of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District provides sustainable socio-economic situation not only in the region but in the whole country. This sector is a source of financial resources which are needed for the implementation of Russia’s transition to innovative development. The problem of accelerating the development of oil and gas sector in the region has become especially pressing because at present there are no large deposits, which could offset the decline in production of hydrocarbons in traditional commodity areas. Under these conditions, oil and gas sector continues dominance in the economy of the region in the long term. Deepening raw material export specialization of the region poses particular strain in the structure of the economy of extracting regions. In article on the basis of the analysis of the statistical information shows the role of the oil and gas sector in the socio-economic development of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District and its importance for the development of other sectors of the regional economy. Risks and prospects of the current economic model have been identified.
