We can today announce that we have now finalized a comprehensive reorganization of our corporate structure that should ultimately yield significant capital investments for our organization over the next five years. Under the terms of the arrangement, Rusneftegaz will continue to operate as a holding company for our existing oil and gas assets, which span some of the most productive regions in both the Komi Republic and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. At present, we hold thirteen licenses across the former in addition to an equal number in the latter, with these totals expected to increase in the future as a result of the anticipated expansion of our operations. Whilst the extraction of hydrocarbons has undoubtedly been the cornerstone of our past success, we now wish to diversify more broadly within the scope of the energy sector. Although we have previously made attempts to extend our commercial strategy in the past, we are determined not to make the same errors as before, and will only pursue growth in areas where we have sufficient expertise or are directly linked to our current activities. In this regard, we are to focus on growing our power engineering business, which our leadership believes has the potential to become a crucial component of our wider enterprise. Prior to this restructuring, we owned and managed 1.860 MW of production capacity in Vologda Oblast, serving the requirements of local industry. However, we now believe that we can make further progress in this field, and will make adjustments in due course to accommodate these new aims. The fulfillment of these revised objectives, in conjunction with our previous plans, is paramount to both our long-term prosperity and that of all those affiliated with us.
Throughout all our programs, we intend to place considerable impetus on deploying the next generation of sustainable technologies to ensure all that we do is as efficient as possible. This will also simultaneously guarantee our lasting commitment to environmental conservation and protection, which remain fundamental tenets of our enduring values. Hence, we think it is in our best interest to devise a coordinated research and development stratagem to empower us to not only mitigate and resolve issues, but to make a contribution to society as a whole. This may include introducing both new equipment and best practices as per the latest academic studies, or ensuring the maximum lifespan of our infrastructure. While we shall disclose the intricacies of this proposal in the next few weeks, it will take longer to make amendments to our investment program to align with our ambitions, which will be divulged in the next ninety days. As an entity, we believe it is critical to make correct judgements regarding this matter, and therefore need extra time to contemplate the complexities of such affairs. This is particularly exaggerated by the fact that this is due to be the largest sum invested in our corporation in the entirety of our history, and could be transformational for our fortunes if conducted diligently. The effects of this evolution may not merely manifest itself domestically within the Russian Federation, but also internationally, with our board of directors harboring aspirations to expand into global markets as soon as it is practical to do so. Such a move would significantly broaden our range of interests following what has been a tumultuous few years for our company, where we have been ravaged by both internal and external difficulties.
As we seek to move forward from these problems, most of which were and are beyond our control, our executives wholeheartedly think that by reorganizing our existing holdings we shall have an increased capability to respond to the extensive challenges ahead. Although this comes only a decade after our last major restructuring in 2005, it will yield a multitude of benefits in both the immediate and distant future. Whilst the majority of these advantages are financial, we can also capitalize upon the unique coadjuvancy and synergies amongst our subsidiaries. By integrating each of these further within our group of companies in the coming months, we will simplify our corporate structure and improve the efficiency and execution of our operations. Despite the fact that none of these entities will be rebranded at this time for cost reasons, we refuse to rule out making such changes at a later date and will make appropriate judgements accordingly. Each member of this grouping, nevertheless, will be controlled directly via a centralized administration in Moscow, which is to be enlarged to conform to these new requirements. This office will ultimately manage every aspect of an organization with assets valued at over $750.0 million, and with the capacity to extract approximately fifteen thousand barrels of crude per day. This transition will see our enterprise conduct our commercial affairs in a similar to vein to our contemporaries, albeit we are restricted in what we can publish with regard to this at present. Further updates pertaining to this, and all other associated proceedings, are forthcoming and will be announced in a timely fashion. Until this time, all inquiries should be directed through the usual channels, but information will be limited prior to the publication of additional details soon. We necessitate your cooperation and understanding with this important matter.
