Soviet World Oil Industries, known in the west by the contraction SovOil and in the Soviet Union by the acronym SGKP, is a petrochemical corporation headquartered in the United Soviet Sovereign Republics (USSR). SovOil, being the richest company in the Soviet Union, uses its economic power to manipulate and ultimately control the Soviet government, which lead to the corporation being considered a world power in 2020.
In 1994, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was succeeded by the Union of Sovereign Soviet Republics, an entirely new entity based on economic cooperation.
In 1996, he president of the Soviet Federation Andrei Gorborev re-structured the centrally-controlled soviet oil industry. Soviet republics were arguing over how much control to hand over to the Central Committee of the Soviet Union, and no progress was being made.
In order to facilitate the restructuring, Gorborev named Anatoly Novikovo as the Director of the State Oil Industries Subcommittee. Novikovo, a Siberian delegate to the Central Committee, represented a large oil-producing region. One of the first things Novikovo did to ensure success was promoting Yarno Kurgasyn, a delegate from Kazakhstan, to be his deputy director. With two representatives of large oil-producing regions heading the subcommittee, the committee would eventually be able to successfully consolidate the Soviet oil industries into one centrally controlled corporation - Soviet State Oil Industries.
In 1997, rogue KGB elements loyal to the old Soviet Socialist Republic governments began to attack the government and state industries of the new Soviet Sovereign Republics. SovOil was granted permission by Andrei Gorborev to create their own army.In 1998 The Soviet State Oil Industries, controlled by the State Oil Subcommittee and headed by Anatoly Novikovo, successfully consolidated oil production, refinement and transportation. The company began to be called SovOil in the west.
In 2002, Sergei Kirsanov - commander of SovOil's security forces - was ordered by Novikovo to lock down SovOil company sites. Kirsanov announced that SovOil was going private and secceeding from the central committee. Though state forces attempted to retake SovOil's facilities, it was impossible without destroying them and risking the USSR's oil supply. Because of this, the Central Committee had to acknowledge SovOil's independence.
Between 2002 and 2008, SovOil rebranded itself as Soviet World Oil Industries. It also began manipulating the Soviet Central Committee, using bribes and boosting politician popularity to ensure economic stability in the USSR. During this time, SovOil began to produce CHOOH2, an alcohol-based fuel used to power vehicles.
Second Corporate War Edit
- Main article: Second Corporate War
In 2006, SovOil and Petrochem had a falling out over a business deal regarding the drilling and refinement of oil in Siberia. The fallout over this deal would eventually result in open hostilities between the two corporations, leading to the start of the Second Corporate War in 2008. In 2009, Anatoly Novikovo was killed in a surprise attack by Petrochem.
After Novikovo was killed, Yarno Kurgasyn stepped in as the head of SovOil. Yevgeny Novikovo, son of the founder, was named CEO.
In 2010, SovOil won the Second Corporate War against Petrochem.
After the War Edit
Between 2012 and 2020, Yarno Kurgasyn retired from the company. SovOil continued to cement its role as the greatest unifying force in the USSR, weilding its mighty economic influence over the soviet government. In the end, the government that created SovOil became a tool for the corporation.
In 2020, The Novikovo family were still the majority shareholders in the company. SovOil is the seventh largest corporation in the world, and it holds considerable political power in the USSR - to the point where the USSR is not considered a world power, but SovOil is.
In the year 2020, the following divisions were classified by SovOil:
- SovOil Investments - an investment firm managing portfolios and investments around the world. It is headed by Neonila Novikovo, the daughter of SovOil founder Anatoly Novikovo.
- SovOil Industrial Troubleshooting - a troubleshooting team that specializes in responding to disasters like oil-well fires. This division is lead by Peter Van Rijen. SovOil's troubleshooters are considered the best in the business; even Petrochem has hired them.
- SovOil Security Forces - SovOil's own army, commanded by General Lupold Korepino. The security force consists of an infantry branch and a Navy branch.
- SovOil Secret Police - a widely feared organization headed by Valentin Domanevka. They do not work together with the Security Forces, and often operate in a stealthy manner.
