The article analyzes the features of the resource-innovative development of the oil and gas industry of the Russian Federation in a volatile global energy market.

In the message of the President of the Russian Federation to the Federal Assembly for 2017 the task is set: to implement the systematic programme for the development of the digital economy. The digitalization of the economy will be one of the main directions of economic growth and will cover all sectors of the economy, including the oil and gas complex of Russia. The article points to the need to promptly develop the legislative initiatives and a "roadmap" for the digital modernization of the Russian oil and gas complex.

The digital oil and gas sector is the cornerstone of the country's digital economy, formed on the new paradigm of the digital modernization of oil and gas production, the growth of capitalization (value of fixed assets) of companies and the industry as a whole. Digital modernization of the Russian oil and gas industry will allow ensuring the energy security of the state; satisfying the market demand for oil, gas and products of their processing; enhancing the creation of innovative technologies of oil and gas production and making a significant contribution to the development of the country's economy.

The characteristic features of the digitalization of objects and the intellectualization of processes in the oil and gas production are revealed. The intensive introduction of information and communication technologies throughout the supply chain of oil and gas production cycle has been considered. The urgency of digital modernization of the Russian oil and gas complex is justified.
