The development of energy markets encourages energy companies to optimise their productive asset management process. In times of crisis, effective asset management becomes a top-priority issue for energy companies due to limited investment resources for renewal and modernisation. This study reveals the principles of productive asset management systems in energy companies. The formation of asset management systems in international energy companies is analysed. It is illustrated that the asset management process must be integrated into the energy company’s overall strategy. A schematic diagram of productive asset management in energy companies in times of crisis is suggested.
