Gazprom Neft PJSC has published its consolidated financial results in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for 9M 2016.

Increased production at major upstream projects and effective management drove a 4.1% Y-o-Y increase in adjusted EBITDA* (earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortization) for 9M 2016, to RUB 325 bln. Net profit attributable to shareholders in Gazprom Neft PJSC for 9M 2016 reached RUB 147 bln, a 12.7% increase Y-o-Y.

Adjusted EBITDA for 3Q 2016 rose by 13.2% Q-o-Q to RUB 121 bln, driven by a significant increase in upstream production at key projects. Net profit attributable to shareholders in Gazprom Neft PJSC reached RUB 57 bln in 3Q 2016, rising by 16.8% Q-o-Q.

Gazprom Neft’s performance for 9M 2016 was supported by an 8.1% Y-o-Y increase in production, which reached 63.52 million tonnes of oil equivalent (mmtoe). This increase reflected a continued rise in production at Novy Port, Prirazlomnoye, SeverEnergia (Arcticgas), production growth in Iraq, as well as the consolidation of 50% of production volumes at Northgas and increasing gas utilization at fields in Khanty Mansiysk and Orenburg regions.

Refining volumes at Gazprom Neft refineries and refining joint ventures reached 31.21 million tonnes for the first nine months of the year. Refining volumes were optimized in the context of a challenging demand and pricing environment for both crude and oil production. At the same time, output of light products in 9M 2016 rose by 2.3 percentage points Y-o-Y, rising from 62.43% to 64.7%. Despite the negative demand dynamics of the oil product market, Gazprom Neft increased sale volumes via its retail network by 3.4%. The Company sold 7.66 million tonnes of oil products via its retail network in 9M 2016.
