Rapid adaptation to external challenges

Given the financial instability and economic slowdown, the Company’s efficiency has become the key to its sustainability and business longevity. Over the past two years, the Company has made significant progress in matters concerning production safety, has also become the leader in operating efficiency in Russia and is now committed to becoming one of the global leaders in terms of efficiency.

Efficiency and a broad range of oil prices

Price pressure on oil and the tax burden

Gazprom Neft’s vertically integrated business model comprised of two enlarged segments — Upstream and Downstream — is well-balanced: any change in oil prices increases profitability in one of the segments.

By consistently developing advantages in each segment, Gazprom Neft achieves the best operating efficiency among Russian VIOCs.
