Gazprom Neft reports 23% year-on-year increase in net income for H1 2017

In H1 2017, hydrocarbon production, inclusive of joint venture operations, reached 44.02 m tonnes of oil equivalent, an increase of 5.3% year-on-year. This was driven by production ramp-up at the new Novoportovskoye, Prirazlomnoye and Messoyakha fields, as well as in Iraq.
The reduced volume of oil refining in H1 2017 was in-line with the Company’s annual production plan, which factors in scheduled overhaul of large-process ring units at the Moscow Refinery as well as crude oil distillation units (CDU-4) at the YaNOS Refinery. At the same time, in H1 2017 Gazprom Neft increased its retail sales in the fuel market by 6.1% and sold more than 5.2 m tonnes of petroleum products through its own filling station network.
