Gazprom is a global energy company. Its major business lines are geological exploration, production, transportation, storage, processing and sales of gas, gas condensate and oil, as well as generation and marketing of heat and electric power. What is natural gas What is natural gas Gazprom views its mission in reliable, efficient and balanced supply of natural gas, other energy resources and their derivatives to consumers. Gazprom holds the world’s largest natural gas reserves. The Company’s share in the global and Russian gas reserves makes up 18 and 70 per cent respectively. Gazprom accounts for 15 and 78 per cent of the global and Russian gas output accordingly. At present, the Company actively implements large-scale projects aimed at exploiting gas resources of the Yamal Peninsula, Arctic Shelf, Eastern Siberia and the Far East, as well as hydrocarbons exploration and production projects abroad. Gazprom is a reliable supplier of gas to Russian and foreign consumers. The Company owns the world’s largest gas transmission network – the Unified Gas Supply System of Russia with the total length of over 161 thousand kilometers. Gazprom sells more than half of overall produced gas to Russian consumers and exports gas to more than 30 countries within and beyond the former Soviet Union. Gazprom is the only producer and exporter of liquefied natural gas in Russia. The Company’s share in the global LNG output stands at 5 per cent. The Company is among Russia’s five largest oil producers and it is the largest owner of power generating assets in the country. These assets account for 17 per cent of the total installed capacity of the national energy system. Gazprom pursues the strategic objective of establishing itself as a leader among global energy companies by entering new markets, diversifying its activities and ensuring reliable supplies

Novatek OAO We are Russia’s largest independent natural gas producer and the second-largest natural gas producer in Russia after Gazprom, in each case according to the CDU-TEK for 2012. We are principally engaged in the exploration, production, processing and marketing of natural gas and liquid hydrocarbons and have over 18 years of operational experience in the Russian oil and natural gas sector. In 2012, we accounted for approximately 9% of the natural gas produced in Russia, providing more than 16% of total natural gas deliveries through the UGSS to the domestic market, according to the CDU-TEK. Our core strategy is to maintain our position as the leading independent natural gas producer in Russia, based on reserves and production, by increasing our hydrocarbon production on a sustainable and profitable basis, while efficiently expanding our hydrocarbon resource base, optimizing our marketing channels and exploring complementary and value added projects. We supply natural gas to Russia’s domestic market and are focused on meeting the anticipated growing demand in Russia, and, as such, we expect to benefit from expected increases in regulated prices for natural gas sold and forecasted increases in power generation capacity and infrastructure investments in Russia. Our exploration, development, production and processing of natural gas and liquid hydrocarbons are primarily conducted within the Russian Federation and our principal operating areas are concentrated in the YNAO in Western Siberia. According to Government Statistics and BP’s 2011 Statistical Review, the YNAO is the most significant gas producing region in Russia, accounting for approximately 90% of Russia’s natural gas production and approximately 17% of global natural gas production. Our three core fields—Yurkharovskoye, East-Tarkosalinskoye and Khancheyskoye—accounted for approximately 38% of our total proved reserves, as appraised using the SEC’s reserve methodology, as of 31 December 2012, and 90% of our production volumes in 2012. We also hold several licenses for prospective fields and license areas located in the YNAO. We have consistently increased our natural gas production. Our marketable production in 2012 was 56.5 bcm of natural gas and 4.3 mln tons of liquid hydrocarbons. As of 31December 2012, we had 12,394 mm boe of proved reserves, of which approximately 93% were natural gas reserves, as appraised using the SEC’s reserve methodology. Over the past three years, our average reserve replacement ratio has been 623%, on a boe basis, as appraised based on proved reserves using the SEC’s reserve methodology. We generate revenues primarily from natural gas and gas condensate sales and, to a lesser extent, sales of other liquid hydrocarbons. In 2012, (i) our natural gas, (ii) stable gas condensate and (iii) LPG, crude oil and oil related products accounted for 67.6%, 22.1% and 9.9% of our total revenues, respectively and we generated total revenues and EBITDA of RR211.0 billion and RR95.2 billion, respectively, in the same period. We are currently required to sell 100% of our natural gas to customers in the Russian Federation. Our customers are primarily power generation companies, industrial users, regional gas distributors and wholesale gas traders. As an independent natural gas producer, we are not subject to the government’s regulation of natural gas prices; however, the regulated price as set by the FTS significantly influences the market conditions in our regions of delivery as well as the price in our natural gas contracts with end-customers and wholesale traders. We transport our natural gas through our pipelines into the UGSS, which we use to deliver our gas to end-customers in accordance with the relevant transportation contracts we enter into with Gazprom. The UGSS transports substantially all of the natural gas sold in Russia and is owned and operated by Gazprom. UGSS transportation tariffs are set by the FTS. Substantially all of our stable gas condensate is sold internationally, whereas our other liquid hydrocarbons, including LPG, crude oil and oil related products, are sold domestically and internationally. Gas condensate is produced in an unstable form and requires processing before it can be delivered to our customers. We currently process substantially all of our unstable gas condensate at our Purovsky Plant. Following processing, we export substantially all of our stable gas condensate to international markets, via the Port of Vitino on the White Sea in the Murmansk region. We are currently rated ‘‘Baa3’’ (stable) by Moody’s, ‘‘BBB-’’ (stable outlook) by Standard & Poor’s and ‘‘BBB-’’ (stable outlook) by Fitch. To maintain our credit rating, we have established certain financial targets and coverage ratios that we monitor on a quarterly and annual basis. A security rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities and may be subject to revision or withdrawal at any time by the assigning rating organization.
