The Gazprom Board of Directors took notice of the information about the Company's preliminary operating results for 2014, projected Investment Program, Budget (Financial Plan) and Cost Optimization (Reduction) Program for 2016–2017.
The Board of Directors approved Gazprom's Investment Program, Budget (Financial Plan) and Cost Optimization (Reduction) Program for 2015. The key performance indicators of the Investment Program grew by RUB 1.11 billion against the version approved by the Gazprom Management Committee this November.
Pursuant to the Investment Program for 2015, the total amount of investments will make up RUB 840.35 billion. At the same time, the amount of capital investments will account for RUB 733.13 billion, of which RUB 733.09 billion and RUB 0.033 billion will be allocated for capital construction and acquisition of non-current assets accordingly. The amount of long-term financial investments will total RUB 107.22 billion.
According to the approved Budget for 2015, gains from operating and investment activities will total RUB 5.887 trillion, while the amount of payments in all activities – RUB 5.978 trillion. The external financial borrowings will stand at RUB 90 billion. The Budget surplus (taking into account intragroup borrowings and beginning balances on Gazprom's accounts as of early 2015) will account for RUB 0.5 billion.
Taking into account the Agreement with CNPC on gas supply to China via the western route, the budget covers the expenditures on pre-investment studies for the Altai project.
The Cost Optimization (Reduction) Program for 2015 envisages measures aimed at cost optimization (reduction) to result in a cumulative effect of RUB 13.1 billion.
The 2015 Investment Program was formed based on the need for implementing Gazprom's major investment projects within the preset timeline. The priority in capital construction and transmission costs allocation will be given to:
- implementing the program for the comprehensive development of the Yamal Peninsula,
- creating gas production, transmission and processing capacities using gas from the Yakutia gas production center, including the Power of Siberia project,
- constructing the Southern Corridor gas pipeline system,
- developing the underground gas storage system.

AN - China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) is willing to invest $3 billion in its existing oil and gas operation in Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said on Sunday following a meeting with the Chinese in Abuja.
REUTERS - Production at Libya’s giant Sharara oil field was expected to fall by at least 160,000 barrels per day (bpd) on Saturday after two staff were abducted in an attack by an unknown group, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said.
IMF - Output grew by 3.8 percent in 2017, underpinned by a resilient non-hydrocarbon sector, with robust implementation of GCC-funded projects as well as strong activity in the financial, hospitality, and education sectors. The banking system remains stable with large capital buffers. Growth is projected to decelerate over the medium term.
IMF - Higher oil prices and short-term portfolio inflows have provided relief from external and fiscal pressures but the recovery remains challenging. Inflation declined to its lowest level in more than two years. Real GDP expanded by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of last year. However, activity in the non-oil non-agricultural sector remains weak as lower purchasing power weighs on consumer demand and as credit risk continues to limit bank lending.
