NOVATEK PROFIT 60.6 BLN RUR
OAO NOVATEK ("NOVATEK" or the "Company") today released its consolidated interim condensed financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended 30 September 2015 prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").
In the third quarter and first nine months 2015, our total revenues increased by 38.5% and 31.2%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods of 2014, which was mainly due to an increase in liquids sales volumes and prices for natural gas sales.
The Company's Normalized EBITDA, inclusive of share in EBITDA of joint ventures, amounted to RR 52.6 billion in the third quarter 2015 and RR 157.9 billion in the first nine months 2015, representing an increase of 35.7% and 29.4%, respectively, as compared to the corresponding periods of 2014. Our Normalized EBITDA was positively impacted by the higher share of liquid product sold in our overall sales volumes mix.
In the first nine months 2015, Normalized Profit attributable to NOVATEK shareholders, totaled RR 60.6 billion (including a loss of RR 13.4 billion in the third quarter 2015).
Our profit dynamics were negatively impacted by the devaluation of the Russian rouble against the US dollar and Euro, which resulted in non-cash foreign exchange losses due to revaluation of the foreign currency debt of NOVATEK and our joint ventures, mainly Yamal LNG. The revaluation does not negatively impact the profitability and financial performance of our business given the currency structure of NOVATEK and our joint ventures cash flows. Net of the foreign exchange effects, our Normalized Profit attributable to NOVATEK shareholders in the third quarter and first nine months 2015 increased by 31.5% and 20.6% respectively compared to the corresponding periods of 2014.

BLOOMBERG - While Europe as a whole gets more than a third of its gas from Russia, that share is lower in the U.K., which receives the bulk of its fuel from North Sea fields and Norway. Still, Moscow-based Gazprom PJSC was the second-biggest supplier to major industrial consumers in the U.K. last year, according to Britain’s energy regulator Ofgem.
FT - of the six LNG tankers that have made deliveries into the UK so far in 2018 three have carried cargoes originally from Russia, leading to questions about whether Moscow was gaining a foothold in the UK gas market after starting up the Yamal LNG facility in Siberia late last year.
REUTERS - So far this year, two Yamal cargoes unloaded at British terminals for domestic consumption, accounting for about a third of Britain’s 2018 LNG imports after typical supplier Qatar pre-sold the bulk of its winter output to Asia last year.
REUTERS - U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures CLc1 were at $60.77 a barrel at 0753 GMT, up 6 cents, or 0.1 percent, from their previous settlement. Brent crude futures LCOc1 were at $64.62 per barrel, down just 2 cents from their last close.
