The Gazprom Board of Directors took note of the information about the Company's financial strategy for major projects on transboundary gas pipelines construction.
At present, the Company is engaged in a number of strategically important gas transmission projects – TurkStream, Nord Stream II, Power of Siberia and Power of Siberia-2. They will help increasing the reliability of Russian gas supplies to international consumers and setting up new export routes.
The Meeting pointed out that the financial strategy secured a high level of Gazprom's financial stability necessary for executing such major projects.
Gazprom adheres to a conservative approach to financing capital costs – thus, for nine years already they have been fully secured with operating cash flow. Following the 2014 results, Gazprom Group generated a record-breaking cash flow – USD 17.2 billion – and came out on top among global major public oil and gas companies by this indicator. Due to the pursued strategy, Gazprom shows impressive liquidity ratios and a rather low debt load level.
In addition, the Company is in a good position for attracting borrowings from international capital markets on favorable terms and it also has a successful experience of project financing.
Thereby, Gazprom has every opportunity for financing the scheduled transboundary gas transmission projects.

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.
