Following 2015 Rosneft's hydrocarbon reserve life under the SEC classification totaled 19 years.

Reserves growth by 3P category amounted to +2%.
Outstanding results and reserves growth were achieved due to the implementation of optimal new zones' development plans at operated fields, efficient efforts aimed at the enhanced recovery and significant achievements in the area of hard-to-recover reserves development in the Company's operating regions.
Operational excellence, coordinated teamwork, efficient reserves management in 2015 allowed the Company to successfully develop in concordance with its strategic goals and to confirm its leading positions among world publicly traded companies in terms of proven hydrocarbon reserves and hydrocarbon resources.
