The Third Quarter and Nine Months 2007 IFRS Financial Highlights
In the three and nine months ended 30 September 2007, profit attributable to shareholders of OAO NOVATEK increased by RR 1,033 million and RR 2,380 million, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2006 due to a combination of increased prices for natural gas and liquids and an increase in liquids sales volumes.
Selected Operating Highlights
In the third quarter of 2007, natural gas sales volumes decreased, compared to the corresponding period in 2006, primarily due to a decrease in volumes sold to wholesale traders. In the 2007 period, liquids (stable gas condensate, liquefied petroleum gas, crude oil and oil products) sales volumes increased compared to the 2006 period, primarily due to increased gas condensate and crude oil production.
In the nine month period of 2007, natural gas sales volumes increased, compared to the corresponding period in 2006, due to an increase in purchases and a decrease in natural gas inventory volumes.
