Information regarding the misrepresentation of NOVATEK`s name and logo
Moscow, 29 April 2009. OAO NOVATEK (the “Company”) would like to call your attention to the fraudulent and unfair business practices of a group of individuals claiming to be representatives of the business units “NOVATEK-Export” and/or “NOVATEK Petroleum”, which are not affiliated in any manner with the Company and/or its subsidiaries. The Company has no relations with these entities and/or their representatives.
Under the auspices of “NOVATEK-Export” and/or “NOVATEK Petroleum” these individuals offer potential customers an opportunity to enter into contracts for the delivery of oil products and other goods in return for money transferred to their accounts.
The group uses elements of OAO NOVATEK’s corporate design in business correspondence and contracts as well as referencing an English language web-site http://novatek-export.ru which uses information copied from the official website of OAO NOVATEK. The Domain name novatek-export.ru does not belong to OAO NOVATEK or any of our affiliated companies nor does the address listed on the fraudulent site, Krzhizhanovskogo Street 20/2, Moscow.
