Net sales of gas decreased by RUB 64,834 million, or 6 %, to RUB 1,008,020 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year.

Net sales of gas to Europe and Other countries decreased by RUB 69,297 million, or 10 %, to RUB 593,879 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year. This was mainly driven by the decrease in average Russian Ruble prices (including excise tax and customs duties) by 20 %, that was partially compensated by the increase in volumes of gas sold by 13 %, or 7.5 bcm.

Net sales of gas to Former Soviet Union countries decreased by RUB 14,800 million, or 13 %, to RUB 102,135 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year. The change was due to the decrease in average Russian Ruble prices (including customs duties) by 23 % that was partially compensated by the increase in volumes of gas sold by 15 %, or 1.6 bcm.

Net sales of gas in the Russian Federation increased by RUB 20,405 million, or 7 %, to RUB 312,255 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year. This is mainly explained by the increase in volumes of gas sold by 8 %, or 6.3 bcm, that was partially compensated by the decrease in average Russian Ruble prices (net of VAT) by 1 %.

Net sales of refined products increased by RUB 55,723 million, or 16 %, to RUB 393,663 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year. The increase in sales of refined products was due to an increase in average prices.

Net sales of crude oil and gas condensate increased by RUB 63,308 million, or 84 %, to RUB 138,837 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year. The increase in sales of crude oil was due to an increase in average prices in all geographic segments and also due to an increase in volumes of crude oil sold by Gazprom Neft Group to customers in Europe and Other countries.

Operating expenses increased by RUB 53,196 million, or 4 %, to RUB 1,507,095 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year.

The increase in operating expenses is explained by an increase in a number of items such as: “Taxes other than on income” – the increase by RUB 77,367 million, or 36 %; “Cost of goods for resale, including refined products” – the increase by RUB 25,589 million, or 81 %, that was partially compensated by the decrease in a number of items such as: “Purchased gas and oil” – the decrease by RUB 29,035 million, or 8 %; “Transit of gas, oil and refined products” – the decrease by RUB 18,897 million, or 11 %.

Profit attributable to the owners of PJSC Gazprom for the three months ended March 31, 2017 totaled RUB 333,453 million which is RUB 28,856 million, or 8 % less than for the same period of the prior year.

Net debt balance (defined as the sum of short-term borrowings, current portion of long-term borrowings, short-term promissory notes payable, long-term borrowings, long-term promissory notes payable, net of cash and cash equivalents and balances of cash and cash equivalents restricted as to withdrawal under the terms of certain borrowings and other contractual obligations) increased by RUB 110,418 million, or 6 %, from RUB 1,932,895 million as of December 31, 2016 to RUB 2,043,313 million as of March 31, 2017. This increase was due to a decrease in cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2017.
