Net sales of gas increased by RUB 37,817 million, or 1 %, to RUB 3,340,587 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016. The change was due to the growth in volumes of gas sold in all geographic segments and the growth in average US Dollar prices (including excise tax and customs duties) in the Former Soviet Union countries and Europe and Other countries, that was partially offset by the appreciation of the average exchange rate of Russian Ruble against US Dollar and Euro by 13 % and 11 %, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016.

Net sales of gas to Europe and Other countries increased by RUB 81,190 million, or 4 %, to RUB 2,221,217 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016. The change was driven by the increase in volumes of gas sold by 6 %, or 13.7 bcm, that was partially compensated by the 1 % decrease in average Russian Ruble prices (including excise tax and customs duties).

Net sales of gas to Former Soviet Union countries decreased by RUB 16,867 million, or 5 %, to RUB 292,777 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016. The change was due to the decrease in average Russian Ruble prices (including customs duties) by 10 % that was partially compensated by the increase in volumes of gas sold by 5 %, or 1.8 bcm.

Net sales of gas in the Russian Federation increased by RUB 55,761 million, or 7 %, to RUB 875,685 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016. This change is mainly explained by the increase in volumes of gas sold by 7 %, or 15.0 bcm.

Net sales of refined products increased by RUB 189,528 million, or 13 %, to RUB 1,687,090 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016. 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 128,000 million, or 31 %, to RUB 539,958 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016. The increase in sales of crude oil was mainly due to an increase in volumes of crude oil sold by Gazprom Neft Group to customers in Europe and Other countries and also due to an increase in average prices in all geographic segments.

Operating expenses increased by RUB 469,107 million, or 9 %, to RUB 5,714,090 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016.

The change in operating expenses is primarily explained by an increase in an item “Taxes other than on income” by RUB 345,662 million, or 38 % for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016. The increase is due to an increase in mineral extraction tax by by RUB 301,566 million, or 49 %, for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to the year ended December 31, 2016 mainly as a result of changes in the elements of the natural gas and crude oil MET formulas introduced with effect from January 1, 2017.

For the year ended December 31, 2017 the balance of translation differences reflected in “Net finance income (loss)” produced a loss in the amount of RUB 10,728 million compared to a gain of RUB 453,689 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. There were the depreciation of US Dollar against the Russian Ruble by 5 % and the appreciation of Euro against the Russian Ruble by 8 % for the reporting year compared to the depreciation of US Dollar and Euro against the Russian Ruble by 17 % and 20 %, respectively, for the prior year.

Profit attributable to the owners of PJSC Gazprom for the year ended December 31, 2017 amounted to RUB 714,302 million which is RUB 237,335 million, or 25 %, less than for the year ended December 31, 2016.

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 464,616 million, or 24 %, from RUB 1,932,895 million as of December 31, 2016 to RUB 2,397,511 million as of December 31, 2017. This increase was due to an increase in long-term borrowings.
