The locations of SR-DRAGa and regional depositories were published by the Rossiyskaya Gazeta in the Meeting notice on April 20, 2011.

Pursuant to the resolution by the Gazprom Board of Directors dated April 19, 2011 the extraordinary General Shareholders Meeting will be convened on June 30, 2011 at the Company's headquarters in Moscow.
