Pending endorsement by the Board, the transactions will be addressed at its nearest meeting, with appropriate documentation already forwarded to the RF Government for its decision on the voting by the state’s representatives on the Board.
“Buying into Sibneft pursues the objective of meeting a Gazprom strategic challenge to convert into a global energy company and a leading player on the global energy market. Executed on transparent market-based terms, the deal will allow Gazprom to enhance its positioning in the oil sector of the Russian economy. Reinforcing the corporate standing in the oil branch represents a step towards solidifying the Russian market of energy carriers, promoting its equilibrium and providing sustainable deliveries of refining products to consumers,” – said Dmitry Medvedev, Chairman of Gazprom’s Board of Directors.
