Net sales of gas increased by RUB 718,461 million, or 31%, to RUB 3,050,692 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year that was mainly due to an increase in average prices (including excise tax and customs duties) in the Europe and other countries and an increase in volumes of gas sold in all geographic segments for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year.
Net sales of gas to Europe and other countries increased by RUB 593,210 million, or 38%, to RUB 2,140,525 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year. The change was due to the increase in average Russian Ruble prices (including excise tax and customs duties) by 30% and the increase in volumes of the gas sold by 7% or 11.6 bcm.
Net sales of gas to Former Soviet Union countries increased by RUB 33,442 million, or 17%, to RUB 235,608 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year. The change was mainly due to the increase in volumes of gas sold by 12%, or 3.0 bcm, and the increase in average Russian Ruble prices (including customs duties) by 4%.
Net sales of gas in the Russian Federation increased by RUB 48,895 million, or 8%, to RUB 636,873 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year. This change is explained by the increase in volumes of gas sold by 4%, or 6.0 bcm, and the increase in average Russian Ruble prices (net of VAT) by 4%.
Net sales of refined products (net of excise tax, VAT and customs duties) increased by RUB 359,415 million, or 29%, to RUB 1,586,225 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year. The increase in sales of refined products was mainly due to an increase in average prices in all geographic segments and an increase in the Gazprom neft Group’s sales volumes.
Net sales of crude oil and gas condensate (net of VAT and customs duties) increased by RUB 162,758 million, or 42%, to RUB 550,711 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year. The increase in sales of crude oil was mainly due to an increase in average prices.
Operating expenses increased by RUB 573,901 million, or 15%, to RUB 4,450,034 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year.
The change in operating expenses is primarily explained by an increase in the item “Purchased gas and oil” by RUB 274,954 million, or 33% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year. The change was due to an increase in average gas and oil prices and an increase in volumes of gas purchased from external suppliers.
The item “Taxes other than on profit” increased by RUB 185,223 million, or 21%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year that was mainly due to the increase in mineral extraction tax by RUB 176,003 million, or 28%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period of the prior year.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 the balance of foreign exchange rate differences reflected within “Net finance income (expense)” produced the loss in the amount of RUB 234,374 million compared to the loss of RUB 6,670 million for the same period of the prior year.
Profit attributable to the owners of PJSC Gazprom for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 totalled RUB 1,017,250 million which is by RUB 435,416 million, or 75%, more 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) increased by RUB 229,095 million, or 10%, from RUB 2,397,511 million as of December 31, 2017 to RUB 2,626,606 million as of September 30, 2018. This change was mainly due to an increase in the amount of long-term borrowings denominated in the Russian Ruble caused by the appreciation of US Dollar and Euro against the Russian Ruble.
