Net sales of gas to Europe and other countries increased by RUB 729,998 million, or 33%, to RUB 2,951,215 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017. The change was mainly due to the increase in average prices (including excise tax and customs duties) denominated in the Russian Ruble by 33%. At the same time average prices denominated in US Dollar increased by 23%.
Net sales of gas to Former Soviet Union countries increased by RUB 55,848 million, or 19%, to RUB 348,625 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017. The change was due to the increase in average prices (including customs duties) denominated in the Russian Ruble by 11% and the increase in volumes of gas sold by 9%, or 3.1 bcm. At the same time average prices denominated in US Dollar increased by 3%.
Net sales of gas in the Russian Federation increased by RUB 78,808 million, or 9%, to RUB 954,493 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017. This change was mainly explained by the increase in average prices by 5% and the increase in volumes of gas sold by 4%, or 9.8 bcm.
Net sales of refined products increased by RUB 492,682 million, or 29%, to RUB 2,179,772 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017. The increase in net sales of refined products was due to an increase in average prices in all geographic segments and an increase in Gazprom neft Group sales volumes to customers in the Russian Federation, Europe and other countries.
Net sales of crude oil and gas condensate increased by RUB 194,995 million, or 36%, to RUB 734,953 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017. The increase in net sales of crude oil and gas condensate was mainly due to an increase in average prices.

The change in operating expenses is primarily caused by an increase in the item “Taxes other than on profit” by RUB 252,219 million, or 20%, for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017. The increase is due to an increase in mineral extraction tax (MET) by RUB 248,654 million, or 27%, mainly as a result of a rise in crude oil prices, an increase in the adjusting coefficient in the MET formula for crude oil and an increase in coefficient values in the MET formula for gas.
The item “Purchased gas and oil” increased by RUB 232,684 million, or 19%, for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017, that was mainly due to an increase in average gas and oil prices.
The balance of foreign exchange rate differences reflected within the item “Net finance income (expense)” produced the loss in the amount of RUB 332,225 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the loss of RUB 10,728 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. There were the appreciation of US Dollar and Euro against the Russian Ruble by 21 % and 15 %, respectively, for the reporting year compared to the depreciation of US Dollar against the Russian Ruble by 5% and the appreciation of Euro against the Russian Ruble by 8% for the prior year.
Profit attributable to the owners of PJSC Gazprom for the year ended December 31, 2018 amounted to RUB 1,456,270 million which is by RUB 741,968 million, or 104 %, more than for the year ended December 31, 2017.
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 616,892 million, or 26%, from RUB 2,397,511 million as of December 31, 2017 to RUB 3,014,403 million as of December 31, 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.
