Shareholders of Gazprom Neft (the ‘Company’) have approved the Company’s 2017 Annual Report and Accounts at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (“AGM”), that took place in St Petersburg on 9 June 2018.

The shareholders have also endorsed the recommendation made by the Board of Directors to pay dividends in the amount of RUB72.12 billion, which represents 28.1 percent of the Company’s 2017 consolidated net profit under IFRS. In 2017, net profit grew 26.5 percent year-on-year to RUB253.3 billion.
