Exports of Oil and Petroleum Products
In 2013, Gazprom Neft Group exported 16.82 million tonnes of petroleum products, including 14.61 million tonnes to non-CIS countries and 2.21 million tonnes to CIS countries. Exports to non-CIS countries grew by 3.4% compared with 2012. The increase in export sales of petroleum product was due to expansion into new markets and an increased volume of trade.
Oil and petroleum products are exported to non-CIS countries through Gazprom Neft Trading GmbH, Austria, a trading subsidiary of the Group that supplies oil and petroleum products manufactured by the Company to end consumers outside Russia. The establishment of a trading subdivision for the centralised export of products is in line with common practice used by the majority of the largest international VIOCs and national oil companies.
