Hotnews: Gazprom: Profitul net scade cu 61%, in cifre anualizate, in primul trimestru

Profitul net al gigantului rus Gazprom a scazut in primul trimestru cu 61%, in cifre anualizate, pana la 110,2 miliarde ruble (2,4 miliarde euro), in principal din cauza cresterii cheltuielilor operationale, anunta AFP.

Cifra de afaceri a crescut cu 2,1% pana la 931,4 miliarde ruble (20,7 miliarde euro), potrivit unui comunicat al Gazprom.

Vanzarile de gaze naturale au crescut, de asemenea, cu 14%, pana la 676,5 miliarde ruble (15 mld. euro), pe fondul “preturilor ridicate la gaze in toate sectoarele geografice”, explica grupul.

Aceasta crestere a preturilor a permis Gazprom sa compenseze scaderea cererii, inregistrata in principal pe piata europeana (65% din totalul exporturilor sale), scadere determinata de criza financiara si de conflictul dintre Moscova si Kiev de la inceputul acestui an.

In schimb, cheltuielile operationale au crescut net, in principal din cauza “cresterii pretului gazului cumparat din Asia centrala”, potrivit sursei citate.

Principalul producator si exportator mondial, Gazprom, este controlat de statul rus, care si-a majorat participarea, in iunie 2005, la 50,002% din capitalul social.

Imperiul Gazprom, construit pe structurile de productie datand din epoca sovietica, controleaza un sfert din rezervele mondiale de gaze naturale si reprezinta aproximativ 8% din PIB-ul Rusiei.

Standard.ro: Transgaz va obţine 1,7 mld. de euro din Nabucco

Compania de stat Transgaz va obţine din exploatarea gazoductului Nabucco un profit de circa 1,7 miliarde de euro pentru urmatorii 25 de ani, potrivit Adelei Comăniţă, director de implementare a proiectelor strategice in cadrul Transgaz.

“Aceste estimări, făcute de firmele de consultanţă care participă la acest proiect au ca punct de reper tarifele din octombrie 2008. Ele vor fi recalculate în funcţie de noile tarife”, a declarat Comăniţă.

Veniturile obţinute de Transgaz sunt de 3 miliarde de euro pentru o perioadă de 25 de ani. Din această sumă se scade participaţia companiei de 1,3 miliarde de euro, iar 417 milioane sunt fondurile proprii Transgaz, iar restul de bani provin din credite.

Transgaz va avea nevoie de garanţii guvernametale pentru a putea participa la acest proiect, deoarece nu îndeplineşte condiţiile legate de ratingul investiţional şi de valoarea EBITD.

Compania va obţine creditele necesare atât de la statul român, cât şi de la instituţii financiare internaţionale. Transgaz are obligaţia să investească în 2009 şi 2010 circa 40 de milioane de euro ca parte de particpare la Nabucco. “Etapa de dezvoltare a proiectului şi achiziţia drepturilor de trecere vor trebui finalizate în 2010. La sfârşitul anului viitor se va lua decizia finală privind începerea construcţiei efective a gazoductului”, a explicat oficalul Transgaz.

Dacă proiectul se va amâna Transgaz va pierde cele 40 de milioane investite în 2009 şi 2010.

RIA Novosti: New gas pipeline for S.Ossetia costs $476 mln – Gazprom


TSKHINVALI, August 26 (RIA Novosti) – The newly-built gas pipeline in the former Georgian republic of South Ossetia costs 15 billion rubles ($476 million), a deputy CEO of Russia’s energy giant Gazprom said on Wednesday.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin had a meeting on Wednesday with South Ossetian President Eduard Kokoity. After the meeting, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller gave instructions to launch natural gas supplies through the newly built pipeline.

“It [the Dzuarikau-Tskhinvali pipeline] cost 15 billion rubles,” Alexander Ananenkov said.

Construction of the gas pipeline, linking North Ossetia’s Dzaurikau village to South Ossetia’s capital of Tskhinvali, started in December 2006. The pipeline stretches for 169 km.

Ananenkov added that Gazprom and the South Ossetian government had agreed to establish a joint venture to run the 70.2 km-leg of the new pipeline using the latest technology.

The distribution of stakes in the JV is currently being negotiated, but it is already known that Gazprom will hold over 50%, according to Ananenkov.

The Gazprom official said the Russian gas monopoly would build more gas pipelines for the republic, and gave assurances that natural gas would be supplied to South Ossetia through Russian pipelines for at least another hundred years.

The republic has so far been supplied by gas through the Agara-Tskhinvali leg of the Georgian Tbilisi-Kutaisi trunk system, which South Ossetia will cease to use as soon as the Dzuarikau-Tskhinvali pipeline goes to full capacity.

Georgia’s Foreign Ministry protested the pipeline’s launch later on Wednesday.

“The Georgian Foreign Ministry is voicing a resolute protest at another violation on the part of Russia of generally recognized provisions and international law principles, as well as Georgia’s territorial integrity, inviolability of state borders and national laws,” the ministry said in a statement.

Today marks a year since Russia recognized South Ossetia, and another former Georgian republic, Abkhazia, as independent after a five-day war with Georgia over Tskhinvali.

RIA Novosti: Gazprom posts 62% net profit decline to $3.3 in Q1

Gazprom posts 62% net profit decline to $3.3 in Q1

MOSCOW, August 26 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s energy giant Gazprom posted a 62% decline in net profits in the first quarter of 2009 year-on-year as calculated to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Net profit declined to 103.7 billion rubles ($3.3 billion) in January-March, the company said. Gazprom said sales rose 2% to 931.4 billion rubles ($29.7 billion).

The gas monopoly said exports to Europe and other countries dropped by 31% to 16.4 billion cubic meters to 31.7 billion in the first quarter compared to the similar period last year. But earnings grew 28% to 433.24 billion rubles ($13.8 billion) due to higher prices for European consumers.

Exports to former Soviet republics also dropped 61% in the period, but earnings increased 2% to 85.28 billion rubles ($2.7 billion) as gas prices rose.

The state-controlled company’s profits were affected by the devaluation of the ruble against the backdrop of the domestic and global economic slump. Gazprom also had a gas debt and pricing row with Ukraine in January, which led to the suspension in supplies to the EU.
