“In the reporting period, despite all the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we managed to ensure the continuity of our business and to show strong financial and operational results. We have addressed the issues of life and health protection as well as the safety of our employees. In March, the company started a vaccination program in which more than 263,000 people have participated so far. The result of the program was the formation of collective immunity. In order to prevent the spread of the disease further, we plan to continue implementing the program.

Thanks to the improvement in the macroeconomic environment in the second quarter of 2021, in particular the recovery in the prices of crude oil and petroleum products in international markets, net income was among the highest in its history, while EBITDA and free cash flow increased in the first half of 2021 doubled. The high operational and productive efficiency enabled the company to significantly improve its financial performance and to consistently further reduce its financial debt. The company’s upstream operating costs remained at a minimum of $ 2.6 / boe.

We concentrate on the implementation of large projects with high efficiency and quality reserves. In the second quarter, two production lines were put into operation at the Rospan gas project, which enabled a significant increase in production. As a result, the production unit became the company’s greatest asset in terms of gas production. As part of the implementation of the flagship project Vostok Oil in the Krasnoyarsk Oblast, Rosneft began building the most important infrastructure facilities.

In July, Rosneft prematurely completed the dividend payment of 73.5 billion rubles for 2020. The strong financial results for the first half of 2021 have laid a solid foundation for paying interim dividends and significantly increasing total payments for the full year.

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021 was RUB 571 billion (USD 7.7 billion).
