    Gazprom to increase profit by nearly $1bn

    Gazprom, Russia’s largest gas company, expects its profit in 2003 to reach RUR 145.7bn (about $4.64bn), RUR 30bn (about $956m) more than last year. Hydrocarbon reserves are expected to rise by 348.5 tons of oil equivalent. The company plans to build 1,588 kilometers of piping and five compressor stations this year. The stabilization of gas production and the strengthening of the resource base were defined as priorities for Gazprom’s subsidiaries in 2003, according to the company’s press service. Gazprom also summed up some results of the year 2002. Gas supplies to the Russian consumer market reached almost 320bn cubic meters (independent producers taken into account) last year. This is 1.5bn cubic meters more than in 2001. Debts of Russian consumers for gas supplies reduced by almost RUR 5bn to RUR 38.6bn (about $1.23bn) in 2002. Consumers paid for 97.3 percent of supplies delivered last year. According to preliminary estimates, gas production by Gazprom’s subsidiaries reached 521.9bn cubic meters in 2002, 1.7bn cubic meters above target and 10bn cubic meters up from 2001.

    Presidential envoy approves Gazprom's plans in Siberia

    RBC, 28.03.2003
    Proposals for the development of fields in Eastern Siberia presented by Gazprom "deserve close attention," Russian presidential envoy in the Siberian Federal District Leonid Drachevsky announced at an RBC-organized press conference today. He noted that Gazprom was a "powerful and authoritative organization" and there were hardly any other companies that could develop gas resources in Eastern Siberia with the same skills and qualification as Gazprom.
    In its proposals, Gazprom reported plans to become the only operator of the natural gas project in Eastern Siberia. Gazprom experts estimated total investments in the development of the Kovykta gas condensate fields in the region at $3.98bn. The construction of a backbone pipeline Kovykta-Balagansk-Proskokovo with an outlet to Irkutsk will cost $4.22bn.

    Rumänien schaut nach Osten

    Neue Kontakte zu Rußland. Grundlagenvertrag im Gespräch. Energiesektor und Privatisierungen im Blick

    Mehr als ein Jahrzehnt standen die Beziehungen zwischen Rumänien und Rußland still, eine Annäherung wurde durch mißverständliche Signalen von beiden Seiten erschwert. Erst mit dem Besuch des russischen Premierministers Michail Kasjanow in Rumänien ist Ende März ein Signal für den Willen beider Seiten gesetzt worden, den politischen Dialog wieder aufzunehmen. Während eines für den Sommer geplanten Besuches des rumänischen Staatspräsidenten Ion Iliescu soll ein Grundlagenvertrag zwischen Rumänien und Rußland unterzeichnet werden.

    Nach den Entscheidungen der NATO in Prag und nach den EU-Beschlüssen von Kopenhagen wird Rumänien aller Voraussicht nach die Ostgrenze der EU und der NATO markieren. Der rumänische Außenminister will daher noch in diesem Jahr in den politischen Dialog mit Rußland und der Republik Moldova eintreten und die Gespräche mit der Ukraine fortführen.

    Rußland zählt zu den fünf größten Handelspartnern Rumäniens. Die Position Rumäniens wird durch das inzwischen chronische Defizit in der Handelsbilanz mit Rußland nicht gerade gestärkt. Es beträgt zur Zeit umgerechnet rund 1,2 Milliarden US-Dollar, was einem Drittel des gesamten Handelsbilanzdefizits Rumäniens entspricht. Die Brisanz des Problems wird deutlich, wenn man berücksichtigt, daß der bilaterale Handelsaustausch zwischen beiden Staaten 2002 bei umgerechnet gut 1,3 Milliarden US-Dollar lag – 4,7 Prozent höher als 2001. Der rumänische Export betrug nur 40 Millionen US-Dollar, das niedrigste Niveau in der Geschichte der bilateralen Handelsbeziehungen.

    Einig sind sich beide Regierungen in der Privatisierungspolitik. So ist eine erklärte Absicht, Rumänien für russisches Kapital attraktiv zu machen. Zu den feilgebotenen Bereichen gehören u. a. die rumänische Leichtindustrie, der Sektor der Ernährungsgüter und die Möbelproduktion. Offensichtlich sind sich beide Staaten während des Besuchs von Kasjanow nun auch in der strategischen Zusammenarbeit näher gekommen. Dazu gehört unter anderem die Kooperation zwischen der staatlichen russischen Ölgesellschaft GAZPROM und einem noch nicht definierten rumänischen Partner. So soll der direkte Import von russischem Erdöl und Erdgas ebenso gewährleistet werden wie die Lieferung von technischem Gerät aus Rumänien an Rußland. Ein wichtiges Ziel der rumänischen Linie besteht darin, die Gas- und Erdölimporte aus Rußland langfristig zu sichern, weil sie für das Land von existentieller Bedeutung sind.

    Gazprom wildert weiter - neue Euro-Anleihe über 500 Mio. Dollar

    [26.04.2003 - 14:22]

    http://www.wwwboersenreport.de/images/gazprom1.gif

    Der weltgrößte Gasproduzent Gazprom (903276) will die Gunst der Stunde nutzen und eine weitere Euro-Anleihe über 500 Mio. Dollar auflegen. Erst vor zwei Monaten zapfte das Unternehmen den Kapitalmarkt mit einer Euro-Anleihe über 1,75 Mrd. Dollar an.

    Gazprom möchte mit der Euroanleihe die Gesamtverbindlichkeiten in Höhe von 15 Mrd. Dollar - größtenteils hochprozentige "Kurzläufer" - auf zinsgünstige "Langläufer" umschulden. Das russische Unternehmen will die verlockend niedrigen Zinsen im Augenblick für diese Aktion nutzen.

    Gazprom plant sich in diesem Jahr insgesamt vier Mrd. Dollar zu leihen. Die Chancen, dieses Geld zusammen zu bekommen, stehen gut. Die 10-jährige Euroanleihe für 1,75 Mio. Dollar war schwer nachgefragt und der osteuropäische Markt steht bei den Anlegern hoch in der Gunst.

    Gazprom wants to double pipeline capacity

    ST-PETERSBURG - Gazprom is looking at the possibility of doubling the capacity of the Northern European gas pipeline, according to Gazprom President Alexey Miller. Miller told journalists on Friday that at the present time there are no problems with financing the project. The main question is marketing the project in those countries where fuel will be delivered through the pipeline.

    In part, Miller said that marketing research is being conducted in Great Britain, where an extremely small amount of gas is delivered from Russia. Miller also said that at the current time Gazprom is conducting negotiations with Great Britain to expand delivery and, if the negotiations conclude successfully, pipeline capacity could be doubled.

    The project for building the pipeline provides for the laying of pipes at the floor of the Baltic Sea in Europe and also building sea pipeline bends for the delivery of gas to Kaliningrad Region, Finland, Sweden and Denmark. The project also provides for the delivery of gas to Great Britain. The pipeline would allow for the direct connection of Russian and European transportation systems into one gas network.

    The raw material base for the pipeline in the first stages will come from the Nadim-Pur-Tazovsky region, then Yamala, Obsko-Tazovsky inlet and Shtokmanovsky oil field. The pipeline should begin transporting natural gas in 2007, and be running at full capacity by 2009. /Rosbalt/

    Gazprom's official forecasts shortage of gas pipelines

    RBC, 28.04.2003, Moscow 15:54
    By the year 2010, the shortage of Russian gas
    transportation capacities will come to 100bn cubic meters, Gazprom Deputy CEO
    Alexander Ryazanov reported speaking at the international gas forum Gas of
    Russia 2003. According to him, the company's gas production will begin to grow
    starting in the year 2007 upon reaching the maximum outputs of the gas fields in
    the far north region. He also said that the company would need $15bn to $20bn in
    investments in order to increase gas transportation capacities.

    At present, Gazprom's investments in the Russian gas industry amount to RUR200bn
    (about $64.3bn) a year, while only RUR1bn ($32.1m) is provided by independent
    gas producers. Ryazanov argued that by the year 2010 the volume of investments
    from independent gas producers should come to some RUR7bn (about $225m) to
    maintain production outputs at a required level.

    Gazprom and the ministry see quite differently the approaches to solving
    problems. The company opposes the separation of production enterprises from the
    holding. At the same time, Ryazanov confirmed that Gazprom should be cleared of
    all expenses as a vertical company. The company itself is already spinning off
    its non-core businesses.

    Gazprom official on gas prices in Russia

    RBC, 28.04.2003, Moscow 17:06
    By 2013 practically all gas in Russia will be
    sold at free market prices, except gas supplies to the population, Gazprom
    Deputy CEO Alexander Ryazanov declared at an international gas forum held in
    Moscow today.
    According to him, by 2013 gas prices in Russia will be from $50 to
    $55 for every 1,000 cubic meters.
    He added that this would be the maximum
    possible price in Russia.

    Gazprom under Turkish press
    The Blue Stream gas pipeline, which Gazprom saw as its most promising project just half a year ago, appears not to be required by Turkey
    One of Gazprom’s most interesting and ambitious projects is under threat. The Blue Stream gas pipeline, on which Gazprom pinned great hopes regarding south-eastern European markets, suddenly became unneeded in Turkey. Gazprom had to reduce its deliveries through the pipeline. The gas giant hopes that in a few months’ time, when the Turks start working under the “take or pay” contract, there will be no attempts to abandon Russian gas supplies. However, experts say all Turkey’s claims about the “needlessness” of Russian gas are nothing else than an attempt to bring down the price of Russian gas.

    The gas pipeline under the romantic name “Blue Stream” was conceived before the 1998 crisis. There were plans to build a pipeline running underwater, at a depth of more than 2 kilometers at some points. Initially, the length of the pipeline was projected at more than 1,200 kilometers. However, financial shocks endured by both Russia and Turkey in 1998, were so strong that the implementation of the project was postponed by several years. The work was only resumed in 2001, and it was completed at the end of last year. A total of $3.2bn has been spent on the project, and part of the expenses were paid to Gazprom in the form of tax allowances. But the pipeline is still not used at its full capacity.

    Turkey has stopped taking Russian gas from the pipeline and started talks with Gazprom’s export arm, Gazexport. According to Turkish media reports, certain technical problems arose in the course of gas transportation, which have to be solved. For its part, Gazprom says the only reason behind the stoppage of deliveries is Turkey’s unstable financial situation and desire to reconsider the terms of contracts signed earlier, in particular, to bring gas prices down.

    Analysts say Turkey’s desire to reduce wholesale gas prices is quite natural, as they are now at their peak due to a half-year lag between oil and gas prices on the world market. “The decision of the Turkish side does not contradict the terms of the contract. According to it, Turkey was freed of its ‘take or pay’ obligation in the first half of 2003,” Valery Nesterov of Troika Dialog brokerage firm says. “In the second half of 2003, Turkey will have to pay to Gazprom, even if it abandons Russian gas coming through the new pipeline. But this provides a week consolation for Gazprom. Earlier, Turkey succeeded in having the initial terms of the agreement reviewed, and it will import only 2bn cubic meters of gas through the Blue Stream pipeline this year, instead of the planned 4bn,” he said.

    Indeed, the terms of the contract between Russia and Turkey do not imply an immediate switch of the Turkish economy to Russian gas, although the capacity of the pipeline would be enough for that. This year, Turkey has to buy 2bn cubic meters of gas, but gas sales are set to rise over the next 25 years until they reach a designed capacity of 16bn cubic meters of gas a year by 2028. However, some Turkish politicians are concerned that this would pose a threat to Turkey’s energy security. Indeed, if the Blue Stream pipeline works at its full capacity, Russian gas deliveries will satisfy more than a half of the Turkish demand in a few years.

    Russian energy analysts say Turkey is unlikely to divert from the terms of the agreement, because in this case, it will have to pay a significant compensation to Russia, and find an alternative supplier. According to experts, only fuel deliveries from Algeria and Iran could replace Russian gas for Turkey. But Turkey will have to build the necessary infrastructure before it starts buying gas from these countries, which will make it no cheaper than Russian gas.

    The worsening of the overall economic situation in Turkey also might prevent the Blue Stream pipeline from operating at full capacity. “The agreement might be reviewed, and prices and delivery volumes might be reduced if economic problems continue in Turkey,” Stiven Dashevsky of the Aton investment company says. Even if Turkey’s economic situation stabilizes, Ankara could be supported by other NATO countries, which will help it ensure its energy security. In this case, Gazprom will have to seek other gas buyers. “If Turkey refuses to accept the full volume of Russian gas transported through the Blue Stream pipeline, Gazprom will have to use the pipeline to increase its gas supplies to Greece and other Balkan countries. It is for this reason that the Russian gas giant is so interested in gas transportation and distribution companies in the area,” Mr. Nesterov said.

Sie hat deshalb die Lieferung über die erst Anfang des Jahres in Betrieb genommene Pipeline "Blue Stream", die Gazprom (903276) für 3,2 Mrd. US-Dollar gebaut hat, vorübergehend storniert. Schon vor dem Aufdrehen des Gashahns war klar, dass die ursprünglich vereinbarten vier Mrd. Kubikmeter pro Jahr nicht finanzierbar seien. Dem Vertrag entsprechend reduzierte die Türkei die anfängliche Menge auf zwei Mrd. Kubikmeter. Nun reicht auch dafür das Geld nicht mehr.

    Viel schlimmer für den russischen Gasproduzenten ist aber, dass die Türkei die Abhängigkeit vom russischen Gas reduzieren will. Der türkische Energieminister Hilmi Guller hat angedeutet, die russischen Gasimporte sollen bis 2008 von 70 auf 30 Prozent reduziert werden. Als Ersatzlieferanten stehen der Iran und Aserbeidschan auf der Wunschliste der Regierung.

    Gazprom (903276) wird sich nun neue Abnehmer suchen müssen, um die teure Pipeline nicht zum Milliardengrab werden zu lassen. In Frage kommen vor allem Griechenland und die Balkanländer.

    Gazprom hitting roadblocks in Lithuania

    May 9, 2003 4:25am


    The sale of a 34 percent stake in Lietuvos Dujos (Lithuanian Gas) has failed once again due to disagreements between Lithuanian and Russian officials over price and conditions of future delivery of natural gas to the Baltic country. According to a bid it made in early March, Gazprom, Russia's natural-gas monopoly and the only potential bidder for the stake, was prepared to pay 80 million litas (23.2 million euros), about 36 million litas less that the Economy Ministry was expecting to pocket from the deal. However, Deputy Economy Minster Nerijus Eidukevicius said the discrepancy in price was not the only reason the government had chosen to continue negotiations with Gazprom. The price and quantity of natural gas the Russian company will export to Lithuania have also proven to be thorny issues. "There were many aspects of the offer that were unclear. We have asked Gazprom to clarify their offer, and when we receive it we'll examine it and determine how to proceed in the best interest of both sides," said Eidukevicius. The government asked Gazprom on May 2 for unspecified adjustments in its offer and set a May 23 deadline for a response, arguing that the upcoming Russian holidays would inevitably delay the process. "A letter has been received, and Gazprom will respond to the government's requests once it has had a chance to study this letter," said Ricardas Jarmulavicius, press secretary for the gas importer Dujotekana, which represents Gazprom's interests in Lithuania. Nonetheless, the Economy Ministry was less than enthusiastic about the lack of selection it faces in its search for a strategic partner for Lithuanian Gas. "As of yet, there is no alternative to Gazprom for the public tender. The ministry most likely would have been in a better position to negotiate if there had been other bidders in the process," admitted Eidukevicius. Lithuanian Gas is currently 58.4 percent state-owned, with an additional 35.5 percent owned by a consortium led by the German gas suppliers Ruhrgas and E.ON Energie. The German group paid an initial 116 million litas in 2001 for its stake, with guarantees to invest an additional 34 million litas if the government follows through on conditions of their agreement. Gazprom's planned takeover of the central heating system in Kaunas has also run into obstacles. According to a deal struck on Oct. 31 last year between Gazprom and Kauno Energija (Kaunas Energy), the municipally-controlled utilities authority, the gas supplier was supposed to assume control of the city's main heating plant on May 1. However, even though Kaunas Energy has already received the agreed-upon 116 million litas for the Kauno Elektrine (Kaunas Electricity) plant, which provides heat for the majority of the region's buildings, Gazprom has yet to take control. "Negotiations are continuing about certain technical aspects of the plant's operation," said Ramunas Garbaravicius, chairman of Kaunas Energy's board. According to Garbaravicius, the two parties are currently discussing a permanent agreement on the specifics of the operation of the plant that either party could negate after a four-month trial period. "We are negotiating the period of time that Kaunas Electricity will retain direct control of the plant, but there is no reason to believe that an agreement won't be reached very soon," assured Jarmulavicius. The conditions of the agreement will give Gazprom a 51 percent controlling stake in Kaunas Electricity and will make it responsible for the supply of natural gas to the plant. Other consortium partners include the American firm Clement Power Venture and Dujotekana, which will hold 25 and 24 percent, respectively. Regardless of promises for a quick resolution to the outstanding disagreements, completion of the takeover has been significantly delayed due to quibbles between the two parties earlier this year, causing the entire privatization process to drag on for over a year. "Gazprom has a long-term strategy for Lithuania, which it considers a serious prospective market," said Jarmulavicius. "We don't consider our partnership with Lithuanian Gas to be the last such joint effort we'll have with a Lithuanian energy company. Our comprehensive strategy will be revealed over time," he said.

    Gazprom Woos Seoul on Supply Deal

    Itar-Tass

    Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller


    By Valeria Korchagina
    Staff Writer

    Gazprom and South Korea's state-owned gas company Kogas signed an agreement Monday that could result in direct natural gas supplies to South Korea and the joint development of a new pipeline network in eastern Siberia.

    "A new chapter in cooperation between Gazprom and Kogas has opened," Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller told reporters after the signing ceremony Monday.

    "In Korea we say: A good neighbor is like a relative," Kogas chairman Kim Myung-kyu said in praising the deal, adding that since both Gazprom and Kogas are state-owned, a profitable business relationship should be easy to forge.

    South Korea last year consumed 22 billion cubic meters of gas and the country expects demand to double by 2020, according to Gazprom.

    Under Monday's agreement, both companies are to work on feasibility studies and search for financing for future shipments of Russian gas to South Korea. Kogas is expected to finish a feasibility study for a pipeline from the giant eastern Siberian Kovykta field, which holds 1.9 billion cubic meters of gas. The license for the field is held by Rusia Petroleum, which is owned by BP, TNK, Interros and the Irkutsk regional administration.

    Miller said the shareholders of Rusia Petroleum had invited Gazprom to acquire a stake in the company. Earlier this year, Gazprom said it was considering obtaining the regional administration's 11.6 percent stake.

    Miller noted, however, that Gazprom will control all transportation of gas from Kovykta, regardless of whether Gazprom joins Rusia Petroleum or not.

    He said that a number of routes for a new pipeline are being discussed, including via North Korea. Miller also said that in the future gas could be supplied to South Korea from another large untapped field, Chayadinskoye, although a tender for the license to develop the 1.2 trillion cubic meter field has yet to be announced.

    Gazprom is also looking into an option of becoming a shareholder in Kogas itself, once the state-company is privatized, Miller said.

    Kogas's Kim also said that his company is interested in joining Sakhalin II, a Royal Dutch/Shell-led consortium that signed its first liquefied natural gas supply deal with Tokyo Gas on Monday. Previously, Kogas was tapped as a potential buyer for Sakhalin II gas, but the deal did not work out.

    Kim said Kogas wants to join the multibillion-dollar project as an operator together with Gazprom. Miller said Gazprom is considering its options. Gazprom received an offer to join Sakhalin II more than a year ago, but has yet to make a decision.

    Gazprom (903276)-CEO Alexei Miller hat gestern mit Kogas, Südkoreas größtem Erdgaslieferanten, einen Rahmenvertrag unterzeichnet. Während der Feierlichkeiten sagte Miller, Gazprom wolle Korea mit Erdgas von neuen Feldern wie Kovykta und Chayandinskoe beliefern.
    Möglich sei auch eine Beteiligung an dem koreanischen Unternehmen, das derzeit noch zu 62 Prozent in Staatsbesitz ist.

    Russische Gazprom ist am Gaskonzern VNG interessiert
    Weltmarktführer will Eon/Ruhrgas Aktien abkaufen
    Leipzig - Der größte Gasproduzent der Welt, die russische OAO Gazprom will beim zweitgrößten deutschen Importeur, der Verbundnetz Gas AG (VNG) einsteigen. Sein Unternehmen habe der Ruhrgas ein vorläufiges Angebot zur Übernahme von 26 Prozent an der ostdeutschen Ferngasgesellschaft unterbreitet, sagte Juri Komarow, stellvertretender Gazprom-Vorstandschef, in Leipzig. Man sei bereits in intensiven Gesprächen und wolle nach der Veröffentlichung aktueller VNG-Unternehmenszahlen ein verbindliches Angebot unterbreiten.


    Eon und Ruhrgas müssen nach ihrer Fusion mehrere Kartellauflagen erfüllen und dabei auch ihre VNG-Aktienpakete (5,26 und 36,84 Prozent) an einen strategischen Investor verkaufen. Zehn Prozent der Aktien sind für ostdeutsche Kommunen und Stadtwerke reserviert. Für die übrigen Anteile hat sich bereits eine Reihe von in- und ausländischen Energiekonzernen interessiert.


    Beobachter gehen davon aus, dass Gazprom gemeinsam mit der deutschen Wintershall AG für die VNG-Anteile bieten wird. Der russische Konzern und die BASF-Tochter betreiben mit der Kasseler Wingas bereits ein Joint Venture. Es wäre zweifelhaft, ob as Bundeswirtschaftsministerium einem Verkauf der VNG-Aktien allein an Gazprom zustimmen würde: Denn Eon/Ruhrgas ist größter ausländischer Aktionär der Gazprom und strebt an, die Beteiligung dort auf rund zehn Prozent aufzustocken. Eon/Ruhrgas könnten dann also eventuell auf dem Umweg über Gazprom weiterhin Einfluss auf die VNG ausüben, was kartellrechtlich nicht erwünscht wäre.


    VNG und Gazprom feierten am Mittwoch in Leipzig den Start von Erdgaslieferungen aus Sibirien nach Ostdeutschland vor 30 Jahren. VNG-Vorstandschef Klaus-Ewald Holst sprach sich dafür aus, die 2013 auslaufenden Lieferverträge möglichst bald zu verlängern. Derzeit bezieht die VNG jährlich rund sieben Mrd. Kubikmeter Erdgas von der Gazprom. Seit 1973 waren es rund 180 Milliarden. ddp/dgw
