PAO NOVATEK is the largest independent natural gas producers in Russia. The Company is principally engaged in the exploration, production, processing and marketing of natural gas and liquid hydrocarbons and have more than 20 years of operational experience in the Russian oil and natural gas sector.


Our principal operating areas are concentrated in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region (YNAO) in Western Siberia. The YNAO is the most significant gas producing region in Russia, accounting for approximately 80% of Russia’s natural gas production and approximately 15% of global gas production.


Hydrocarbons Reserves 

As of 31 December 2020, we had 16.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe) of SEC proved reserves. Most of our reserves are located onshore or can be developed from onshore locations and are attributed to the conventional categories.


Geological Exploration 

We aim to expand our resource base through geological exploration at fields and license areas not only in close proximity to existing transportation and production infrastructure, but also in new potentially prospective hydrocarbon areas. In 2020 the replacement rate of our proved reserves amounted to 117%.


Hydrocarbon Production 

We carry commercial production of hydrocarbons at 23 fields. Marketable production of natural gas increased by 3.6% and production of liquids decreased by 0.7% in 2020.


Gas Condensate Processing 

We process our unstable gas condensate at our Purovsky Plant, which produces stable gas condensate and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). In June 2013 we launched processing of stable gas condensate at the newly built Ust-Luga Complex on the Baltic Sea. The Complex produces light and heavy naphtha, jet fuel, heating oil and gasoil. 


Financial Results 

We generate revenues primarily from natural gas and stable gas condensate product sales and, to a lesser extent, sales of other liquid hydrocarbons. Our total revenues and EBITDA in 2020 amounted 712 bln RUB and 392 bln RUB respectively.


Shares and Credit Ratings 

Shares of NOVATEK are listed on the Moscow Exchange and the London Stock Exchange (in form of GDR). NOVATEK has credit ratings from the three leading credit rating agencies - Moody’s Investor Services, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch Ratings.
