Reporting standards and assurance

In preparing the report, the company relied on the GRI Standards (Core option) and ISO 26000:2010 (Guidance on social responsibility), as well as the Reference Performance Indicators of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP).

Appropriate disclosure of qualitative and quantitative information prepared in accordance with GRI Standards was assured in accordance with International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000 (Revised) “Assurance Engagements other than Audits and Reviews of Historical Financial Information”. Independent Limited Assurance Report is presented in Appendix. PricewaterhouseCoopers Audit acted as an independent auditor.

The Report contains forward-looking statements on the company’s mid and long-term plans, and their feasibility depends, among other things, on a number of economic, social and legal factors beyond the company’s control. Consequently, actual results may differ from those plans.

The Report has been approved by Gazprom Neft’s Management Board.
