Highlights of Interview with Gazprom CFO Kruglov   Leave a comment

Russian natural-gas giant OAO Gazprom’s net profit in 2011 will probably rise 25% to $40 billion, Chief Financial Officer Andrei Kruglov said in an interview with Gazprom’s corporate magazine.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization are expected to rise more than 30% to $60 billion, Kruglov said in the interview.

“The favorable external environment and a strict control of operations will bring the company increased profitability,” Kruglov said.

Gazprom expects higher prices for its gas sales in Europe, as well as higher export volumes, he said.

“Despite the increased tax burden on the gas industry, the company’s finances will continue to improve,” Kruglov said.
