Total capital investments grew by 30.1% in the reporting year from 208.6 bn to 271.3 bn RUB.
A 33.8% year-on-year increase in capital investments in the exploration and production segment was primarily due to:
- the development of fields in the Noyabrsk and Orenburg Region;
- drilling at the Priobskoye field;
- the active construction of major infrastructure facilities at the Novoportovskoye field (Arctic terminal, oil gathering system and pressure-based oil pipeline);
- capital expenditures on the recently acquired fields: Dolginskoye (Q3 2013) and Prirazlomnoye (Q2 2014).
