Improved management, asset acquisition and consolidation, financial discipline and technological integration all resulted in significantly improved performance from existing assets and allowed Rosneft to embark on a program of growth and expansion.
From 2000-2004, Rosneft boosted its annual oil production, from 268 kb/d in 2000 to 433 kb/d in 2004. Gas production increased from 5.6 bcm in 2000 to 9.4 bcm in 2004. In 2001, Rosneft became the official state representative in Production Sharing Agreements (PSAs). In 2002, Rosneft expanded its international operations by entering into projects in Algeria. In 2003, the Company began producing oil at the Aday block in the Caspian Sea region of Western Kazakhstan, and in 2005, it entered a PSA at the Kurmangazy structure on the Caspian Sea shelf in Kazakhstan.
Rosneft has pursued its upstream asset acquisition strategy in Russia with a focus on geological quality and transport efficiency. Among the key assets acquired between 2000 and 2004 were Selkupneftegaz (2000), Severnaya Neft (2003), the Veninsky block at Sakhalin-3 (2003) and the Anglo-Siberian Oil Company (2003), owner of the license to the Vankor oilfield in Eastern Siberia. In December 2004, the Company purchased a controlling stake in one of Russia’s largest oil and gas companies, Yuganskneftegaz.
This acquisition, together with significant organic growth, has propelled Rosneft into its current position as Russia’s second largest oil producer, with average daily production of approximately 1.5 million barrels in 2005. In early 2005, Rosneft won the auction to the Vorgamusur field in the Timano-Pechora province, an acquisition that will ensure further growth of Severnaya Neft, whose operations are located only 80 kilometers away.
At the end of 2005, Rosneft announced the acquisition of a 25.94% stake in Verkhnechonskneftegaz, which was later complemented by the acquisition of an exploration license to the East Sugdinsky block. These acquisitions are consistent with the Company’s goal of establishing a major presence in Eastern Siberia which it believes is poised to become one of Russia’s most significant new oil and gas production bases.
In July 2006, Rosneft conducted its first ever public share offering, which raised USD 10.6 billion, making it the world’s fifth-largest IPO. Finally, in October 2006, Rosneft completed the consolidation of 12 of the Company’s upstream and downstream subsidiaries. This consolidation program will allow for further improvements in transparency and management efficiency as Rosneft grows as a public company.
