2020年上半年俄气利润下滑

原标题:2020年上半年俄气利润下滑

    中国石化新闻网讯 据今日油价网站8月31日消息 俄罗斯天然气工业股份公司(Gazprom)公布称,今年上半年的营业利润为25.7亿美元(1899.9亿卢布),低于一年前的105.7亿美元(7808.8亿卢布),原因是疫情导致天然气需求枯竭。

    这家天然气巨头表示,在报告期内销售额同比下降了29%。

    本月早些时候,俄气的一份监管文件称,该公司在欧洲天然气市场(俄气的一个关键市场)的份额从去年第二季度的43.2%下降到39.2%。此外,第二季度,通过管道输送到欧洲的天然气份额同比下降了6.7%。

    报告指出,这可能意味着液化天然气销售或储存天然气供应增加,美国和卡塔尔液化天然气在欧洲天然气供应组合中的份额在本季度分别上升了6.4%和2.3%。

    第二季度对全球石油和天然气公司来说是最具破坏性的一个季度,因为全球各地的能源需求被封锁。路透社在一份报告中指出,俄罗斯能源企业也因卢布贬值而遭受额外的痛苦,卢布贬值使外国计价债务的偿还成本更高。

    尽管如此,俄罗斯天然气工业股份公司仍然处于亏损状态,但据该公司管理委员会副主席Famil Sadygov称,这部分归因于于其运营和资本支出的优化。

    Famil Sadygov表示:“尽管债务负担有所增加,但仍在可控范围内,在俄气的整体债务结构中,期限超过5年的长期借款占主导地位。除第二季度末,俄气的全部现金余额超过了1万亿卢布。”

    Gazprom Sees Profits Slump In H1 2020

    Russia’s Gazprom reported an operating profit of $2.57 billion (189.99 billion rubles) for the first half of the year, down from $10.57 billion (780.88 billion rubles) a year earlier as the pandemic wiped out demand for gas.

    Sales fell by 29 percent on the year in the reporting period, the gas major said.

    Earlier this month, one report, citing a regulatory filing by Gazprom, that the company’s share in the European gas market—a key market for Gazprom—fell during the second quarter of the year to 39.2 percent from 43.2 percent a year earlier. What’s more, the share of gas pumped into Europe via pipelines fell by 6.7 percent on the year during the second quarter.

    The report suggested this might have meant higher LNG sales or gas supplies from storage, with the share of U.S. and Qatari LNG in Europe’s gas supply mix rising during the quarter, Argus Media noted, by 6.4 percent and 2.3 percent, respectively.

    The second quarter has been the most devastating to oil and gas companies globally as lockdowns took a solid bite out of energy demand across the world. Russian energy companies, Reuters noted in a report, also suffered additional pain from a weaker ruble that made foreign-denominated debt more expensive to service.

    Despite this pain Gazprom remained in the black, “thanks in part to the optimization of its operating and capital expenditures,” according to the deputy chairman of the company’s management committee, Famil Sadygov.

    “Although the debt burden has increased, it remains manageable, and longterm borrowings with a maturity period of more than five years prevail in the Gazprom Group’s overall debt structure,” Sadygov also said. “Apart from that, the Company’s liquidity position allows it to confidently fulfill all of its obligations: at the end of the second quarter, the total amount of cash and deposits of the Gazprom Group exceeded RUB 1.1 trillion.”
