Congratulations with the Oil and Gas Industry Workers Day from the Chairman of Rosneft Management Board Igor Sechin

04 September 2015

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am pleased to congratulate you with our professional holiday, Oil and Gas Industry Workers Day. It has been for 50 years, that on this day we honor geologists and drillers, builders and process engineers – all of those who chose to work in the petroleum industry. One can only admire the courage and bravery of these outstanding people who are genuine experts and masters of their craft. Oil and gas sector is truly called the foundation for our country's development.

Rosneft is a leader among global public oil companies. And our strategic goals remain unchanged. The goals are to ensure dynamic development of the Company, to enhance its investment attractiveness and to increase shareholder value. Our Company has approached its professional holiday with significant achievements, resulting from our joint work. And, the most significant, and, one can say, a historical event was a discovery of a petroleum province in the Kara Sea. This discovery will increase Russia's mineral resource potential many-fold, and enable our country to remain one of the leading oil and gas producers for many years.

We are thinking about the future of the Company, its development prospects, and are working to expand its resource base. The Company's proven hydrocarbon reserves today are sufficient for more than two decades. Rosneft keeps successfully developing the offshore projects. Our gas business reached the new level. We became the third largest gas producer in Russia. It is a good result, but we are striving to do better. While retaining its position in the old markets, our Company is accessing new "export routes", continuing to increase its presence in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Dear Colleagues, all these results were achieved thanks to great work of the entire Company. You are the main resource of the Company and the basis of its future prosperity. We all have a common goal - to make Rosneft even more dynamic, modern and efficient.

I wish you good health, happiness and success!

Happy Oilman's Day!

Chairman of Rosneft Management Board  I. Sechin
