Gazprom Neft Press Office:
In the last few days certain mass media in Russia and abroad carried articles where shareholders and top-managers of Sibir Energy allegedly stated that Sibir Energy had forwarded a proposal to Gazprom Neft for a buy-out of controlling stake in Sibir Energy.
The above information is in correct. Gazprom Neft has not received any proposals for acquisition of the controlling stake in Sibir Energy. Gazprom Neft believes that it might reflect the British company managers’ wishful thinking.
