inspection of Gazpromneft-Aero refuelling facility at Sheremetyevo was held
for the first time. The commission included representatives from major
airlines such as Aeroflot and Lufthansa.

The refuelling complex at Sheremetyevo is the sixth facility operated by
Gazprom Neft to be rated as meeting IATA's highest standards.

IATA experts acknowledged the high level of both operational and environmental
safety of the refuelling complex. The facility has a unique water treatment
system. The level of water purity amounts to 6mg per litre for mechanical
impurities, and it amounts to 1mg per litre for oil, complying with the
standards applied to the water quality for aquaculture.

Gazpromneft-Aero General Director Vladimir Egorov stated: "IATA's rating
confirms the high quality of refuelling services provided by
Gazpromneft-Aero. We comply with both Russian and international standards,
actively introducing, in Russia, international best practice. The Gazpromneft
refuelling complex at Sheremetyevo cooperates with major Russian airlines and
we plan to extend our range of partners, guaranteeing high quality fuel."

"Inspection of the Gazpromneft-Aero refuelling complex shows that, starting
from the construction phase, the company implemented international standards
for jet fuel operations, which results in the highest level of safety. Also,
the Gazpromneft-Aero refuelling complex at Sheremetyevo has great potential
for developing the airport's fuel-supply infrastructure," stated the IATA Fuel
Quality Inspector Peter Westphal.

REFERENCE Gazpromneft  -  Aero is a Gazprom Neft subsidiary. Since December,
2008, Gazpromneft  -  Aero has been a strategic partner of the International
Air Transport Association (IATA) in aviation fuel supplies.

The Gazpromneft-Aero refuelling complex at the Sheremetyevo International
Airport began operations in December 2012. The refuelling complex is a part of
Sheremetyevo's refuelling system and all technological equipment is fully
automated. The storage facilities include four oil tanks with a total capacity
of about 18,000 m³. In 2012, the infrastructure of the complex was expanded by
constructing a refuelling point with a jet fuel capacity of 300 m³ per hour.
The expansion included the purchase of 18 modern tankers and the issuing of
licenses and the other approvals necessary for operations at Sheremetyevo.
