Members of the Board of Directors

The structure of the Gazprom Neft executive bodies is determined by the Charter and includes the Management Board and the CEO. The Gazprom Neft Management Board is the collective executive body that oversees its day-to-day operations. In accordance with the Charter of Gazprom Neft, the Management Board is formed by the Board of Directors upon recommendation by the Gazprom Neft CEO. The term of office of the Management Board is also determined by the decision of the Board of Directors. The requirements for the professional qualifications of the Gazprom Neft Management Board members are established by the Company’s internal documents.

Company CEO Alexander Dyukov (who was the first to run the Company in December 2006 and was re-elected for another five years in December 2011) serves concurrently as the Chairman of the Management Board, whose functional duties include organising the activities of the Management Board. In the absence of the Management Board Chairman, his functions are performed by one of three Deputy Management Board Chairmen: V.V. Yakovlev (First Deputy), V.V. Baranov or A.M. Cherner. A deputy is elected upon recommendation by the Management Board Chairman by a majority vote of the elected Management Board members. If the Chairman and the deputies are absent, the functions of the Management Board Chairman may be performed by any member of the Management Board based on the decision of the Management Board.

The Gazprom Neft Management Board considers matters on a scheduled basis taking into account the decisions of the General Meeting of Shareholders and the Board of Directors as well as matters submitted by the CEO and Management Board members.
