World oil market and macroeconomic conditions in Russia during first half of 2001 resulted in high profitability of operations and ensured further increase of Group's financials. The group's balance structure and liquidity notably improved profitability of operations and maintained high liquidity.

The financials grew due to the increase in the volumes of production and sales, and cost reduction. Intensive increase of crude production (not including the effects of acquisitions and dispositions) by LUKOIL's subsidiaries amounted to 1.6% - oil (38.7 mln. tons) and 6.0% - gas (2.6 bln. m3) over first half of 2001. The highest increase in crude production was achieved by OAO KomiTEK (+13.9%), OAO "Arkhangelskgeoldobicha" (+50.7%), ZAO "LUKOIL-Perm" (+6.2%), group of projects on Caspian and in Azerbaijan (+11.3%).

The increase in drilling for 1st half year of 2001 was 35.9% - to 1.1 mln. meters (29,7% increase in exploration and 37.5% in operational drilling). 365 wells were drilled and completed, 6 new fields and 5 deposits of hydrocarbons discovered.

Refining throughput on Company's own refineries increased by 9.6%. The increase was solely provided by Company's foreign refineries in CIS countries and Eastern Europe.

Principal marketing subsidiaries of the Company in Russia, Europe and US sold 3.4; 0.3 and 1.6 mln. tons of refined products using the retail networked owned. The number of petrol stations owned and leased carrying the LUKOIL's flag increased up to 2641 units by the middle of 2001. 684 petrol stations operated under franchise agreements, including the retail network in Bulgaria.

0.6 mln. tons of commercial products were produced by the Company's petrochemical plants in Saratov, Stavropol, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine during the reporting period (25.1% increase). LUKOIL's gas refineries increased the volume of crude produced up to 0.75 mln.(by 7.5%)

Currently the Company employs 136.5 thousand persons.

The Company continued to invest heavily in 2001. Group's total investment exceeded $1402 mln. over the 6 months of 2001.
