MOSCOW, December 29, 0:27 /ITAR-TASS/. Dividends of Russia’s gas giant Gazprom for the current year may drop by 2.6 billion roubles (USD 1 = RUB 32.63) to 139.3 billion roubles due to the drop in gas production and demand, the Bloomberg agency quoted a report drafted for a governmental meeting on the company’s investment program and budget for 2014.
Upon results of 2013, the company’s dividends may amount to 5.88 roubles per share versus 5.99 roubles in 2012. In 2011, Gazprom paid dividends at the rate of 8.97 roubles per share.
