Surgutneftegaz Valuated

Surgutneftegaz had a net cash position of $27.8 billion in the third quarter, Renaissance Capital estimated based on the company's financial reports.

The figure includes $15.8 billion in long-term financial investments and $12 billion in cash and short-term investments, analysts led by Ildar Davletshin said in a note Friday.

Surgutneftegaz, the Russian oil company with the biggest cash pile, may start using International Financial Reporting Standards in 2013, Renaissance Capital said. "We believe this will lead to a wider group of investors appreciating the strong financial position of Surgutneftegaz, with a likely rerating of the stock as a consequence," the analysts said.
