Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement.
4.) An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation of consolidated financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements.
5.) We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

In our opinion the consolidated annual financial statements give a true and fair view of the equity and financial position of MOL Hungarian Oil and Gas Plc. as at 31 December 2011 and of the results of its operations for the year then ended.
Other reporting requirement - The consolidated business report

Management is responsible for the preparation of the consolidated business report in accordance with the Hungarian legal requirements.

In our opinion, the consolidated business report of MOL Hungarian Oil and Gas Plc. for 2011 corresponds to the disclosures in the 2011 consolidated annual financial statements of MOL Hungarian Oil and Gas Plc.
