Thank you ALL!
It turned out that setting NLS_DATE_FORMAT environment variable is enough to
solve the problem. It's possible to get it worked right from PHP code, for
TO_DATE function didn't help
I didn't try to ALTER SESSION or change Oracle ini params

> The default format for dates returned from Oracle tends to be something
like 'DD-MON-YY', thus giving only a short-form date. There are several
ways of changing this:
> * Use the TO_DATE function in your select, e.g.
> $sql = "select TO_DATE(A_DATE, 'DD-Mon-YYYY HH24:MI:SS') as
DATE_TIME from A_TABLE"
> * Use ALTER SESSION to set the default format for the current session
(NOTE: I haven't tried this (yet!)):
> $stmt = OCIParse("ALTER SESSION SET NLS_DATE_FORMAT = 'DD-Mon-YYYY
> * Change the default value of the Oracle initialization parameter
NLS_DATE_FORMAT (I haven't tried this either, as I don't have administrative
control of my Oracle database!).
