The UGSS is the world’s largest gas transmission system and represents a unique engineering complex encompassing gas production, processing, transmission, storage and distribution facilities. It assures continuous gas supply from the wellhead to the ultimate consumer.

The UGSS includes 168.3 thousand kilometers of gas trunklines and laterals, 222 line compressor stations with 3738 gas compressor units totaling 43.87 thousand MW in capacity; 25 underground gas storages.

Centralized control, considerable ramification and parallel transmission routes endow the UGSS with a substantial reliability margin and ability to secure uninterrupted gas supplies even under peak season loads.

The Unified Gas Supply System is owned by Gazprom.
