Gazprom pursues the strategic objective of establishing itself as a leader among global energy companies by diversification of sales markets, securing reliable supplies, improving performance and applying sci-tech potential.

Gazprom is unique for enjoying the advantage of being simultaneously an energy producer and supplier owning a potent resource base and a manifold gas transport infrastructure. Due to Russia's geographical location, the Company has the potential to become an energy “bridge” between the European and Asian markets by supplying its own natural gas and providing gas transit services to other producers. This predetermines the essence of the Company's strategy in its key business areas.
