Company history

Gazprom Armenia is focused on natural gas supplies and sales in Armenia’s domestic market. The company holds the leading position in the Armenian energy industry, which forms the backbone of the national economy. Today, 620 localities in Armenia are provided with natural gas, with the gasification level across the country reaching 95 per cent.

Gazprom Armenia executes the plan for modernizing and reconstructing the equipment of gas grids in order to lower actual methane emissions from gas grids and reduce gas leaks through participating in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects.

Due to a decrease in the Emission Reduction Unit price in the international markets, all CDM project-related activities, including emission reduction monitoring, have been temporarily suspended.

Gazprom Armenia’s social policy includes charity and sponsorship programs aimed mainly at supporting major cultural events, sports initiatives, educational institutions, and individual educational programs. The company implements social projects and holds annual events in support of orphanages, pre-school establishments, and educational institutions.
