On December 28, 1973, the USSR Ministry of Gas Industry ordered to set up a construction and assembly company Soyuzcentrgaz intended to develop gas fields, build and repair gas mains, gasify population centers and build industrial and socio-cultural facilities.
Building gas supply lines
The company began its operations with renovating the Podzemgaz station in the vicinity of Moscow. Later on, the company built a gas compressor station in Serpukhov, gas lines in the Saratov and Lugansk Oblasts, retrofitted the Central Asia – Center Urals – Kuzbass gas trunklines and performed work under the state-run Non-Black Soil Zone Gas program. The employees of the company have made a noticeable contribution to the development of famous gas fields in Novy Urengoy and Strezhevoye. The structural units of Soyuzcentrgaz were used in cleanup operations at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, supplied drinking water to the Aral Sea area in Central Asia hit by an environmental disaster and rebuilt Armenian towns and villages damaged by the earthquake.
In 1993 the state-owned construction and assembly company Centrgaz was transformed into Centrgaz open joint stock company.
As of today, the company has built over 7,000 kilometers of gas trunklines and gas grids, and 5 compressor stations. About 200,000 facilities were supplied with gas and over 700,000 square meters of housing were commissioned.
Centrgaz is a multifaceted construction holding that includes construction and assembly organizations, modern production facilities to manufacture construction materials, structures and items, procurement and marketing entities and social infrastructure facilities. The company is outfitted with high-performance equipment operated by skilled staff. Centrgaz is licensed to perform all kinds of construction work, which allows it to secure high quality and quick pace of construction, comply with the government-imposed standards and guarantee reliability of the structures built by it.

The company invariably participates in international forums and exhibitions.
Currently, Centrgaz operates within an area stretching from Russia’s western borders to the Urals. The largest customers include Gazprom and its subsidiaries, executive authorities of the Russian regions, as well as business and production entities.

It built a European-level sports base, restored the pool, built Russia’s best heated and watered football field, and a Rekortan-covered racetrack. It also retrofitted the field-and-track arena now used for basketball, volleyball and track-and-field events.
Tula’ Central Stadium, Arsenal, has become the main venue for major sports events held among the domestic gas companies.
