The company’s history is inextricably linked to the evolution of the Russian gas industry. In the 1950s, advanced methods of gas and condensate field development and gas treatment were put into practice at the Leningradskoye field located in the north of the Krasnodar Territory. In the 1960s, it was Kuban that supplied Moscow and central Russia with gas. In November 1965, the Kubangazprom Production Association was set up under the Gas Industry Ministry.

Throughout the years of its existence, Kubangazprom had become a powerful and versatile production complex embracing several businesses, such as hydrocarbon production and transmission, underground gas storage, and others. In 2007, Kubangazprom was restructured into a gas production company. In March 2010, Kubangazprom changed its brand name to Gazprom Dobycha Krasnodar. In 2015, the company celebrated its 50th anniversary.
