Company History

The blue fuel first appeared in the Urals in 1963 upon the commissioning of the Bukhara – Urals gas pipeline. The Gas Trunkline Directorate Bukhara – Urals was created on January 28, 1964 as operator of the new gas trunkline.

In 1974 the Gas Trunkline Directorate Bukhara – Urals was renamed Uraltransgaz.

Over 1980s gas from northern fields arrived in the region via the Igrim – Serov – Nizhni Tagil and Urengoy – Chelyabinsk gas pipelines.

On March 3, 2008 Uraltransgaz was renamed Gazprom Transgaz Yekaterinburg.

On January 28, 2004 Gazprom Transgaz Yekaterinburg celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Environmental Protection

In 1987 Gazprom Transgaz Yekaterinburg switched its motor vehicles to gas motor fuel. By now, 1,989 motor vehicles have been reequipped.

In 2004 Gazprom, the Russian Railroads and the Sverdlov Oblast approved the joint Program for the launch of pilot operation of locomotives powered by liquefied and compressed natural gas on the testing ground of the Sverdlov railroad. The Program is targeted at raising the financial and environmental efficiency in mainline and shunting locomotives. The activity related to switching locomotives to gas is considered a most efficient one as it enables to substantially decrease soot, nitrous oxide, hydrocarbon and sulfur dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. In addition, the total toxicity of exhaust gases is 3–5 times lower compared to diesel emissions.

Care for the nature of the Urals is a prioritized activity of Gazprom Transgaz Yekaterinburg
