Company history

The Tomsktransgaz production association was established on June 28, 1977, pursuant to Order No. 133 of the USSR Gas Industry Minister. The company set out to construct Nizhnevartovsk – Parabel – Kuzbass, the first gas trunkline beyond the Urals, stretching for 1,162 kilometers.

Construction of Novosibirsk – Barnaul gas pipeline, 1984

The gas trunkline established a basis for gas supplies to Western Siberia. It was further developed and expanded in subsequent years. In addition to the Nizhnevartovsk GPP – Parabel and Parabel – Kuzbass pipeline sections, the company constructed such gas pipelines as Yurga – Novosibirsk (1982), Novosibirsk – Barnaul (1984), and Novosibirsk – Kuzbass (1996), as well as the second string of the Nizhnevartovsk – Parabel – Kuzbass gas pipeline, which had its sections of different lengths brought onstream in 1992, 1994, and 2011 in order to enhance pipeline reliability.

Between 1988 and 1996, the Northern Tyumen Region (SRTO) – Surgut – Omsk and Omsk – Novosibirsk gas pipelines were built. The Omskaya compressor station came onstream in 2008, assuring control over the gas flows from west to east and back, with gas surplus supplied to the European part of the country in summer.

In 2006, following the decision by Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk was entrusted with the operation of gas transmission systems constructed and acquired by Gazprom in Eastern Siberia and the Far East.

In 2008, the Barnaul – Biysk – Gorno-Altaisk gas trunkline with a branch pipeline to Belokurikha was completed.

A 392-kilometer-long gas trunkline connecting CGTU-2 of the Nizhne-Kvakchikskoye gas and condensate field to the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky automated gas distribution station was commissioned in 2010. A year later, the company brought into operation the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok gas trunkline with a total length of 1,600 kilometers and an annual capacity of 30 billion cubic meters. In 2013, the Kirinskoye Field OPF – Sakhalin MCS gas pipeline with a length of 139 kilometers came onstream.

The Power of Siberia project was launched in 2014. The first joint of the gas trunkline was welded in September. Power of Siberia will be pivotal to the gas supply system being set up in eastern Russia. This gas transmission system will convey gas from the Yakutia and Irkutsk gas production centers to consumers in the Russian Far East and China. With a total length of some 4,000 kilometers, it will have an annual design capacity of 38 billion cubic meters of gas.
