Gazprom Transgaz Ufa, a major company in Bashkortostan’s fuel and energy sector, was established in 1953. The first gas torch was ignited at the Tuymazy – Ufa – Chernikovsk gas pipeline.

In the 1960s the company’s employees participated in the construction of the transcontinental Bukhara – Ural gas pipeline. In the late 1970s seven transcontinental gas pipelines, five of which running across Bashkortostan, were laid from Urengoy and Yamal to the country’s central part and West Europe.

In December 1999 all of the Republican regions were connected to the Unified Gas Supply System.

55 years later since its foundation Gazprom Transgaz Ufa pumps through its gas pipelines a fifth of the total gas volume produced by Gazprom.

Based on its performance results for 2006 and 2007 Gazprom Transgaz Ufa was awarded the Best Industrial Company of the Republic of Bashkortostan honorary diploma.
