Company history

The company was set up in 2002 after Gazprom had consolidated its railway assets into a unified technological complex for hydrocarbon product transportation. Today, Gazpromtrans is a major railway rolling stock operator holding a 100 per cent share of the freight market for Gazprom’s products.

In 2003, the main branches of the company – the Astrakhan, Orenburg, Surgut, Ukhta and Urengoy offices – were established. By 2007, Gazpromtrans had entered the domestic market as a freight forwarding company rendering product transportation services to third parties.

In 2008, Gazpromtrans was assigned to act as the construction project owner and operator of the unique Obskaya – Bovanenkovo railroad. The Yamal branch was created in the same year. The Obskaya – Bovanenkovo railroad makes it possible to not only transfer equipment and construction materials all year round, but also transport liquid commodities like gas condensate from the Yamal Peninsula fields.
