Company history

The company history started on February 3, 1966 when the Tyumen Branch of VNIIGAZ was set up according to Order No.145 by the USSR Gas Industry Ministry. In May 1971 it was transformed into SibNIPIgaz under Tyumengazprom. In January 1973 the company received its present name – TyumenNIIgiprogaz. It was the time when the giant Urengoy field was developed on the basis of widely applied innovative technologies and solutions developed by TyumenNIIgiprogaz specialists. Drilling of directional wells was adopted, the issues of casing collapse in wells drilled in permafrost soil were addressed. In 1983 the first directional well was drilled in permafrost conditions under the design and supervision of TyumenNIIgiprogaz specialists.

In 1980 a comprehensive approach to the development process was shaped stipulating the synergy of research, design and production. The Tyumengaztekhnologiya Research and Production Association was shaped on the basis of TyumenNIIgiprogaz. It comprises a number of entities including the Experimental Plant. In 1993 the Association was dissolved.

On January 14, 2002 according to Decree No.2 by the Gazprom Management Committee, TyumenNIIgiprogaz was assigned the responsibilities of the leading research company supporting production activities of gas companies in Western Siberia.

In 2003 a unique project of the Yety-Purovskoye and Vyngaiakhinskoye fields was developed as a unified gas production complex. The Vodopad electrocoagulation potable water treatment stations came into mass production.

In 2009 the company opened the first facility for core samples storage containing 70,000 running meters of core samples.

In 2011 the company launched gas production from the Cenomanian deposit in the Muravlenkovskoye field in line with the TyumenNIIgiprogaz design. The production process is based on automated and semi-autonomous technologies. The CGTU-N comprehensive gas treatment unit was brought into operation at the Nydinskaya area in the Medvezhye gas and condensate field. CGTU-N was designed by TyumenNIIgiprogaz and its equipment was manufactured at the Experimental Plant.

Major activities

TyumenNIIgiprogaz is a unique research and design production complex, the leading R&D provider for gas production companies in Western Siberia.

The company applies a comprehensive approach to pre-development and development of gas fields, gas and condensate fields as well as gas, condensate and oil fields. The scientific developments and design solutions of TyumenNIIgiprogaz are used by many companies of Western and Eastern Siberia and the industrial equipment manufactured by the Experimental Plant is used all over the country, saving time and ensuring efficiency.

All the company’s activities are certified according to ISO 9001:2008 international standard and STO Gazprom 9001–2006 standard.

The company employs around 1,700 people.

Environmental protection

The Vodopad electrocoagulation potable water treatment technology has been developed and successfully put into operation. The said technology enables to purify water from highly contaminated sources to the level of SanPiN–01 Potable Water. The resulting precipitate is of Hazard Class 5 (non-hazardous) and, being a secondary coagulant, is permitted for discharge into the sewage system. Over 100 stations with a capacity from 5 to 8,000 cubic meters per day have been installed all over Russia. The Tarko-Sale town is fully supplied with potable water treated at the Vodopad station. These fully automated stations made of blocks produced in lots do not require specially trained staff.

Production has been arranged for ECO-Vodopad stations that cleanse washout water of deferrization stations bringing it to the potable quality level.

A remote ignition system developed by the company’s specialists enables to ignite flare units without pilot gas.

The gas-dynamic source of seismic vibrations makes it possible to carry out seismic operations in a marine environment and a transition zone as well as to explore the shallow part of the section in permafrost with no damage to the environment.

Social policy

The company pays great attention to human relations and fosters creative and sports potential of its employees.

There are two infirmaries with a wide range of healthcare professionals. The staff is fully supplied with supplementary medical insurance.

A weight room is available, and employees are welcome to play volleyball, futsal, basketball and table tennis. Spartakiada Games and other sport events take place every year.

The company’s amateur groups take winning places at corporate competitions including the corporate Fakel Festival of Gazprom.


TyumenNIIgiprogaz is going to retain its position in Western Siberia and intensify its activities in Eastern Siberia and the Far East as well as penetrate foreign markets. A number of technologies and equipment that are popular in the gas industry should be more widely applied in other sectors, for instance, in the housing and utilities sector. The company is planning to build the second facility for the core samples storage.
