Gazcomplectinpex marks 40th anniversary
Today marks the 40th anniversary of Gazkomplektimpex, a 100% Gazprom subsidiary.
The Soyuzgazkomplekt All-Union State Trust was founded back in 1964 to organize centralized supplies of materials and equipment to the gas and oil production industry facilities under (re)construction. In 1991, the Trust was reorganized into the Gazkomplektimpex State Production Association. In 1999, Gazkomplektimpex was incorporated as a limited company.
Since its foundation, Gazkomplektimpex has converted into a multy-service business with a manifold network of affiliates (10 branches in various Russian regions) specializing in deliveries of gas production, drilling, petrochemical equipment and machinery, pipes, chemical materials and fuel, pipeline fittings and gas cranes, timber, electrical equipment, communications devices, machine-building and other output.
Over 1965 to 2001, Gazkomplektimpex took part in the construction of all the gas production, processing and transmission facilities in Russia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, the Ukraine and Belarus.
Under Gazprom’s Order N57 on the regulated procurement for Gazprom’s subsidiaries, dated 21 June 2002, Gazkomplektimpex became a centralized supplier of goods and equipment for the Gazprom Group’s needs. This move allowed Gazprom to enhance the financial flow transparency and initiate a scheduled transition to the contest-based procurement.
