The Tomskoye Gas Pipeline Operation Center (GPOC) was established 30 years ago to service the existing Parabel – Kuzbass gas trunkline (214th–343rd kilometer section) and gas pipeline branches, maintain seven gas distribution stations and two gas filling stations, and provide uninterrupted gas supplies to the regional population.
“For 30 years, the facilities entrusted to us have worked reliably and efficiently,” said Alexander Masson, Director of the Tomskoye GPOC of Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk. “Working to ensure the safety of natural gas supplies to consumers, our employees demonstrate professionalism, devotion, competence and enthusiasm.”
The GPOC was set up as a result of restructuring, namely the dissolution of the Volodinskoye GPOC and the accession of another two industrial sites in Chazhemto and Parabel. Today, the Tomskoye GPOC encompasses four sites in Tomsk, Volodino, Chazhemto, and Parabel.
“The creation of the Tomskoye Gas Pipeline Operation Center became a milestone in the history of our company,” stressed Anatoly Titov, Director General of Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk. “In the 30 years of the Center’s existence, we have come a long way, and it has become a breeding ground for many subdivisions of the company. Indeed, the Center’s employees have much to be proud of!”
At present, the Tomskoye GPOC is one of the largest subdivisions of Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk. It operates 1,083.4 kilometers of gas pipelines and gas pipeline branches, 146 block valve stations, 16 pig trap stations, three compressor stations, 20 gas distribution stations, 12 boiler houses, 108 cathodic protection units, and two drainage protection units. The total length of the GPOC’s power and cable lines is 386 and 691.3 kilometers, respectively.
Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gazprom. It provides for the operation of gas transmission systems in 14 regions of Siberia and the Russian Far East.
The company operates more than 9,000 kilometers of oil and gas trunklines and pumps over 19 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk has 22 branches, including 16 gas pipeline operation centers, nine compressor stations, one booster station, 36 gas compressor units, 127 gas distribution stations, and 11 CNG filling stations.
The company’s quality management system complies with the STO Gazprom 9001–2006 (I and II), ISO 9001:2008, and GOST R ISO 9001–2008 standards. The ISO 14001:2004 environmental management system is also in place. In 2015, the company received a Russian Government Quality Award.

The Nizhnevartovsk Gas Processing Plant – Parabel – Kuzbass gas trunkline was put onstream 40 years ago. Supplies of associated petroleum gas from the Tyumen Region made possible the rational use of the valuable raw chemicals that had been flared before, providing energy to the extensive Kuzbass coal and metals complex and the chemical industries of the Kemerovo and Tomsk Regions.
