“Over 50 years, Gazprom transgaz Nizhny Novgorod has evolved from the Line Pipe Operation Center into a largest gas transmission subsidiary of Gazprom. The company ensures reliable gas supply to fourteen Russian regions.
This activity is extremely important and responsible. Gas supplies to domestic consumers have always been and remain the main stream for Gazprom. Now they are gradually approaching the profitability of our gas exports to Europe. It means that the Russian gas market becomes a major competitor to the European one.
Surely, domestic gas sales will actively develop at a new level as the case was with the famous Nizhny Novgorod fair some time ago,” said Alexey Miller presenting the historic photo “Panorama of Nizhny Novgorod Fair in 1891” to the company team.
Gazprom transgaz Nizhny Novgorod is a 100 per cent subsidiary of Gazprom. The company comprises 26 branches including 16 line pipe operation centers.
Gazprom transgaz Nizhny Novgorod operates over 12.5 thousand kilometers of gas pipelines and branches, 18 compressor stations, and annually conveys more than 240 billion cubic meters of gas.
