Gazprom consolidating its design assets in single company
Gazprom has resolved to consolidate its design assets in a specialist company, namely Gazprom Projectirovaniye, to be headed by Oleg Andreev.
Gazprom Management Committee Chairman Alexey Miller held a meeting in St. Petersburg today to consider the main business activities of Gazprom Projectirovaniye.
“As Gazprom delivers new large-scale projects, enhanced requirements are imposed to the quality and timelines of the design process, and, most importantly, this kind of work should be advanced to a higher level. The design phase not only specifies technical solutions for our future construction projects, but also to a large extent determines their economic features. Consolidation of Gazprom’s design assets will help establish uniform standards of the design activity and considerably improve the work efficiency.
Oleg Andreev was authorized to supervise this activity. He is a real professional who went up the career ladder from a gas production operator to the director general of a largest production company in Gazprom. I am confident that his unique long-term experience will allow meeting all the challenges faced by the new company,” said Alexey Miller.
Oleg Andreev was born in the Bashkir ASSR in 1964. He graduated from Tyumen Industrial Institute in 1987, majoring in ‘technology and comprehensive mechanization of oil and gas field development’. He has an MBA degree and a PhD degree in Engineering.
From 1987 to 2001 he was promoted from a gas production operator to a gas field manager at Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg.
From 1998 to 2001 – Deputy Director General for Prospective Development at Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg.
From 2001 to 2015 – Director General of Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg.
From 2015 till now – Director General of Giprospetsgaz.
