Gazprom is a global energy company with its businesses extending across Russia and throughout more than 40 countries worldwide. Gazprom has long believed it has a responsibility to give back to the communities it works within and its social goals to promote a healthy lifestyle, an harmonious upbringing of a physically strong generation and worthy performances at International sporting events were a natural fit with the Nord Stream Race.
Gazprom's major business lines are geological exploration, production, transportation, storage, processing and sales of gas, gas condensate and oil, as well as generation and marketing of heat and electric power. Gazprom views its mission in reliable, efficient and balanced supply of natural gas, other energy resources and their derivatives to consumers.
Gazprom holds the world's largest natural gas reserves. The Company's share in the global and Russian gas reserves makes up around 18 and some 72 per cent respectively. Gazprom accounts for about 77 per cent of the Russian and 15 per cent of the global gas production. At present, the Company actively implements large-scale projects aimed at exploiting gas resources of the Yamal Peninsula, the Arctic Shelf, Eastern Siberia and the Far East, as well as hydrocarbons exploration and production projects abroad.
Gazprom is a reliable supplier of gas to Russian and foreign consumers. The Company owns the world's largest gas transmission network - the Unified Gas Supply System of Russia with the total length of 164.7 thousand km. Gazprom sells more than half of overall produced gas to Russian consumers and exports gas to more than 30 countries within and beyond the former Soviet Union.
Gazprom is the only producer and exporter of liquefied natural gas in Russia.
The Company is among Russia's five largest oil producers and the largest owner of power generating assets in the country. These assets account for 17 per cent of the total installed capacity of the national energy system.
Gazprom pursues the strategic objective of establishing itself as a leader among global energy companies by diversifying sales markets, ensuring reliable supplies, increasing operational efficiency, as well as exploiting science and technology potential.
Nord Stream is a natural gas pipeline which links Russia and the European Union through the Baltic Sea. The first of Nord Stream’s two parallel pipelines became operational in November 2011, the second in October 2012. The total capacity is enough to supply more than 26 million European households.
This international joint-venture project by major energy companies Gazprom, BASF SE/Wintershall Holding GmbH and E.ON SE, N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie and GDF SUEZ S.A. is an important contribution to long-term security of supply and a milestone of the energy partnership between the European Union and Russia. The Nord Stream Pipeline offers a relevant route and context for the race. Due to its dimension and active stakeholder and public engagement, Nord Stream has become a symbol of international cooperation as the Nord Stream Race also intends to. www.nord-stream.com
