March 23, 2012

CJSC Stroytransgaz won the general contractor contract to build a 64.8 km section of the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta gas trunkline. Gazprom, the project’s investor, selected the company in an open tender closed on March 21.

"Bovanenkovo-Ukhta is a unique new generation gas transport system and Gazprom’s largest project,” Anton Rae, CJSC Stroytransgaz CEO said. “Our company had already taken part engaged in the project as a subcontractor. We then gained construction experience in extreme climate conditions, unprecedentedly unparalleled extreme conditions, to tell the truth. We are now happy to be awarded our first general contractor contract and to see our bid proposal found the best of all.”

Stroytransgaz has worked in Gazprom projects since 2009. The first contract received was to build a section of the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta pipeline.
