Gazprom is a global energy company basically focused on geological exploration, production, transportation, storage, processing and marketing of gas and other hydrocarbons as well as electric power and heat energy production and distribution.
Gazprom’s mission is to provide maximally efficient and well-balanced gas supply to Russian consumers as well as to secure a high degree of reliability when implementing long-term gas export contracts.
Gazprom Group possesses the world’s largest natural gas reserves. As of December 31, 2008 the Group’s A+B+C1 resources were estimated at 33.1 trillion cubic meters.
