Long Partnership: OAO GAZPROM.

We have been cooperating successfully with OAO Gazprom and their subsidiaries for years on scientific and technical matters. Current projects include, among other things, the optimization of operational management and maintenance of gas system technologies. This involves diagnosis using modern, innovative measurement technologies in conveyor pipe tours as part of drillings at underground natural gas storage locations. We are also cooperating on the development of ejectors for energy efficient injection into our cavern storage facilities. Other projects involve simulation models for the optimization of underground facility operation and membrane technologies for natural gas processing.
