About the Company

In  1993,  a  group  of  high  officials  from  the  oil  and gas  industry,  headed  by  the  future  Minister  of  Energy  (1997-2000)  –  Mr. Petr I. Rodionov  – established  SIGMA-GAZ  a closed  joint-stock  company.  Over the next 14 years, the company has been developing  strenuously,  accumulating  assets, enhancing  its material and technical base,  and, as a result,  has taken a leading  position in the market of oil and gas products of the North-West  region of Russia.  In addition,  in the 1990s  SIGMA-GAZ  has been  actively  acquiring  property,  engaged in the financing  of Zenit  football  club,  and has built the first natural  gas liquefaction  plant in Russia.  After the default of 1998,  the company  began to experience  difficulties and slowed down its pace. In the early 2000's a new manager Mr Vladimir V. Dunin came to SIGMA-GAZ, which completely changed the entire top management of the company, drastically reorganized  all  companys  lines  of  activity  and  made  the  company  one  of  the  leaders in the oil  and  gas  industry  in the North-West  of  Russia  again. In 2007,  Vladimir  Dunin  became  the sole owner  and  the  President  of  SIGMA-GAZ  Group  of  Companies  (see more at: www.vladimirdunin.com).
