to aspire to be the leader among design organisations of Russia, Ukrainian and the CIS countries, to manufacture high-quality design production with unconditional observance of treaty obligations, to expand types of service and geography of designed objects, to support corporate patriotism!

Historical Background: 1940's - 1960's

The Licichansk underground coal gasification (UCG) station designed by Donyuzhgaz was put into operation in April 1940. Its commercial operation evidenced that such black coal gasification stations could be built that promoted further construction of UCG stations in Donbass and other regions of the USSR. After the liberation of Donbass in September 1943 Donyuzhgaz carried out works for reconstruction of Donbas gas utilities.

In 1947 Donyuzhgaz Trust Company was reorganized into Stalino Branch of Giprogaztopprom Design Institute. In 1949 it was restructured into VNIIpodzemgaz, a design division of the National Research Institute for underground coal gasification. In 1956 it was restructured into Gipropodzemgaz Design Institute.

Within 1946-1955 a number of projects were developed for construction of the major gas generating stations at Chemical Integrated Works, Engineering Plants and other industrial enterprises.  Those stations were built and proved to be successful in operation, representing highly automated plants based on more advanced technology as compared to their foreign analogs.

Projects of gas generating stations were also designed for Public Republic of China, Korean Democratic People’s Republic, India.

At that time the following stations were designed: Podmoskovny and Shatsky UCG stations in the vicinity of Tula city, Kamensky in Rostov region, Angrensky in Uzbekistan, Yuzhno-Abinsky in Kuzbass, and others. UCG stations were designed and built taking into account the state-of-the-art advances of technological progress that enabled to market the license for art of manufacture and technical documentation in the USA in 1975.

In the early 60’s the Institute, as the leading institution, developed projects for supplying natural gas to the major enterprises of iron and steel industry and nonferrous-metals industry, chemical industry, power engineering, mechanical engineering in Donbass and Ural regions, as well as to the giants of the national automotive industry: the Volzhsky and Kamsky Automotive Plants.

In 1961 Gipropodzemgaz institute was restructured into Yuzhgiprogaz State Design Institute and in 1965 into YUZHNIIGIPROGAZ State Research and Design Institute.

In the early 60’s with discovery of the large gas fields in Kuban, Ukraine, Stavropoliye and Siberia the Institute launched a large-scale design of facilities for production and main pipeline transmission of natural gas.

  • development of Stavropoliye gas fields (Rasshevatsky, Mirnensky, etc.);
  • development of the gas and gas condensate fields in the eastern Ukraine (Krestinischensky, Mashevsky, Lanovsky, Yefremovsky, Novo-Troitsky, and others);
  • main gas pipelines and gas pipeline branches to the cities of Ukraine (the largest is the main gas pipeline "Yefremovka - Dikanka - Kiev ").

In those years YUZHNIIGIPROGAZ strongly addressed itself to development of projects for liquefied hydrocarbon gases’ supply for domestic and industrial purposes. It designed 34 automated cluster bases of liquefied hydrocarbon gases (LHG), currently operating in CIS countries, supplying propane-butane to population, transport and industrial enterprises.
