The goal of the meeting was to communicate Gazprom’s supplier and product requirements to domestic manufacturing companies. The range of issues considered included procurement and logistics, Gazprom order placement, quality management and standardization procedures, promotion of domestic industry development, import replacement, implementation of novel technologies and Gazprom’s experience with local manufacturers. The meeting featured addresses by heads and specialists of OOO “Gazkomplektimpeks”, Association of Oil and Gas Equipment Manufacturers, Russia Bank and manufacturing companies. In his speech, Mr. Fedorov focused on the Gazkomplektimpeks supplier management system and urged industry executives to participate in Gazprom’s tenders. Gazkomplektimpeks is a major equipment buyer, and its supplier management system is very important and is an example for all companies of the oil and gas industry. Today, many oil companies are aware of the need to discuss and coordinate contractor requirements and create a uniform system. ОАО “Gazprom” developed and adopted uniform supplier requirements that, experts say, after some adjustment may be adopted by the majority of Russian oil and gas industry companies.
