About us

Once upon a time, just over ten years ago, a London-based energy trading company called Gazprom Marketing & Trading Ltd (GM&T) acquired a small business gas supplier in Cheshire so it could sell gas directly to industrial and commercial users in the UK.

GM&T’s retail business, known as Gazprom Energy, was born in 2006 and since then we've gone from strength to strength.  We've expanded into new territories, entered new markets, grown our customer base and employed more people.

Our relationship with Russia

We’re often asked about our heritage and although we’re part of a large and complex company, our relationship with Russia is fairly straightforward.

Gazprom is an open joint stock company established in Moscow in 1989 as a successor to Russia’s state run gas company.  There are several hundred Gazprom subsidiaries both inside and outside Russia and the Gazprom group has close to 400,000 employees around the world.

One of Gazprom’s subsidiaries is Gazprom Export, the world’s largest exporter of natural gas. Gazprom Export’s head office is in St Petersburg and it also has many subsidiaries, including Berlin-based Gazprom Germania which is a group of internationally operating companies.

Our parent company, London-based Gazprom Marketing & Trading GM&T is one of Gazprom Germania’s subsidiaries.  GM&T was established in 1999 to manage Gazprom's marketing and trading activities in the liberalised markets of Europe.

Gazprom Energy is the brand name for GM&T’s retail subsidiaries and activities. We’re the only Gazprom brand outside Russia that sells energy directly to end users.
