Moscow, Russia – October 17, 2016 - HMS Group (LSE: HMSG) announces today that it has signed a long-term framework agreement with Gazprom to deliver import-substitution equipment made by HMS’ facility, Kazankompressormash (KKM).

In accordance with the agreement’s terms, KKM will provide Gazprom with manufacturing, procurement and aftermarket services of modular compressor units, MKU TAKAT-series, based on screw compressors. The TAKAT compressor units will be made fully in accordance with the API 619 international standard.
