An approach to step-by-step automation of management of gas transmission system of Ukraine using the methodology defined by ANSI/ISA-95 standard and modern methodology for pipeline integrity management is considered in the paper. The approach assumes preservation and development of existing means for automation of technological processes, as well as already implemented software systems for modeling, planning, optimization and management of the main gas pipelines and underground gas storage facilities and formation on their basis of an automated operational management system that meets the requirements of this standard. According to the proposed approach, the implementation of the automated system is considered as a combination of two processes, each of which consists of three stages, performed iteratively. The first process includes creation of an operational management system, introduction of automatic monitoring of parameters of the technological and physical processes and formation of an information system as regards ensuring operational management and control of the technological processes. The second process includes formation of the information system for supporting the business processes, as well as introduction of an automated corporate governance system and of automatic monitoring of business processes. Key words: Gas Transmission System, Automation of Management, Integrity Management of Main Gas Pipelines, MES
