(Vandaag precies 54 jaar geleden op 6 april 1963 wordt de NV Nederlandse Gasunie opgericht. Het bedrijf draagt zorg voor het transport en de verkoop van het Nederlandse aardgas. Op 9 juli 1963 besluit de directie met tegenzin en onder grote politieke druk dat het hoofdkantoor definitief in de stad Groningen zal worden gevestigd. Het duurt echter nog tot 1968 voordat dit ook daadwerkelijk gebeurd. De Gasunie is sinds 1994 gevestigd in het markante Gasuniegebouw aan de zuidwest kant van de stad, ingeklemd tussen de A7, de zuidelijke rondweg en de paardenrenbaan in het Stadspark.)
