Company history

In 1966, the Orenburgskoye oil, gas and condensate field, which is unique in terms of the volumes and composition of gas reserves, was discovered 30 kilometers off the city of Orenburg on the border between Europe and Asia. In order to develop and operate the field, the Directorate for Gas Field Development and Operation and Gas Pipeline Construction (Orenburggazprom) was established in 1968.

Commercial gas production was launched in 1974. A gas processing plant and a helium plant were later built with the aim of processing the extracted resources, which contained hydrogen sulfide, mercaptan sulfur, and helium in addition to hydrocarbon components.
