Nefteyugansk is one of the largest cities of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area. It is the only large city on River Ob that is located entirely on an island between two river distributaries.

Nefteyugansk occupies the area of 15379 hectares. Its population surpassed the number of 100 thousand persons in 2000, thus making it one of the largest cities of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area (along with Surgut and Nizhnevartovsk).

Nefteyugansk, with its speaking name of neft (i.e. oil) was destined to become the city of oil industry workers. It came to be on the Russian map thanks to the unique Ust-Balyksky oil field discovered there. The history of the future city began in July 1961, when a group of geological prospectors landed on the bank of River Jugansky Ob, near Ust-Baklyksky yurtas (nomads tents). In 1967 the working settlement Nefteyugansk received the status of a city.
