History of Neftekamsk

Oil of the Arlansky field was found near Kasevo Village in 1956. From the beginning of its production in 1957 the village turned into an industrial community, and in 1963 it became a city under the name Neftekamsk, which reflected the oil specialization of the city and its location near the Kama River. In 2004 the industrial settlement Energetic serving the Karmanovsky state hydro power plant was formed near the city.
