Economy and history

Nyagan is one of the youngest towns in Western Siberia. It was established in 1965 as a forestry center; it is now principally a center of the petroleum and natural gas industries, and was originally named Nyakh (Нях). This toponym appeared on maps in the same year, but the town was renamed on August 15, 1985. The town territory is a waterlogged area, and the region is notable for sudden temperature drops. The railway from Yekaterinburg to the Ob region has passed though Nyagan since April 2, 1967. Nyagan Airport, which opened in 1993, handles the Russian Antonov An-24, Yakovlev Yak-40, and Tupolev Tu-134 aircraft. On September 1, 2000 a regional museum opened.
