Nizhnekamsk: Russian Oil Refining Capital

Posted on November 21, 2014 by tim

Nizhnekamsk is an industrial city in Russia, the largest oil refinery and chemical plant in the whole of Europe. The city is in the Tatarstan region of Russia, which has huge oil reserves – they say there will be enough to produce the same amounts of oil as they do now for at least thirty more years – the same volume each year. So one of our favorite photographers, Slava, has visited this place and we can see its huge chemical facilities from the air.  

So this city has 235,000 people living in.

Because it is in the Tatarstan region of Russia, it’s considered to have a large muslim population, so it has a big mosque.

The main street of the city is called… “Chemical Industry Workers Avenue”.  The living blocks of the city are separated from its huge chemical industries.

This is probably the only city to have a spiral “@” like house.

So let’s get down to business. Nizhnekamsk city is the largest oil and chemical industrial city in Russia.

Look how huge it is. It is officially the biggest chemical plant in Europe. 

It makes rubbers, plastics, tires, etc, etc.

Over 17,000 people work here.
