The difficult years of the revolution, followed by the civil war and the tremendous work to restore the first oil fields, the feat of the Emba people during the World War II - all these are milestones of the formation of our company.

Along with the development of oil fields in those years, there was the development of Kazakhstani national staff, the descendants of which still work in "Embamunaigas" JSC and other oil and gas companies in the country, and also in other projects.  In the 1930s of the last century, an oil technical school was opened on the basis of Embamunaigas, and construction of the Guryev-Emba-Orsk oil pipeline began. The great demand for high-quality fuel in the military and post-war years, overall gave a powerful impetus to the development of the domestic oil production and refining industry. The Guryev Oil Refinery plant was built.
