This town is one of the gas centres of the country now: more than 11% of the Russian gas is produced here.


Historical reference

The earliest chronicle reference to Nadym is dated 1146. This was a place for hunting, fishing, and trade. In the second half of XIX century for the reasons unknown the town was abandoned, now historians call that place Nadymskoye Gorodishche (Nadym Settlement).
The new settlement with the old name appeared some tens of kilometres away. This happened at the time of the discovery of the Medvezhye gas field in 1968. In 1972 Nadym has been granted the status of town.
