This article studies the current state of the mineral resource base in the Kondinsky District of Khanty Mansiysk Autonomous Area (KhMAA) — Yugra. Historically, the Kondinsky District was the first in the Tyumen Region, where the industrial oil was discovered more than 50 years ago in 1960. Since then, the era of the oil industry development began in the Tyumen Region and all the Siberia.
Although the research projects moved from the first center of oil-recycling facilities in the Tyumen Region, the oil extraction in the Kondinsky District continues to this day. Facing the problems of extraction and transportation, primarily due to the natural features of the terrain, new extraction methods and approaches were developed at the fields of the Kondinsky District and later adopted in the rest of Western Siberia. The extraction of hydrocarbons and other minerals has significantly changed the territorial structure of the organization of production of the region from agricultural to industrial.
