Ob-Irtysh River Shipping Company is a water transport company that arose in 1982. Now it is one of the largest cargo transportation organizations in Siberia and the Urals.

Ob Irtysh River Shipping Company

The need for its appearance was due to increasing volumes of oil production in the Tyumen region. The first ships were tankers and oil barges that delivered “black gold” to the Omsk oil refinery. At the same time, other cargo ships remelted building materials to create oil and gas pipelines. The main places of delivery were the northern regions of the Russian Federation.

With the help of the company's vessels, cargo is delivered to the fields of well-known oil producing companies in Russia, for example, LUKOIL.

“Ob-Irtysh River Shipping Company” to this day has practically become a monopolist of the Northern oil and gas fields, producing and transporting the lion's share of resources, controlling their prices and the amount of production.

In 1993, shares of the corporation were issued. As a result, private individuals now own the main documentation package. The state owns a quarter of all securities.
