Aksai history

After large Karachaganak oil and gas deposit was found Aksai town began rapidly growing. In early and mid 1980s builders from Czechoslovakia, GDR, Hungary and Bulgaria arrived to Aksai, they participated in constructing of technological lines at the deposit and dwellings.

First it was decided that deposit raw would wholly be transferred for processing to Orenburg gas-processing plant. Since that time the names like “Czech”, “German” house, “Hungarian” town are preserved in the city. At present foreign professional working at the deposit dwell in the district of Czech builders.

It was that very time when several underground nuclear explosions were held out to create underground reservoirs for keeping gas. At present all the hollows formed as a result of explosions are laid up and are not used in productive process. Kazakhstan National nuclear center takes control of the hollows condition.
