Nostrum Oil & Gas keeps it simple: the company explores, develops, and exploits hydrocarbon resources in the Pre-Caspian Basin, west of Kazakhstan’s Mugodzhary mountain range. Operating four fields, the publically-traded company has established a stellar reputation for efficiency and for consistently attaining its corporate objectives.

Listed on the London Stock Exchange, and a constituent of the broader FTSE 250 Index, Nostrum Oil & Gas (NOG) maintains offices in London, Brussels, and St Petersburg.

It is headquartered in Amsterdam. Founded in 1997, to pursue drilling opportunities in Kazakhstan, the company started production in 2000, acquiring additional fields soon after. It debuted on the stock exchange in 2014.

NOG has become one of the largest oil and gas producers in Kazakhstan and boasts a sizeable investment programme to further improve its infrastructure. Thanks to the company’s sustained research efforts, NOG offers investors long-term value creation.
