The Orsk oil refinery was constructed in 1935, receiving the first oil through the new oil pipeline, Caspian-Orsk, on December 24 - this date is considered the birthday of the plant. On January 6, 1936, the plant produced its first gasoline. During the first year, the refinery processed 152.8 thousand tons of oil.
In 1939, the plant was named after the Hero of the Soviet Union Valery Pavlovich Chkalov, a test pilot, by the resolution of the USSR government
In 1942 the first oil lots were received. During the war, the refinery increased its yield by 2.5 times, expanding the range by almost five times.
Every third ton of oil for Soviet military equipment was from Orsk. The Orsk Oil Refinery received the Order of the Patriotic War, 1st class for supplying the Soviet Army and Navy during the war.
