The settlement of Neft Daşları was built in 1949 after oil was discovered there at 1,100 meters beneath the Caspian Sea and it became the world’s first offshore oil platform.

By 1951, the Neft Daşları was ready for production, equipped with all of the infrastructure needed at the time. Drilling platforms were erected, oil tanks installed, and docks with enclosures for ships were built. The first oil from the Neft Daşları was loaded into a tanker in same year.
