Nogliki (Russian: Ноглики) is an urban locality (an urban-type settlement) and the administrative center of Nogliksky District of Sakhalin Oblast, Russia, located near the eastern coast of the Sakhalin Island, about 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) inland from the Sea of Okhotsk shoreline and about 600 kilometers (370 mi) north of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Population: 10,231 (2010 Census);[3] 10,729 (2002 Census);[5] 11,546 (1989 Census).[6]


It was founded in the late 1940s with the beginnings of petroleum production in the area.[citation needed] It was granted urban-type settlement status in 1960.[citation needed]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Nogliki serves as the administrative center of Nogliksky District and is subordinated to it.[1] As a municipal division, the urban-type settlement of Nogliki and eleven rural localities of Nogliksky District are incorporated as Nogliksky Urban Okrug.[2]

Economy and transportation[edit]

Nogliki is a supplier for the oil fields Sakhalin I and Sakhalin II, located in the Pacific Ocean off the coast to the northeast. There is also some logging activity in the area around the settlement. The settlement is also the northern terminus of the Sakhalin Rail Network, with the narrow-gauge line reaching the settlement in 1978. Another railway connecting Nogliki with the town of Okha further to the north was completed in 1953; however, this line closed in to passenger traffic in the 1980s, with only occasional goods traffic thereafter.[7]

An airport servicing the nearby oil and gas developments opened in September 2007.[8]


The climate is harsh subarctic, with long, very cold winters only marginally moderated by the ocean and very cool, short summers.
