History[edit]

It was founded in 1591 (according to other sources—in 1596) as the sloboda of Novonikolskaya (Новонико́льская) and later became a fortress.[citation needed] In a 1623 document, the settlement is referred to as the sloboda of Osinskaya Nikolskaya (Осинская Никольская), in 1678—as the sloboda of Osinskaya (Осинская), in 1732—as the village (selo) of Osa. It was granted town status in 1739.[citation needed] An important stage in development of town is a discovery of oil fields near Osa in 1960. Oil extraction started in 1963.
