55 years ago, the country began commercial oil production. Since the discovery of commercial reserves, Belarusian oil companies have produced more than 136 million tons of “black gold”. They told reporters about the history of the enterprise, showed the oil production process and modern drilling technologies. Also, the wells, which since the beginning of operation have produced more than a million tons of “black gold”. In 1967, the first million tons of oil was produced in Belarus. This fact was demonstrated by a veteran of Belorusneft, then a 19-year-old laboratory assistant Natalya Mogilevich. Her picture with the jubilee millionth ton of oil was disseminated by all the central newspapers of the Soviet Union. After 5 decades, the news photographers of the republican media recreated the photoshoot.
