The settlement of Komsomolsky was built in 1962 to support timber and natural gas industries.[citation needed] The settlement grew as the gas fields of Western Siberia were being explored, and the production association Tyumentransgas (since 2007 GazpromTransgazYugorsk) developed. In March 1959, subdivisions of railway troops started the construction of the "Ivdel-Ob" railway.[citation needed]

The town was renamed Yugorsk in July 1992. The name originates from the name of the land "Yugra", or "Yugoria"—the place where the Khanty and Mansi peoples live.[citation needed]
