Novy Urengoy (Russian: Но́вый Уренго́й) is a city in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Russia. Population: 104,144 (2010 Census preliminary results);[1] 94,456 (2002 Census);[2] 93,235 (1989 Census).[4] It is served by the Novy Urengoy Airport.

It was founded in 1975 after the discovery of the Urengoy gas field, one of the largest in Russia. Town status was granted to it in 1980.

A major business of the district is oil and gas production, with one of the largest gas fields in the world in the area and substantial prospects for further exploration. Gazprom is the main local employer.

The town is situated on the Tyumen–Novy Urengoy railway line. Traveling north from Tyumen, Novy Urengoy is the last station of significance. Noyabrsk is the previous station of significance.
