Ekibastuz (also spelled Ekibastus ) is a city located in Pavlodar oblast (region) of Kazakhstan, north-west of Pavlodar city. There is an airport in Ekibastuz city.

Ekibastuz history began in the 19th century. Kosim Pshembaev - a native Kazakh commissioned by Russians to look for minerals in Pavlodar region - found a coal field north-west of Pavlodar city. To mark the place he placed two big lumps of salt. And it gave the place its current name because “Ekibastuz” means “two lumps of salt” in Kazakh language. Soon the railroad was constructed and Ekibastuz settlement was founded in 1899.

The revolutions of 1917 in Russia and two World Wars distracted the attention from the exploitation of Ekibastuz coal field. Ekibastuz village was almost deserted. But in 1948 the first team of about 50 people started construction of the future Ekibastuz town.

December 1954 is an important date of Ekibastuz history. It was the date when the first train loads of coal were loaded. It was the beginning of Ekibastuz industrial development. In 1955 the millionth ton of the coal was produced here. The city status was given to Ekibastuz on 12 July 1957.
