New Ideas in Petroleum Geology

25 March 2013

Petroleum Geology Department invites You for the plenary session and the workshop

«New Ideas in Petroleum Geology» devoted to the 60th anniversary of the Department

May 30 – 31st, Faculty of Geology, Lomonosov Moscow State University

May 30, 10.00 - plenary session

(MSU main building, room 611)

During the last 60 years Petroleum Geology Department has been preparing a lot of professional experts and scientists. The department has been taking part in the many exploration projects of oil, gas and coal. As a result the powerful scientific and laboratory potential was formed which contribute to the exploration both onshore and offshore basins. Besides the regional basin analysis there is strong evaluation of unconventional resources including shale oils, heavy oils and tight reservoirs. These scientific issues will be discussed during our workshop as well as the results of our activity during the last years.

May 31st, 10.00 round tables:

1. Exploration of giant oil and gas fields in the new regions

2. Unconventional hydrocarbon resources

3 . Coal and gases of coal fields

1. Exploration of giant oil and gas fields in new regions

In 1945 the famoust petroleum geologist Ignaty Brod formed the Department of Natural Gas. later, in 1953 the Department received the name "Petroleum Geology". Scientific laboratories of geology and geochemistry of oil, gas and coal were created, which work till present time. For many years the Petroleum Geology Department have benn preparing the specialists for oil and gas industry

Professional petroleum geologists are being prepared within the Petroleum Geology department based on the fundamental knowledge and experience of research and industrial work.

We are glad to cooperate and are ready to make the contribution to development of research and production capacity of the petroleum industry.
