The next International Seminar-Conference “Thermal EOR” will be held in Chengdu

At the closing ceremony, ThEOR2017 announced that, starting in 2018, the conference will be held at partner universities of KFU. The third forum will be held in China – in the South-Western Petroleum University.

On June 23, the Second International Seminar-Conference “Thermal methods of EOR” was completed at the Kazan Federal University. At the closing ceremony, they summarized the results of the conference, adopted a resolution and voiced plans for the future. So, for example, starting next year, ThEOR will change the registration – in October 2018 the forum will be held in the Chinese city of Chengdu, where one of the buildings of the South-Western Petroleum University is located. And in 2019 the event will either return to Russia, or “leave” for Turkey – Skletech and the Middle East Technical University are applying for the fourth seminar. Recall that the scientists of these universities are members of the organizing committee and the International Committee of the conference.


KFU and Ecopetrol signed an agreement on cooperation

KFU and Ecopetrol company signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of new methods for increasing oil recovery, exploration and prospecting for hydrocarbons, and upgrading the skills of employees of the oil company on the basis of KFU. The Colombian Petroleum Institute (Instituto Colombiano del Petróleo), with the Russian SAE EkoNeft, was responsible for implementing the agreement from the Colombian side. This agreement was a logical continuation of previous meetings and negotiations that took place in Colombia in the spring of this year.


KFU expands its cooperation with the Middle East Technical University

Within the solemn part of the plenary session of the International Seminar-Conference ThEOR 2017, an agreement was signed between the Kazan Federal University and the Middle East Technical University. The document provides for the expansion of joint projects in the field of developing technologies for oil production, academic exchange and exchange of research results. He also consolidates agreements aimed at closer integration of the experience of Kazan University into international practice. The signatures under the agreement were put by the rector of the KFU Ilshat Gafurov and the President of METU Mustafa Versan Kok.


KFU and Oil and Natural Gas Corporation India are planning to joint projects on the thermal methods of increasing oil recovery

Currently, preparations are being made for signing an agreement with the Institute for Reservoir Studies of the National Oil Company of India (ONGC). Under the agreement, it is proposed to work together on thermal methods for increasing oil recovery and for underground oil refining using catalysts and steam exposure. The project also includes research on monitoring and management of the in situ combustion process.


KFU will expand the technology of in-situ combustion in China

KFU and Xinjiang Oilfield Company have concluded a several contracts to study the technology of in-situ combustion for deposits in Karamay. Within the framework of the projects, studies will be carried out to determine the most optimal conditions for the oxidation of oil and initiation of combustion processes. Also, the StrAU EcoOil’s scientists will simulate the progress of the combustion process under various conditions associated with the gradation of pressure and temperature. It is worth noting that the active participation in the implementation of contracts will be accepted by Chinese colleagues. For example, scientists from the Southwest Petroleum University will be involved in the Tahe field project. This is one of the deepest deposits in the world, located at a depth of more than 5 thousand meters. Within the framework of the project, scientists from the two universities will evaluate the possibility of using the technology of in-situ combustion for the development of this field.

Recall that it was a close cooperation of the KFU with Chinese oil companies that came last fall during the visit of the university delegation to the Middle Kingdom.
