Skoltech is an international graduate research-focused university that was founded by the group of world-renowned scientists in 2011. Skoltech's curriculum focuses on technology and innovation, offering Master's programs in 11 technological disciplines. Students receive rigorous theoretical and practical training, design their own research projects, participate in internships and gain entrepreneurial skills in English. The faculty is comprised of current researchers with international accreditation and achievements.

Skoltech Lecture Hub at ARHE presents an online lecture by Alexey Cheremisin: “Is there enough oil in the world?”


The general perception that we are well past the hydrocarbon era and global oil reserves will likely be exhausted within decades is very wide of the mark. What is true though is that extracting oil becomes increasingly more complex, expensive, and less efficient, while oil prices keep plummeting.

Creating new oil production technologies is a major challenge for scientists and engineers worldwide, while a general concern for saving the environment and wildlife is driving “green” technology, a new trend in hydrocarbon recovery.

The lecture will offer insights into oil exploration and production, with the spotlight on advanced technologies and computational methods used to address this daunting task.

Alexey Cheremisin is an Associate Professor and Deputy Director at the Skoltech Center for Hydrocarbon Recovery (CHR). After graduating from the Physics Department of the Novosibirsk State University (NSU) and prior to joining Skoltech, Alexey worked at Schlumberger’s R&D department where he engaged in the development of new hydraulic fracturing technologies.
