Approved by the following companies:
The Advisory Group for Research and Development in Oil and Gas (hereinafter – the Group) is an ad-hoc advisory group to assist in identifying research and educational priorities to meet long, medium, and short-term economic needs. This ongoing collaboration enables Skoltech to prepare students with the technical and practical skills demanded by oil and gas companies investing in R&D.
The Group consists of representatives from Skoltech, major oil and gas companies, technological platforms that concentrate on carbon extraction and processing as well as other organizations and state bodies determining technological policy in this general sector.
• Elaborate on priority directions of scientific, technological, and educational programs in the area of carbon extraction and processing based upon the Group’s recommendations
• Provide for the exchange of knowledge among the Group’s collaborating companies and Skoltech together with universities and research institutions to orient programs training engineers and highly qualified technicians
• Prepare programs and initiate international educational projects based upon the technological needs of the Group’s companies
• Monitor and assess the scientific and practical significance of research conducted in part by Skoltech addressing the interests of the Group’s companies
• Collaborate with other Skoltech Advisory Groups in overlapping areas
Skoltech’s Vice President for Industrial Cooperation and State Programs coordinates the activities of the Group.

In the summer of 2014, Skoltech initiated the formation of a consortium in the field of oil and gas technologies jointly with Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow State University, Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas and supported by industrial partner OJSC “Gazprom Neft.” This consortium received a grant for the next 3 years (announced 15 September 2014) from the Federal budget as part of the Federal Target Program “Research and development in priority areas of scientific and technological complex of Russia for 2014-2020.”
The title of the project : “The comprehensive study of the Bazhenov Formation” – a group of non-conventional oil-containing rock formations that was revealed in an area of about one million square kilometers in Western Siberia.
The project will be implemented by the Center for Hydrocarbon Recovery jointly with the project partners.
