The founder of a new area in the study of the earth interior, based on the integrated use of results of data interpretation of the geophysical well logging and petrophysics, is

V.N. Dakhnov is the honored worker of science and technology of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences, Professor, the founder of the first Department of Field Geophysics in the country and of a new area in the study of the earth interior, based on the integrated use of results of data interpretation of the geophysical well logging and petrophysics. From 1952 to 1964, V.N. Dakhnov was also the supervisor of a special laboratory of nuclear methods of well survey at Moscow Oil Institute named after I.M. Gubkin. During this period, the special laboratory proved the possibility of using the data of the standard neutron gamma-ray method of well survey for lithology differentiation and evaluation of the porosity factor and the shale volume factor of reservoirs as well as determination of their productivity.

The founder of the scientific and pedagogical school of oil and gas well drilling technology, the head of the Department of Oil and Gas Well Drilling at Moscow Oil Institute named after Ivan Gubkin is

Professor N.I. Shatsov was the author of the first textbooks on drilling oil and gas wells for universities and technical schools. He worked at the Department of Oil and Gas Well Drilling at Moscow Oil Institute named after Ivan Gubkin from the day of its foundation, and was the head of the department in 1938 1954. In the mid-1930s, N.I. Shatsov summarized the world experience in well drilling and his own developments in drilling practices, well design, and clay mud formulations. In 1932, N.I. Shatsov established a drilling room at the Department with full-scale samples of drilling tools, and in 1932 a clay mud laboratory with a full set of laboratory and field devices and a unique cutting laboratory with a stand for testing drill bits. On his initiative, a real drilling rig with an experimental well of 800m was built near the Institute building at Bolshaya Kaluzhskaya Street 6.

Activities to manage and control the flow of goods, energy, information and other resources are called

Logistics is the science of planning, control and management of transportation, warehousing and other material and non-material operations that are carried out in the process of delivering raw materials to a manufacturing enterprise. The oil and gas industry covers a huge range of various cargoes, and the subdivisions of the industry involved in supply, transportation, storage and distribution deal with materials in three phases: gaseous, liquid and solid. Logisticians in the oil and gas industry purchase, load, transport and store LNG, gasoline, valves, etc. while geography, climate, distance and other aspects require careful planning and an integrated approach to the organization of the logistics process.

A geological material that have the ability to store oil, gas and water (fluids) and give them away during development is called

Among the geological materials, reservoir rocks are defined as rocks that have the ability to store oil, gas and water (fluids) and give them away during development, and caprocks that do not have such ability and cover rocks (fluid seals).

The most important parameter of the collector layer is its filtration and volumetric characteristics, which determine the ability of collectors to contain (porosity) and transmit (permeability) fluids.

Neither ideal reservoir rocks, nor ideal fluid seals exist in the nature. Most geological materials are neither reservoir rocks nor fluid seals.

When was the Faculty of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics established?

The Faculty of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of Gubkin University is one of the oldest faculties, established in 1930 as the Faculty of Geology and Oil Exploration of Moscow Oil Institute named after I.M. Gubkin. Today, the Faculty has 8 departments, including 2 specialized departments. Detailed study of the structure of the Earth interior, forecasting oil and gas deposits, estimation of reserves and rational development are the major areas of study at the Faculty of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics. The Faculty carefully keeps and develops the traditions laid down by I.M. Gubkin, L.V. Pustovalov, M.M. Charygin, L.A. Ryabinkin, A.A. Bakirov, V.N. Dakhnov.
