Which educational institution was initially headed by I.M. Gubkin?

In 1922, I.M. Gubkin became the rector of Moscow Mining Academy, established on 4 September 1918 on the basis of the Faculty of Mining of Nizhny Novgorod Polytechnic Institute. Initially, the Academy included three faculties – the Faculty of Exploration, the Faculty of Mining and the Faculty of Metallurgy, but in 1920 at the initiative of I.M. Gubkin the Department of Oil Engineering was established, and in 1930 – the Oil Faculty. I.M. Gubkin and oil engineers

When was Ivan Gubkin born?

Ivan Gubkin was born in a peasant family on 21 September 1871 in the village called Pozdnyakova of Murom uyezd of Vladimir governorate. He was a gifted person, the founder of petroleum geology, whose ideas today continue to inspire researchers. His forecasts in the field of oil-and-gas-field formation and placement continue to come true. In his works, which became the handbooks of oil and gas workers, specialists still search for and find the landmarks to solve complex geological problems. Ivan Gubkin was the initiator of higher oil and gas education in the country, which annually prepares thousands of engineers and researchers for the industry and science, as well as workers for the oil and gas industries.

The chart that allows recalculating the fractional breakdown based on the curves of true boiling points is named after the famous scientist of the Department of Oil Refining Equipment (nowadays the Department of Oil Refining and Gas Processing Equipment). What is his name?

Professor A.I. Skoblo, Head of the Department of Oil Refining Equipment in 1943 – 1971, was the founder of the scientific and pedagogical school of processes and equipment for oil refining and gas processing, who laid the foundations for the calculation of technological processes and equipment for oil and gas refineries and industries. All textbooks on oil and gas refining technology use the “Skoblo chart”, which allows recalculating the fractional breakdown based on the curves of true boiling points.

The founder of the scientific school on information and measuring equipment in the oil and gas industry is

A.M. Melik-Shakhnazarov was the leading specialist in information and measuring equipment, whose scientific, pedagogical and social life was closely connected with the oil and gas instrument engineering, the challenges of automation of the oil and gas industry. Being the head of the Department of Electronics and Information and Measuring Technology in 1971 – 1986 (nowadays the Department of Information and Measuring Systems), he launched extensive research on the development of information and measurement systems for cluster directional drilling of slant, which led to the development of a number of original computerized information and measurement systems introduced at the first Kola Superdeep Borehole. The continuation of this work led to the development of well control systems during drilling.

The main component of natural gas is called

Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons, the basis of which is methane (CH4) – the elementary hydrocarbon with one carbon atom in its structure. Usually natural gas also includes heavier hydrocarbons, methane homologues: ethane, propane, butane and some non-hydrocarbon inclusions. None of these gases has any color or smell. The typical unpleasant smell that one is familiar with in our everyday life is artificially imparted to the gas and is called odorization. Sulfur-containing compounds are usually used as odorizing compounds, the substances which have unpleasant smell. Due to odorization gas leaks can easily be detected.

Which of the listed concepts fits the definition: “a measuring device, a sensing element that converts environmental parameters into a signal of different nature (discrete, analog, digital, etc.) suitable for technical use”.

The term “sensor” fits this definition. Unlike controllers, which are control devices, the sensor only receives input information from the medium and converts it into a signal at the output. Sensors are classified based on a measured parameter (pressure, level, flow sensors), according to the principle of operation (fiber-optic, magnetoelectric, photosensors), by the nature of the output signal (discrete, analog, digital), etc. There are also smart sensors, which function based on intelligent technologies.

When was the Faculty of Design, Construction and Exploitation of Pipeline Transport Systems established?

The Faculty of Design, Construction and Exploitation of Pipeline Transport Systems of Gubkin University was established in 1984 on the basis of the Faculty of Oil and Gas Production of Moscow Institute of Petrochemical and Gas Industry named after Ivan Gubkin. Today there are 6 departments at the Faculty, including 2 specialized departments. Theory and practice of developing highly reliable oil and gas transport, improving the efficiency of facilities and structures of the oil and gas industry are the major areas of study at the Faculty of Design, Construction and Exploitation of Pipeline Transport Systems. The Faculty carefully keeps and develops the traditions laid down by N.I. Belokon, N.N. Konstantinov, V.I. Chernikin, V.S. Yablonsky, V.A. Yufin, V.D. Taran, D.D. Barkan, M.B. Ravich, E.M. Kuzmak.

How many verses does the anthem of Gubkin University have?

The anthem of Gubkin University consists of 4 verses. It is traditionally performed by the choir of the Faculty of Oil and Gas Field Development under the guidance of the Professor of the Department of History E.N. Paliy at the main celebrations of the University. The author of music and lyrics is Yu.L. Greenstein. For the first time the anthem was performed by a symphony orchestra in 2000 at the celebration of the 70th anniversary of Gubkin University.

The oil industry is traditionally considered male. However, currently the number of women studying at the University is

Today about 40% of the total number of the University students are women. In 1930, only 9% of the total number of students were female students of the Oil Faculty at Moscow Mining Academy, in 1931 – 20% of female students at Moscow Oil Institute named after I.M. Gubkin, and in 1934 – almost 30%. Professor T.A. Lapinskaya, the outstanding scientist, Head of the Department of Petrography and Geochemistry of Sedimentary Rocks (nowadays the Department of Lithology) in 1960 – 1974 is widely known as the founder of the only scientific school in the world aimed to study the foundation of oil and gas areas in order to clarify its structure and history of geological development. In 1968, Professor G.L. Govorova became the first woman in our country to defend her doctoral dissertation in oil field development.
