In which city has Gubkin University never had a branch?

Gubkin University has never had a branch in Kazan. In October 1941, the Institute was evacuated to Ufa. A year later, in October 1942, a branch of the Institute began to work in Moscow, which was headed by A.V. Topchiev, future academician, laureate of the Lenin and State Prizes, vice-president of the USSR Academy of Sciences. In May 1943, the Institute in Moscow became the head again, and the one in Ufa became its branch (today Ufa State Petroleum Technical University). In 1956, a training and consulting center was established in Almetyevsk, which was later transformed into a branch of the Faculty of extramural studies of Moscow Institute of Petrochemical and Gas Industry named after Ivan Gubkin (today Almetyevsk State Oil Institute). Nowadays, Gubkin University has two branches in Orenburg, Russian Federation and Tashkent, Republic of Uzbekistan.

Which artwork of the University is included in UNESCO catalogs?

Understanding the role of the aesthetic principle in the development of a harmonious person, in the 70s the Institutes leadership made a decision to design a unified comprehensive project aimed to decorate the Institutes premises. To implement this project, on the second floor of the main building the artist O.P. Filatchev created the magnificent painting called Students, which is nowadays included in UNESCO catalogs as a monumental painting of the second half of the 20th century, as well as in the Cultural Heritage Register of Moscow. The wall painting consists of five compositions Entering the Institute, The Laboratory, The Meeting of the Department, The Lecture and The Library. Among the figures of the central composition The Meeting of the Department, the author depicted I.M. Gubkin.

Underground hydraulics is the science about the movement of natural liquids and gases in porous medium, which was founded by

Underground hydraulics as a science was introduced by the Professor, Academician of the USSR Academy of Sciences L.S. Leibenzon, Head of the Department of Oilfield Mechanics in 1930 1936. In Soviet petroleum geological science in the 30s, along with the theoretical problems of prospecting and exploration of oil and gas fields, the other area called oilfield geology which covered the theory and practice of efficient development of oil and gas resources, was singled out. The theory of efficient development of oil and gas fields was based on a special discipline called underground hydraulics the science about the movement of natural liquids and gases in porous medium established by L.S. Leibenzon, who for the first time received a differential equation for evaluating the reservoir pressure with an unstable flow of ideal gas in it, which was later called the Leibenzon equation.

The leading researcher of tectonics and oil and gas potential of the Caspian Basin, the founder of the Department of General Geology of Moscow Oil Institute named after I.M. Gubkin is

Professor M.M. Charygin was a student of the Academician I.M. Gubkin, the founder of the Department of General Geology, director of Moscow Oil Institute named after I.M. Gubkin in 1939 1942. His name as an oil scientist became widely known in connection with the first major studies of tectonics and oil and gas potential of the Caspian Basin. In the 50s. within the framework of the first Caspian expedition, the scientists of the Department under the supervision of M.M. Charygin conducted a large-scale study of the region, the result of which was the first monograph on the Caspian region titled Tectonic structure and prospects of oil and gas potential of the Caspian Basin. On the map of oil and gas prospects, the authors in addition to promising areas showed specific drilling sites for reference and stratigraphic wells. Many of the wells indicated in the monograph became discovery wells of large oil and gas fields. For example, the Krasniy Kholm well, marked on the map, became the discovery well of the Orenburg Oil and Gas Condensate Field.

A tool for mechanical destruction of rocks is called

A drill bit is the key element of the drilling tool for mechanical destruction of rocks during drilling. The term bit has been known from an early period of the development of drilling techniques, when the only way to drill a hole was by cable drilling, which implied that the drill bit was similar to a carpentry tool of the same name. Drilling of oil and gas wells is mainly made by rock drill bits. Gubkin University scientists G.K. Shreibeg, V.N. Vinogradov, G.M. Sorokin were widely known in the country for their work to increase the durability of bits, particularly by wear resistance increase of components.

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 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.

What has the name of Gubkin University?

The galaxy in the Great Bear with the name Gubkin University under the registration number RUS 76832 appeared on 15 October 2013 on the eve of the first gathering of the best University students called Star Start. The Foundation of Gubkin University Alumni presented the galaxy to the University, and the first star registered in Gubkin University galaxy became the hypergiant star Academician Ivan Gubkin. The hypergiant star is a star of huge mass and size, the brightest and rarest, the mass of which is hundreds of times larger than the Sun.

Annually in April Gubkin University hosts a scientific conference, which is called

The Conference Oil and Gas was held for the first time in 1946 at Moscow Oil Institute named after I.M. Gubkin, where only 10 reports were presented. In 2010, the Conference was given the status of international. Since 2016 the Conference has been held with the support and direct participation of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, and since 2018 the Conference has been held by the order of the Government of the Russian Federation. In 2019, the Conference brought together over 2,000 participants from 410 industry organizations representing 15 countries of the world.
