II International Summer School in Petroleum Engineering “Samotlor-2018”

The II International Summer School in Petroleum Engineering “Samotlor-2018” is organized by the Industrial University of Tyumen(Nizhnevartovsk branch). The course provides a comprehensive overview of Geology, Exploration, and Production of hydrocarbons at Samotlor, the biggest oil field ever found on the territory of the former USSR. 

Development of the Samotlor Oil Field, discovered in the 1960s, was a challenging experience for the Soviet oil industry. Harsh climate conditions with extremely low temperatures in winter, endless swamps, remote location - all that required new technologies, and those technologies made Samotlor special.  

The School will take place in the town of Nizhnevartovsk, the closest to Samotlor. Students will be able to:
- get acquainted with the history of Russian oil production industry, geology, petroleum development and drilling technologies and equipment;
- visit oil production industrial companies and units;
- see historical and cultural sights located in Nizhnevartovsk and the capital of the region – Khanty-Mansiysk;
- meet Russian students and get acquainted with the Russian educational system.
