The Center for Oil and Gas Exploration is located at the Faculty of Earth Sciences of SBU. It has been approved by the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology in 2017. The main focus of this center is hydrocarbon reservoirs exploration. The activity areas of the research center are as follows:

  1. Organic Geochemistry:
  • Source rock evaluation
  • Molecular analysis of source rock extracts, oil and asphalts
  • Hydrocarbon /non-hydrocarbon gas analysis
  • Stable isotopes analysis
  1. Reservoir Geochemistry:
  • Reservoir compartmentalization and continuity studies
  • Reservoir souring studies
  1. Petroleum System Modelling:
  • Fluid inclusion analysis and interpretation
  • Modelling of generation and migration of fluids from source rock to trap
  • Thermal history and evolution studies of sedimentary basins
  1. Petroleum Geophysics and Geomechanics:
  • Petrophysical study
  • State of the art RockPhysics models
  • Seismic interpretation and assessment
  • Numerical modeling of visco-elasto-plastic coupled phenomena in porous media

International cooperation with prestigious universities, such as the Russian Academy of Sciences (Russia), Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia), the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (Russia), Kazan Federal University (Russia), and the University of Lorraine (France).
