Petroleum and Gas Engineering Institute

The institute offers undergraduate programmes in five specialities:

  1. 130501.65 Designing, constructing and operating gas-and-oil pipelines and storage facilities;
  2. 130503.65 Development and exploitation of oil- and gas-fields;
  3. 130504.65 Drilling of oil and gas boreholes;
  4. 130602.65 Machines and equipment of oil- and gas-fields;
  5. 130403.65 Open-pit mining.

Undergraduate programme in speciality Designing, constructing and operating gas-and-oil pipelines and storage facilities

was started in 1997. On completion the programme the graduates obtain qualification of an engineer. This programme trains high-qualified engineers for enterprises dealing with construction and operation of main and flow pipelines, pump and compressor stations, gas-storage facilities and petroleum-storage depots. The graduates of the programme are sought after by employers in different regions of the country. As the process of gasifying residential areas and industrial enterprises in North-Western federal district goes on the graduates are highly-demanded in the sphere of construction and operation of gas distribution networks and storage facilities in residential areas of the Arkhangelsk region. The study process lasts for five years.

Undergraduate programme in speciality Development and exploitation of oil- and gas-fields

was started in 1997. On completion the programme the graduates obtain qualification of an engineer. The study process lasts for five years. School leavers take great interest in this programme. The students acquire knowledge about technology of development and exploitation of oil-, gas- and gas condensate fields; technical equipment, apparatus and means for extracting and pretreatment of well products; deep and super-deep wells. The graduates may be employed both in Russian and foreign oil and gas companies and oilfield service companies.

Undergraduate programme in speciality Drilling of oil and gas boreholes

was started in 1998. On completion the programme the graduates obtain qualification of an engineer. The study process lasts for five years. This proramme is aimed at the applicants who are romantic and ready to face difficulty as they are among the first people who take part in forecasting and exploring hydrocarbon deposits. The students gain knowledge about equipment and technology of drilling oil and gas boreholes, drilling involved in development and exploitation of oil-, gas- and gas condensate fields; deep and super-deep wells, covering all stages of borehole construction, also well servicing and workover. The graduates of this programme are widely sought after by drilling company employers.

Undergraduate programme in speciality Machines and equipment of oil- and gas-fields

 was started in 1997. On completion the programme the graduates obtain qualification of an engineer. This programme is aimed at those who are interested in different kinds of machines, designing and inventing and would like to gain broad background in research methods and means of increasing reliability and durability of equipment, machinery and structures for oil and gas engineering; elaboration of design documentation and specifications, construction, fit-up, test, adjustment, assembly, operation and repair of drilling and oil-field equipment, oil and gas processing and offshore oil and gas facilities. Career prospects for the programme graduates are available in design organizations, machine-building enterprises, oil fields and enterprises on hydrocarbons transportation. The study process lasts for five years.

Undergraduate programme in speciality Open-pit mining

was started in 1999. On completion the programme the graduates obtain qualification of a mining engineer. The graduates may deal with designing, organizing, mining technology and large-scale mechanization involved in open-pit mining (surface mining as opposed to underground mining). Mining engineers may be employed in design mining organizations, mining companies, processing plants including those which deal with extracting precious materials - diamonds, gold and platinum. The study process lasts for five years.
