The scientific work of the department between 2015 and 2017 is conducted according to the following themes:
1. Development of innovative methods of production and transportation of oil and gas, methods of decrease of viscosity of viscous oil in the bottomhole zone by applying electrophysical treatment. Scientific managers: doctor of technical sciences, professorOringozhin E.S., executive in charge: associated professor Sabirova L.B.
2. Development of innovative and economically feasible methods of oil and gas production and disposal of oil contaminated soil and sulfur blocks. Scientific director: doctor of technical sciences, professorAkhmedzhanov T.K., executive in charge: candidate of technical sciences, associated professor Saribaev M.A.
3. Development of high efficiency EOR methods. Scientific director: doctor of technical sciences, professorAbdeliD.Zh., executive in charge: candidate of technical sciences, associated professor Kartabai A.T.
The relevance and importance for the country's economy. Scientific work is directed in the way of EOR, decrease of water cut and reducing operating costs. The department possesses the potential needed for conduction of scientific work. All members of the department are engaged in the scientific research – development of scientific theme, participation in the scientific conferences, publishing of papers, participation in the development of oil and gas production projects and exploitation of oil and gas fields.
All faculty members are participating in scientific conferences which take place not only in the country but also abroad.
During the year 2015 the faculty members have published more than 40 scientific articles, 2 of which were published in the journals with IF, 2 monographs and 2 textbooks were published as well.
