RUDN University scientists participated in the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018)

RUDN University scientists participated in the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018)

On the 25 - 28 of February 2018 in Houston, USA, was held the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018) - the largest international industrial and scientific event in the field of creation and application of various technologies of the oil refining industry.

On the 25 — 28 of February 2018 in Houston, USA, was held the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil & Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018) — the largest international industrial and scientific event in the field of creation and application of various technologies of the oil refining industry.

GOPE-2018 aimed to join the scientific community working on various aspects of research and development to promote the exchange of ideas across a wide range of disciplines, including significant advancement and challenges in the energy sector — gas, oil, coal and fuel engineering. Prospects for the development of the oil and gas industry are mainly associated with the wide manufacturing application of advanced technologies and equipment to improve the efficiency of technological processes, their economy, reliability and safety.

This year the conference attracted more than 150 scientists working in the fields of gas, oil, coal and fuel engineering from the USA, the Netherlands, Mexico, Korea, Japan, Australia, Singapore, China. During the work of the conference were presented more than 100 reports. In particular, the conference was attended by representatives of fuel corporations and universities: Schlumberger, Davis L. Ford & Associates Nalco Champion, University of Maryland (129 QS World University Rankings), Louisiana State University (USA), University of Edinburgh (23 QS World University Rankings, United Kingdom), Petro China Southwest Oil and Gas Field Company, China University of Petroleum, University of Houston (USA), etc.

Jointly with representative of A.V. Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis of Russian Academy of Sciences (TIPS RAS) was presented report “Peculiarities of hydrocarbons transformation of benzene and adamantane range in the conditions of acid catalysis”. The report was devoted to the description of intramolecular reorganizations and displacements in the mechanism of isomerization reactions of hydrocarbons of the adamantane series.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

RUDN University professor suggested how to clean up space debris

A specialist in spacecraft movement control analyzed the process of placing vehicle stages, boosters, and other space debris into the so-called disposal orbit and suggested cleaning lower orbits up with a spacecraft that has modules with engine units on board. These modules will attach to space debris objects and move them away. As for the geostationary orbit, a preferable way to clean it up would be a towing spacecraft that transports space debris objects into the disposal orbit. The research was carried out in collaboration with a team from Bauman Moscow State Technical University.
