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.
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.
RUDN University biologist with colleagues from Brazil and Iran found how to alleviate the stress of fish during transportation. It turned out that this can be achieved with salted water.
RUDN University agronomists have proposed a new scheme for fertilizing winter wheat, which allows increasing the yield by 68%. The key to this is in the combination of nitrogen and growth regulators.
