«Great topics, just what is required at my organization, especially, the basics of reservoir simulation as well as the ability to apply ready-made models in the current development».

«The excellent organization of the learning process, professional lecturers, high-level equipment in the classes».

«I liked the course, I especially liked the attentive attitude of the lecturers to any questions and requirements of the group».

Training is conducted at the Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies at the following address: Kremlyovskaya str., 4/5, Kazan, Russia.

We can provide accommodation assistance for non-resident students in order to book KFU campus / hotel rooms.
In addition to the program, there are coffee breaks and excursions in the Museum of History of Kazan University, the Geological Museum named after A.A. Stukenberg and the Kazan Kremlin.
