International Oil and Gas Majoring Students Forum “New Generation: Across the Universe”

From 11th till 17th of September, 2017 the 2nd International Oil and Gas Majoring Students Forum “New Generation: Across the Universe” will be held at Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (National Research University).

The goal of the Forum is to gather the most outstanding students of different oil and gas majors from the world’s best universities to give them a unique opportunity to share their ideas and experience and to solve the problems of world student society as well as to determine the future tendencies of the scientific and technical development of the global oil and gas industry.
For the 2nd year the Forum is supported by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), World petroleum Council (WPC) and International Gas Union (IGU).
Last year the rector of Gubkin University Victor Martynov, deputy minister of Education and Sciences of the Russian Federation Veniamin Kaganov, president and chairperson of the Board Directors of PetroSA company Nosizwe Nokwe-Macamo, president of Schlumberger company Gokhan Saygi, vice-president of Weatherford Russia company Fayaz Kamalov took part in the Opening Ceremony of the Forum. The vice-president of the World Petroleum Council Anatoly Zolotukhin was the moderator of the Forum.
“Gubkin University is unique in our country and in the entire world just as unique as the petroleum industry. This event has a great value for making contacts and further collaboration. Hopefully, we will manage to solve the current problems of the oil and gas industry, as well as get acquainted with Moscow and culture of Russia. Surely, after this event you will wish to learn more, visit cities and countrysides of our great and immense Country,” – deputy minister of Education and Science of Russian Federation Veniamin Kaganov said. In 2016, the Forum was attended by 117 students from 52 countries and 40 universities from all over the world. Through six days delegates took part in different activities: solving a business case from Schlumberger, attending plenary sessions, conducting dialogue with oil and gas companies and government representatives in a press conference “Development of the youth BRICS tendency in the oil and gas industry”, visiting “Career Pathways Fair”. A fruitful cultural program followed: visiting the Moscow Kremlin Museums, ice skating class, the festival “Cuisines of Russia” and “Miss University 2016” Annual Competition. One of the significant events became the trip to Gubkin University “Zaluchie” camp, where guests saw real Russian winter, got acquainted with nature of a protected forest, had fun and made friends.

This year the Organizing Committee promises to increase the level and scope of the event, so don’t miss this opportunity – the registration is already open on http://across.gubkin.ru/

Canada’s first exports of liquefied natural gas may soon be heading overseas

Canada’s first exports of liquefied natural gas may soon be heading overseas

In 2016 Cheniere Energy Inc. built an LNG export terminal along Louisiana’s coast and became the only company shipping U.S. shale gas by tanker. Now it’s looking for supplies to send abroad.

It’ll receive supplies from the Montney shale play, which straddles Alberta and British Columbia. “We recently entered into our first supply deal to receive Montney gas, on a Henry hub index, from a Canadian producer,” Chief Commercial Officer Anatol Feygin said on a conference call, referring to the Louisiana gas price benchmark.

“We’re able to build a portfolio of supply from domestic gas producers and take full advantage of the cost-competitive basins across the U.S. […] In fact, it doesn’t stop at the U.S., as we recently entered into our first supply deal to receive Montney gas.” – he also said.

Canada’s gas explorers are having great lengths go to get their fuel to market as they face escalating competition from U.S. shale drillers at home. liquefied natural-gas export terminals have been proposed along Canada’s West Coast, but it’ll be years before any are up and running (as a result of environmentalists and native groups protests). According to Victoria Zaretskaya, an analyst with the Energy Information Administration, no Canadian gas has ever been exported as LNG.

Who knows, maybe one day tanker with Canadian LNG will arrive at Polish LNG Terminal in Swinoujscie.
