March 26-27, 2019. American Association of Petroleum Geologists AAPF regional conference was held in Vienna, Austria. The theme of the conference was “Paratethys Petroleum Systems: Between Central Europe and the Caspian Region”. Deputy Director of GC RAS A. I. Rybkina made an oral presentation at the conference.

Over the past decade, there has been a significant increase in exploration and production activity in regions that were previously not well studied, and new frontiers for the exploration of oil and gas are opening up in the world. This is a result of improved technology of geological survey, as well as geopolitical developments, which have led to increased availability in some countries. This year the conference was devoted to Paratethys, which is of particular interest due to insufficient knowledge on this theme.

The conference discussed issues of developing the ROSA database by obtaining new GIS data on the history of the development of oil and gas industry, as part of the implementation of the state task of GC RAS. Alena Igorevna Rybkina also made an oral presentation on “the Eastern Paratethys During the Messinian Salinity Crisis”, dealing with the main features of sedimentation in the Eastern Paratethys of the Upper Miocene. This presentation is of particular interest to a wide range of specialists in oil and gas geology and reflects the results of the implementation of the RFBR grant 17-05-01085.

June 28-July 03, 2019. An expedition of researchers of GC ras to the area of the Lower Kansky granitoid massif (Zheleznogorsk, Krasnoyarsk Territory) took place to conduct geodynamic observations. The field work was carried out as part of the RSF project No. 18-17-00241 “Study of the sustainability of rock masses based on system analysis of geodynamic processes for geo-environmentally safe underground isolation of radioactive waste” in collaboration with the Institute for Safe Development of Nuclear Energy of RAS and with technical support from the Zheleznogorsky branch of FSUE NO RAO.

July 01, 2019. According to the results of the 2019 competition for grants from the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) for the event “Conducting Initiative Research by Young Scientists” of the Presidential Program of Research Projects Implemented by Leading Scientists, the project “System Analysis of the Effects of Astronomical Cyclicality on Paratethys Deposition Sedimentation” was supported. Project Manager is Deputy Director of GC RAS for Development A. I. Rybkina. Responsible project implementers - Professor, Head of the Department "Oil and Gas Sedimentology and Marine Geology" of MSU Yu. V. Rostovtseva, Head of the Laboratory of Geophysical Data, GC RAS B. Dzeboev , M.Sc., Laboratory of Innovation Projects, GC RAS Yu. I. Nikolova.

June 27, 2019. The application “Interactive GIS of multi-criteria seismic hazard assessment” was launched on the basis of the GC RAS geoportal, the main developer of which was Junior Researcher of the Laboratory of Innovation Projects Yu. I. Nikolova.

June 26, 2019. Chief Researcher of GC RAS Dr. Sc. Sergey Agayan and Leading Researcher Shamil Bogoutdinov met with the head of the Chair of geophysics of the geological department of the Moscow State University professor A.A. Bulychev to discuss the current state and prospects of cooperation between the Moscow State University and GC RAS.
