General

The second International Youth Research and Practical Forum "Oil Capital" will continue its work on facilitating the international collaboration of the young researchers and the introduction of innovations in the fuel and energy sector. The Forum will contribute to:

- the building of a firm infrastructure, the comprehensive and sustainable industrialization and the implementation of innovations;

- strengthening of the means for the reaching of sustainable development goals and the intensification of the global partnership mechanisms for sustainable development;

- building the rational consumption and production models.

At the same time the Forum addresses a number of the local goals and objectives which contribute to the achievement of the main Strategic Development Goal of Ugra - the improvement of the quality life of the population of the Autonomous Okrug as a result of the formation of the new, based on innovations and globally competitive economic model.

The relevant in the modern situation objectives may be grouped into 3 priority blocks for the Ugra development:

The first block is the formation of the "smart economy" model based on innovative transformation of the oil production industry, introduction of the market driven mentality as the basis for diversification and further development of the autonomous Okrug as the technological foothold of Russia in the development of the North and the Arctic.

The second block is the formation of the globally competitive human capital: the achievement of the specialists' global competitive level owing to their professional training, creation of conditions for maintaining good health and higher life expectancy, their cultural, spiritual and moral development; ensuring the guaranteed protection of the rights of the indigenous peoples of the North, as well as their comprehensive social, economic and cultural growth.

The third block of the objectives is the creation of the conditions for the formation of a favorable environment based on the breakthrough development of innovative technologies, "green oil production", and waste management; the formation and implementation of the rational natural resource management standards for the sake of preservation of the wildlife potential of Ugra for the future generations.

In the course of the Forum "Oil Capital", at the International Youth
Workshop and Conference, the Innovation Projects Contest, Innovative Projects Exhibition, and the work of the workshop "Professionals for FES" the participants will in varying degrees touch upon the problems of each of the aforementioned priorities blocks .

Round table discussions on the topical fuel-and-energy sector problems


Dates: 21-22 February, 2019

The organizers intend to organize the round-table discussions with the leading fuel-and-energy sector experts on the following topics:


Round table discussion "Global trends in the oil and gas industry: today and tomorrow"

The global power industry does not stand still. The large scale changes within the sector require the rethinking of the ways of future development of the oil and gas sector. Maintaining its role as the driver of the global economy, and playing an important role in ensuring the international energy security the oil industry is in dire need of the search for new realities both in the pricing policy and the taxation practices; as well as of the development of the lean, innovative, and, most importantly, economically viable production. The key topics of the discussion will be the new challenges and risks of the oil and gas industry, its potential today and tomorrow.


Round table discussion "Potential for the development of mature fields under the present economic conditions. Integration of efforts"

Mature fields form a greater part of the global reserves. In Russia alone they account for 80% of the reserves, at the same time they contribute 62% of the total production. Every year it is getting increasingly difficult to make the production of a large part of the hydrocarbons from such fields economically profitable. Revitalizing the fields with the residual hydrocarbon reserves is one of the highest global priorities. The round table experts will provide answers to the relevant questions: whether the mature fields have any future under the present economic conditions, whether the innovative technologies are capable of improving oil recovery from such fields; and whether artificial intellect is capable of replacing humans at the facilities.


Round table discussion "Promising technological solutions in the oil & gas industry"

As a global economy locomotive the oil and gas industry may well become a leader in the innovations development. The need to improve new technologies for the search, exploration and production dictates the new transformations in the sector. Today the emphasis is made on the development of the hard-to-recover reserves and the implementation of the intellectual digital solutions in the process. Attention of the round table participants will be focused on the discussions of the industry digitalization potential and the formation of the high tech oil and gas services.
