About the Congress

XIII "Oil and Gas Horizons” is the annual Youth Scientific and Practical Congress created for students, young professionals, and even pupils by Gubkin SPE SC. The official language of the Congress is English.

In 2020, 128 students from 15 countries and 43 universities became participants and volunteers of the Congress. We provide participants and delegates of the Congress with food, accommodation, and transfer. Guests of the Congress pay for everything themselves.

During three days you will be able not only to discuss the future of our industry with your peers and senior experts but also:
• present your scientific paper at Technical Sessions;
• grow your network by meeting people from different countries with different backgrounds;

"Arctic Offshore Oil and Gas industry" will become the main theme of the 2021 Congress and will drive diverse discussions around it involving students, young professionals, and leading experts.
The scientific papers of the participants do not necessarily have to be on the main theme of the Congress

Today petroleum industry is undergoing major transformations and facing new challenges. What will be the future of the oil and gas industry? How will we adapt to new realities and ongoing challenges? Will we be able to attract and retain talents?

We invite students, PhD students and young specialists not older than 35 years old to participate in Congress!

Technical Sessions

This year’s technical sessions consist of two parts: Poster Session and Paper Session. The works of the speakers will be published in the Book of Abstracts, included in the Russian Science Citation Index (Russian: РИНЦ).


Energy4me is a technical session that makes it possible for pupils to present their scientific research in the Russian language.

This session is divided into 2 directions: Upstream and Downstream. Upstream: oil exploration, drilling, engineering mechanics, geology, machine learning. Downstream: chemistry, economics, law in oil and gas industry, ecology. Moreover, this event provides technical information in energetic, science and technologies, which can be understandable for pupils. It will also be provided with free access to oil & gas knowledge in different languages. There will be a visual learning master class for pupils during the Congress.
