GECF Secretary General met with Director of Rosneft Oil Company R & D and Technical Regulations Department
On November 1 H.E. GECF Secretary General Dr. Yury Sentyurin held a meeting with Mr. Eduard Timashev, Director of R & D and Technical Regulations Department of Russian leading petroleum company Rosneft.
Since R & D and Technical Regulations Department represents Corporate Research Engineering Division (CRED), based in Doha, possible areas and forms of cooperation were risen up during the comprehensive discussion.
CRED is a key unit in making all scientific and technical decisions across Rosneft business areas from geological study of subsurface resources up to the output of final commercial products in oil and gas refining and petrochemicals. Among CRED specialization areas are upstream gas technologies and activities, oil refining and petrochemical industry, implementation of special technologies and software as well as its further processing and maintaining.
Based on unique specialization on innovation technologies, unprecedented experience, the CRED Headquarters’ location in the GECF hosting country, Qatar, one of the most promising priority area for further cooperation between the GECF and Rosneft arises in the framework of implementation of the joint Gas Research Institute project to be based in the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria.
