Guests from the Cuban petroleum powerhouse were at KFU on March 9th – 10th.
They visited the Geological Museum, the 3D Geo Center, the Museum of History, and the Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies labs.
Deputy Director of IGPT for Marketing Ildus Chukmarov gave some details, “Our educators already visited Havana and gave lectures at Cupet. Now we offer them several education programs to choose from. Our goal is to become partners of Cupet in personnel training. Of course, those will be fee-based programs”.
The cooperation in research is also interesting to both parties. Research for Russian companies is already underway, and the same is planned for Cuban partners, as Dr. Chukmarov said. Kazan University will be glad to help Cuba advance towards self-sustainability in hydrocarbon production.
The next academic year will be marked by the arrival of the first batch of 22 Cupet employees to KFU.
