Young scientist 4.0
The Global Energy Association has summarised the results of the Young Scientist 4.0 educational programme held jointly with PJSC Gazprom. The winners are Mars Zakiryanov, Stanislav Kalyuzhny, and Nikita Konkov.

The educational programme started in July 2022. Based on the results of participation in Gazprom’s corporate youth programmes, 33 trainees were selected for the Young Scientist 4.0. During the first stage, they participated in master classes on development of self-presentation skills and attended a course of lectures of Russian and international experts in energy and global scientific cooperation. At the next stage, the specialists showed video presentations of their own research projects. The best of them were chosen by the working group members.

The winners are:

  • Mars Zakiryanov, Head of the Service for Managing the Technical Condition and Integrity of the Gas Transmission System (GTS) of Gazprom Transgaz Ufa;
  • Stanislav Kalyuzhny, Lead Engineer, Central Chemical Analytical Laboratory, Gazprom Transgaz Krasnodar;
  • Nikita Konkov, Deputy Director of the Engineering and Technology Centre (ETC) of Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk.

“The Young Scientist 4.0 programme helps researchers in acquiring the skills to disseminate their ideas and developments more widely, both in the academic community and in the practical energy environment. In the future, it will be useful for their career, increase recognition and citation, which will help them qualify for prestigious awards,” said Sergey Brilev, the President of the Global Energy Association.

Each of the three winners will be assigned a mentor from among the industry leading experts. They will also be able to publish a joint chapter in the Global Energy Association’s next annual report, 10 Breakthrough Ideas in Energy for the Next 10 Years.

The award ceremony is to take place on the eve of the Power Engineers’ Day, in St. Petersburg, December 2022.

Russian scientists propose new diagnostics method for wellbore casings in oil wells

Scientists from Perm Federal Research Center of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (PFRC UB RAS) and Loughborough University (UK) have developed a new method for inspecting wellbore casings in oil wells that has the potential to streamline the fault detection procedure. The results of the study will be published in the journal Geophysics issued by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

Hydropower plants provided for half of growth of RES capacity in Africa

Africa facilitated the commissioning of hydro power plants based on the renewable energy sources (RES): in 2021, the incremental RES capacity in the region made 2.2 GW, and in 2022 – 2.7 GW according to the newly published annual review by IRENA. Almost half of this growth – a bit less than 1.3 GW – was provided by hydro power plants (HPPs), the remaining 1.4 GW fall on the solar panels (1 GW), wind generators (0.3 GW) and geothermal units (0.1 GW).
