  • The solving of relevant problems in the Russian subsoil and fuel and energy sectors and increasing their efficiency, taking into consideration economic globalization and environmental problems; improving subsoil state policy management; methodology and management mechanisms of subsoil management and FEC in Russia; innovative strategic management of the oil and gas complex, enabling the sustainable development of the national economy.
  • Scientific research covering topics linked to the strategic management of the oil and gas complex, economic efficiency of mineral raw materials production and processing, analytical and administrative innovations application, development and implementation of economic and legal management mechanisms of subsoil use, the balanced development of Russia’s mining complexes, and the strategy development of the scientific school, are all carried out as part of federal and departmental programs, scientific research grants, and company contracts

Collaboration with foreign and Russian companies, institutes of higher education

The department works with the major large subsoil and fuel and energy companies, as well as mining and metals firms, multinational oil and gas firms, transport and oil and gas storage firms, and engineering and design companies. Integration of the department’s scientific and educational work with successfully run mining companies is carried out by performing scientific research and projects provided for the firms Apatit, SUEK- Holding, the scientific center of the Kola Russian Academy of Sciences, and other partners. The integration of the department’s scientific and educational activity with foreign mining and geological higher education colleges and universities is carried out through work and study placements for teaching staff, postgraduates and students as well as conferences: the Freiberg Mining Academy and the Pforzheim University (Germany), the Krakow Mining Academy and the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences (Poland), the École des Mines de Paris and the Nancy Higher mining school, (France), the Leoben University of Mining and Metallurgy (Austria), the Innovation and technological center in Helsinki, Lappenranta and Helsinki Universities of Technology (Finland), Tallinn technological university and the University of Applied sciences (Estonia) and some other internationally recognized science and educational centers.
In the period 2007-2011, the department took part in joint international scientific programs with Norwegian companies such as Econ Pöyry, Greater Stavanger. The results are presented in scientific reports approved at conferences held in St. Petersburg, Murmansk, Krasnoyarsk, Stavanger (Norway), Freiberg, Pforzheim (Germany).
