History of the Department of Petroleum Geology
050602 - The goal of the Department of Petroleum Geology, training in the specialty "Engineering Geology", is to prepare highly qualified bachelors, masters, engineers and doctors of philosophy in various fields of geology and oil and gas.
The current Department of Petroleum Geology was founded in 1934. In 1934-1943, the leadership of the department was entrusted to the full member of the Academy of Sciences of the Azerbaijan Republic, Professor M.V. Abramovich.
In 1943-1966, the department was headed by a full member of the Academy of Sciences of the Azerbaijan Republic, Professor A.A. Yakubov, and during these years, under his leadership, a number of valuable textbooks and teaching aids were published. The textbook "Geology of oil and natural gas", published for the first time in the Azerbaijani language, has not lost its relevance. Professor A.A. Yakubov achieved even greater success in the field of training scientific personnel. During his work, more than 30 candidates of sciences have been trained.
Professor A.A. Yakubov first created the "Scientific Laboratory" at the department and headed it in 1961-1966. The teachers of the department were involved in the scientific work carried out by this laboratory, and the results obtained were applied in various areas of the oil industry.
In 1967-1970, the department was headed by a full member of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Professor Sh.F. Mehdiyev. During this time, a lot of work has been done in the direction of training geologists and oilmen and scientific personnel.
In 1970, the department was headed by a full member of the Academy of Sciences of the Azerbaijan Republic, Professor F.M. Bagirzade.
In subsequent years, the department was headed by Professor A.S. Gadzhikasumov (1971-1981), professor A.A. Javadov (1981-1986), professor V.Yu.

I am studying, the department conducts research work (R&D).
Topic of research to be held in 2021-2025:
"Features of search and exploration of various types of traps in the South Caspian megabasin, calculation of oil and gas reserves and creation of geological foundations for the development of oil and gas fields."
The Faculty of Geology and Exploration and the Department of Petroleum Geology, in particular, have great merits in the discovery and commissioning of a number of oil and gas fields in Azerbaijan.
