Training program M1

First Semester

  • Mathematics:differential equations
  • General geology
  • Numerical methods
  • Informatics
  • Mineralogy
  • Structural geology
  • Geodynamics
  • 3D Geological modelling
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Subterranean hydrodynamics
  • French lanquage

Second semester

  • Well logging
  • Sedimentology and facies stratigraphy
  • Petroleum Systems: geochemistry, diagenesis and transport
  • Seismic acquisition and interpretation
  • Hydrodynamics of viscous flow
  • 3D simulation of reservoir flow
  • Geology-geochemistry field trip
  • 3D geological modelling
  • Thermodynamics of petroleum fluids
  • Reactive transport in porous media
  • Multiphase flow in porous media
  • Geological modelling of uranium deposits
  • Experimental petrophysics
  • Geostatistics
  • M-1 project on "Numerical techniques of modelling reservoir flow"



Each module consists of 25h. The evaluation is done by oral or written exam or by a mini-project.

The last part of the second semester is devoted to a M1 research project, which consists of creating a 2D numerical model (programming) of a hypothetic scenario of reservoir exploitation. The project (60 hours) validates 6 credits.
Linguistic training at Alliance Française in Almaty is also scheduled to prepare students mobility to France.
