Knowledge Sharing is a project designed for young professionals to share their knowledge and experience with students. This project helps students to understand and learn more about different aspects of oil and gas sector from lectures hold by representatives of oil and gas companies. Such events are very important not only for the members of the SPE Student Chapter, but also for all the students of Gubkin University.



International Education Program SPE – Energy4me is an event, that provides technical  information in energetic, science and technologies, which can be understandable for  schools students. The project also makes free access to oil & gas knowledge in different  languages. Activists of Gubkin University SPE Student Chapter visit schools and hold  master classes for pupils with using visual materials and teaching them what oil is, how it  is extracted , how do we drill a well etc.


An intellectual quiz “PetroOlympic Games” is focused on the theoretical knowledge in the oil and gas industry. It is a question and answer game between five teams. The questions are usually based on such disciplines as Geosciences, Chemical Engineering, Drilling, Mechanical Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Offshore Petroleum Engineering, Oil and Gas Transportation and Storage. Points are summarized in accordance with the correctly answered questions. There are three rounds in the game. The members of each team usually get an extensive experience working in a team.


Gubkin University SPE Student Chapter holds 5 language clubs: English Club, German Club, French Club, Spanish Club and Russian Club for foreigners. These students help others to learn a new language and tell them about the culture and traditions of the country. During the classes students learn all the grammar and lexical features of the language as well as practice their speaking skills.
