MINEX Central Asia Forum  

From 31 March to 2 April 2014 our company participated in the MINEX Central Asia Forum.

The MINEX Central Asia Forum is one of the most remarkable international events in the Central Asia, where all parties of interest are able to discuss potential perspectives of the innovation course of development for the geological industry of the Central Asian countries. The Forum is an international scene to arrange business meetings and presentations devoted to matters of advanced technologies to be applied in exploration of new fields, geological data processing and interpretation, financial support attraction, establishment of technological and innovation centers on the basis of international partnerships, etc. The Forum greatly promotes development and extension of international business relationships and attraction of new investments into the mining industry of Kazakhstan and Central Asia countries.  

Over 350 leaders and specialists of the mining industry from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tadjikistan, Mongolia, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, Ukraine, Great Britain, France, Germany, Finland, Canada, Australia, Austria and USA participated in the MINEX Central Asia Forum 2014.   

Plenty of two-side and multiside meetings with participation of leaders of relevant Ministries and geological services of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Germany was held. In process of the meetings the servicing, geological and ivestment companies signed a number of important contracts and agreements on international cooperation.

At Forum`s business-podiums and master-classes there were presented over 70 valuable reports and presentations devoted to perspectives and problems in development of the mining industry in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

Qualification upgrading courses

On 11-16 March, professionals of the department of engineering survey and subsoil monitoring of GEOKEN SPC arranged and run the qualification upgrading courses on geodynamic monitoring at the hydrocarbons fields of Kazakhstan.

The re-training course covers two themes: “Application of gravimetry in assessment of geodynamic status of the geological environment. Technology and operational procedures of gravimetric measurements”, and “Performance of highly accurate satellite observations on geodynamic testing sites”.

The re-training programs were developed with taking into consideration the recent achievements in the hardware/software complex solutions applied in geodynamic surveys on the basis of development of associated standards (guidelines and manuals) and experience of GEOKEN SPC.  The courses included both basic lectures about concept of geodynamic monitoring and practical exercises with the most advanced hardware/software complex on geodynamic surveys.

Theoretical and practical trainings were run by leading specilists of the company: A.Zh.Togaibekov (the course on GPS observations), Ye.Kalen, G.K.Umirova (course on gravimetric measurements).
The courses were attended by specialists both of GEOKEN SPC and EcoGeoMunaiGaz, a company-partner. In total, 14 people attended the gravimetrical observation course, and 18
the GPS observations one. Upon completion of the training courses the attendees passed the testing and got relevant certificates.
