    The Institute was organized in the system of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1934 and was named the Institute of Combustible Fossils.
    The Institute was created as a multidiscipline scientific institution, its main task was to do the detailed research of combustible fossils – oil, coal, shale oil, peat and sapropel – from the point of view of their genesis, the conditions of formation field, composition and physical-chemical and technological properties. According to it the following laboratories were developed:
    - the oil genesis and oilfield;
    - oil chemistry;
    - paraphase cracking;
    - hydrogenation;
    - chemical coal technology
    - coal genesis;
    - underground gasification of heavy oil.
    Nowadays the Institute consists of 23 research-scientific laboratories, 2 groups and technology development department.
    The total number of the staff is about 500 people among them 300 research specialists including 5 members of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 48 doctors and 139 candidates of sciences.
    The Institute specialists participate in scientific-research studies within the framework of home and foreign scientific funds.


  1. chemistry and oil and gas technology;
  2. petroleum production and oil geology.

The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
