The Late Paleozoic successions of Russia have a long history of study and are renowned for excellent outcrops that occur over a vast territory, a considerable variety of depositional types, and abundant fossils. This makes Russia one of the most famous and popular places for reservoir analysis, global and regional tectonic reconstructions, paleogeographical and biostratigraphic research, and Late Paleozoic paleontology.

The territory of the Republic of Tatarstan is a part of the East European (Russian) Platform. The crystalline basement of the platform is composed of Archean and Proterozoic rocks and located at a depth of 1500 to 2000 m and more. The sedimentary cover is composed of Devonian, Carboniferous, Permian, Jurassic, Cretaceous, Neogene, and Quaternary rocks. The uplifts of Devonian and Carboniferous rocks contain oil resources.

The Republic of Tatarstan is the oldest oil production region of the Russian Federation and a leader in bitumen reserve volume and in its scientific research and development. Sedimentary sequences of this region are of enormous economic interest for the future exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbon and mineral resources in Russia.

Target Audience

The course is designed for Master's students and PhD students with a general interest in sedimentology, geochemistry and biostratigraphy of hydrocarbon resources, exemplified here by the Upper Paleozoic deposits of Volga-Kama Region.

School's aim

The summer school aims to train students in the different methods of the investigation of sedimentary deposits mainly in marine and subordinately in continental settings which are vital for the exploration and exploitation of resources, ranging from hydrocarbons to geothermal energy. Exemplified by the geology and the energy resources of European Russia, i.e. sedimentology, geochemistry and biostratigraphy of Devonian, Carboniferous and Permian deposits of the Volga-Kama Region, the school's content will provide the participants with a broad overview in each exploration tool.
