BIRTHDAY ANNIVERSARY OF PROMINENT OIL INDUSTRY SCIENTIST31.01.2018 / Jubilees
One of the famous scientists of the Azerbaijan oil science E.G. Shakhbazov has turned 70 years old. Eldar Kasham oglu Shahbazov was born on 29 January 1948 in Western Azerbaijan. In 1966-1972, E.K. Shahbazov studied at the Oil Mechanics Faculty of the Azerbaijan Institute of Oil and Chemistry named after M. Azizbekov (now the Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University) and received a diploma of a mechanical engineer.
Having started his professional life as an engineer in the Azerbaijan Research and Design Institute of Petroleum Engineering in 1972, E.K. Shakhbazov rose to the position of head of laboratory in the 1990s.
In 1984, he defended his thesis on "Maintenance and repair modes of lifting equipment for current and major repairs of oil and gas wells", and he was awarded the degree of Candidate of Technical Sciences.
In 1990 he defended his doctoral thesis on "Development of scientific foundations and experimental methods for increasing the reliability of mobile oil and gas equipment" and received his degree of Doctor of Engineering, and in 1997 he was awarded the academic title of Professor. In 1990-1992, he was the first pro-rector of the Sumgait branch of the Azerbaijan Oil and Chemistry Institute, and then the first deputy director of the Research Institute of Geotechnological Problems of Oil, Gas and Chemistry at the Azerbaijan State Oil Academy.
Since 1993, E.K. Shahbazov works at SOCAR as the head of the production and technical department, the adviser to the First Vice-President of SOCAR and the head of the Nanotechnologies Department.
He is a Full Member of the Ukrainian Oil and Gas Academy and, since 2014, an academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. In 2010, E.K. Shahbazov was awarded the UNESCO Prize for his contribution to the development of nanoscience and nanotechnology, and his scientific achievements were included in the UNESCO Encyclopedia among the first of our national scientific legacies. He is also a laureate of the "Gizil Gelem" ("Golden Pen") award.
Currently, E.K. Shahbazov is the deputy chairman of the "Earth Sciences" section of the Expert Council of the Higher Attestation Commission under the President of the Azerbaijan Republic, the adviser to the director of the SOCAR Oil and Gas Research and Design Institute and the adviser to the rector of the Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University.
For more than 20 years, E.K. Shahbazov has been heading the laboratory "Mathematical modeling in the field of nanotechnology in the oil industry" of the Institute of Control Systems of ANAS.
Eldar Shahbazov is one of the students of the great academician Azad Mirzajanzade, continuing to implement his ideas. As the scientific leader of fundamental research, as the main executor and as a propagandist, he has achieved a number of scientific results, skillfully using the possibilites of nanotechnology to raise innovative projects to a new level. The use of the effect of "small concentrations and disturbances" in oil science, and then in nanotechnology in the oil industry is associated with the name of Professor Eldar Shakhbazov.
Eldar Shakhbazov, a scientist distinguished by his rich life experience, professionalism, initiative, devoted his entire life to research in the field of increasing the reliability of oil machinery and equipment, creation of nanotechnologies in te oil industry, their research and extensive use in production. Eldar Shahbazov formed scientific teams capable of conducting scientific research in these areas, not only at SOCAR, but also at a number of other research institutions of our republic. The results achieved by these schools are widely used in onshore and offshore oil and gas fields of our republic.
10 Candidate dissertations supervised by him were successfully defended.
E. Shahbazov is the author of 165 scientific works, 22 patents, 12 monographs.
He spoke on the achievements of SOCAR in the United States, Britain, Norway, France, China, Russia and other countries.
By the decree of the President of our country, E. Shakhbazov was awarded "Taraggi" medal ("Progress").
Dear Eldar muallim,
On behalf of the administration and employees of the Institute of Control Systems, we cordially congratulate you on your birthday anniversary. We wish you good health, happiness in your family life and new achievements in your scientific work.
