University of Mining and Geology "St. Ivan Rilski"
The University of Mining and Geology “St. Ivan Rilski” is a learning and research center, based in Sofia where engineers in geological, mining and electromechanical specialties are being trained. TotalEnergies EP Bulgaria has a framework cooperation agreement with the University for strategic partnership in education, research and innovation in the domain of oil and gas exploration and production. The objective is to boost the employability of local talent in an increasingly competitive international environment.
The offshore drilling and HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) courses with lecturers from the TotalEnergies Professors Association were the first initiative we implemented jointly in 2015 for the students.
In 2018 the Han Asparuh reading corner was inaugurated in the university library. Arranged with branded furniture, it contains specialized literature for Oil & Gas offshore drilling, donated to the university.
In 2022, TotalEnergies supported financially a project of MGU for increasing the capacity and accuracy of the interpretation and simulation activities of the "Laboratory of 3D Modeling and Simulation" through putting into operation new hardware and software products.
