The Institute of Geology and Geochemistry of Petroleum and Coal is concerned with two primary fields of investigations. The first focal point is the exploration and production of coal, petroleum and natural gas, including unconventional energy sources. We have many contacts to domestic- and foreign-based companies, at which many of our graduates are now employed. The second focal point includes the investigation of organic pollutants in our environment, especially in water and sediments.

Performs studies on
  • Petroleum and coal geochemistry
  • Petrophysics of tight reservoirs including shales and coal
  • Numerical simulations of sediment basins
  • Environmental organic geochemistry
