Kazazabrang Dauda Kazazabrang Elijah Dauda was born in the beautiful city of Kaduna in Nigeria and began his formal education in De Kapital in Bwari, Abuja Nigeria before concluding primary education in Faith Foundation Nursery and Primary School, Kubwa, Abuja. He did very well in his National common entrance examination, which got him a scholarship to study in The school for the Gifted Child, Gwagwalada, Abuja in 2005 where he studied there for 2 years, but due to the lack of spiritual growth his parents transferred him to Baptist High School, Jos, which played a very vital and pivotal role in his life and subsequently graduated in 2012, then he got admitted to Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to study Chemical Engineering. He excelled in that school and thus was awarded a scholarship to study Petroleum Engineering in Kazan, Russia in 2014 graduating in 2019 but due to tough financial circumstances in his family he had to go back home to support his family in 2019, which led to him taking an academic break and thus forfeiting one year of his scholarship which led to him applying for the Imomoh scholarship. He is now back in Russia to complete his studies and is very grateful for this opportunity.

Prediction of Technological Properties of Tatarstan Natural Bitumens on the Basis of Chemical and Geochemical Characteristics of Their Composition G.P. Kayukova, G.V. Romanov, Institute of Organic and Physical Chemistry named after A.E. Arbuzov, Kazan Scientific Center, Russian Academy of Sciences, Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia Abstract This paper is devoted to solution of problems connected with forming deposits of heavy oils and natural bitumens in Permian sedimentations on the territory of Tatarstan and to questions of prognostic evaluation of their technological properties in relation to degree of their natural transformations. Comparative investigation of composition and properties of their various representatives (heavy oils, malts, asphalts and asphaltites) occurring on drill log and proved area of Permian producing deposits on the territory of m Tatarstan in depth interval from 1 to 349 m was carried out, in connection with solution of problems on preparation of natural bitumen fields to development. The systematization of studied samples recovered by both natural inflow from wells and their extraction from bitumen saturated rocks of various age and mineralogical composition by oil-bitumen-bearing complexes, and within the last ones, by relation to local erosion basis, allowed to reason that characteristic changes in the composition bitumens leading to formation of their various chemical types are determined mainly by biodegradation process presenting practically in all oil-bitumen-bearing complexes and, especially, enhancing in carbonate reservoirs and horizons consisting of fragmental terrigenous sedimentary rocks undergone the washout and influence of external factors. It was shown that biodegradation processes leading to absence of light hydrocarbon fractions in their composition, including normal and isoprenoid alkanes, and predominance of resin-asphalt compounds enriched by hydroxyl and ester oxygen, along with sulfur and nitrogen atoms, determine technological properties of natural bitumens during their recovery and processing. Introduction Wide spectrum of natural bitumens representatives on the territory of Tatarstan concentrated as formations and deposits in reservoir rock and dispersed on great areas in sandstones and carbonates is of definite interest, mainly in two aspects - geochemical and applied ones. In terms of geochemistry, it is very valuable for investigation of genesis and chemical nature of various fuel minerals and their interrelation permitting to know mysteries of most complicated transformations of organic substances during geological periods. Applied aspect of the problem is connected with possibility to evaluate technological and trade characteristics of heavy oils and bitumens in order elaborate some proposals about the most rational directions of production and utilization of these fuel minerals as alternative sources of chemical raw materials.
